Our trip to Ecuador with The Global Initiatives March 11-20 was an experience like no other. Working directly in the local community, collaborating with local health care professionals, provided us with a unique opportunity to see health care in a way we had never seen before. One day we walked nine miles through the streets of Tumbaco, going door to door administering Polio vaccines and, in their native language of Spanish, educating families on maintaining immunizations.
A new division of the George Washington University School of Nursing is translating the creativity, expertise, intellectual capacity and innovative spirit of its faculty and staff into new and exciting ventures.

Current research suggests that medical error is the third-leading cause of death in the United States, and not just in hospitals. Medical errors happen in every setting. It’s estimated that 22% of Medicare beneficiaries experience harm in skilled nursing homes, costing approximately $2.8 billion per year and almost 60% of these errors were preventable, according to an HHS report.
