GW Nursing's 10th Anniversary logo

This spring will mark 10 years since GW Nursing was chartered as the 10th school at the George Washington University. During our first decade, we have achieved many successes, including recruiting renowned faculty, receiving national recognition for our graduate programs, and launching innovative academic initiatives that will shape future generations of nurses and nurse leaders. We hope that you will join us in celebrating these accomplishments at various festivities throughout the spring as we look forward to our next decade.
