Know Before You Go...

As we gear up to welcome new and returning students to GW Nursing on our Virginia Science and Technology Campus (VSTC), even in a limited capacity, we want to make sure you have the information you need before you get here. Below are details regarding COVID-19 testing protocol, how to navigate Innovation Hall, and what safety precautions we're taking as a community to ensure a healthy spring semester.


GWU Indoor Mask Mandate

Effective Saturday, July 31, 2021, until further notice, GW is reinstating its indoor mask requirement in university-owned or -operated facilities for all individuals regardless of vaccination status. This guidance is consistent with the District’s decision to again require that people wear masks in indoor public settings beginning July 31. D.C. takes this action based not only on guidance from the CDC but also as a precaution as COVID rates have increased locally.

GWorld Card

The GWorld card is your official photo ID card at GW. Your card serves as your identification and allows you to access buildings and services on campus. Any student taking in-person classes MUST have an active GWorld Card.

Online Learning at GW School of Nursing

At the GW School of Nursing, we've invested time and resources to make online course development and delivery a priority. By staffing an entire team of instructional designers and technologists to work hand-in-hand with faculty, we're able to ensure that our students receive the quality education they need to succeed. Our Online Learning and Instructional Technology (OLIT) team also provide training and one-on-one consultations with faculty to help them continually improve their online courses.
