A growing body of literature supports the connection between poverty and related social determinants of health in shaping health outcomes, especially in early brain and child development. GW Nursing’s Ashley Darcy-Mahoney, in partnership with the National League for Nursing (NLN), developed an online toolkit aimed at helping nursing schools better educate students on how to identify and address factors not previously considered when providing pediatric care.
Congratulations to Drs. Sandra Davis and Pamela Slaven-Lee for being among the 62 nurse practitioner (NP) leaders inducted as Fellows in American Association of Nurse Practitioners (AANP) in June 2019. The new AANP fellows will continue the tradition of impacting national and global health through their outstanding contributions.
GW’s master of science in nursing remained in the top 10 of US News & World Report rankings for online graduate nursing programs in 2019, tying for the sixth spot.
These rankings consider engagement, meaning accessible collaboration with both fellow students and faculty, faculty credentials, the expert opinion of nursing academic officials, and services and technologies.
Accelerated BSN, Cohort 5
Family Nurse Practitioner
The Accelerated BSN program at GW gave me confidence in my abilities I would need to succeed at the graduate level. I graduated in Spring 2014 and began the Family Nurse Practitioner master’s program in Spring 2015. I could not be happier with my decision to come to GW.
