Latest Edition of GW Nursing Magazine

Entering summer, GW Nursing found itself at a crossroad with the departure of Dean Pamela Jeffries, who had led the school for six years. Her tenure proved monumental for the young school and ensured that it was on solid footing moving forward, with steady leadership, a strong research portfolio, and student scholarship as its highest priority. The fall e-issue of GW Nursing magazine delves into these issues and more and illustrates some of the amazing work being done by the GW Nursing community. Enjoy this issue and, as always, stay safe and healthy.
