GW School of Nursing's Center for Health Policy and Media Engagement invites you to an information session on creating a GW Nursing student-led chapter of AcademyHealth. The IOM's landmark "Future of Nursing" report calls for nurses to be "full partners" in the development and delivery of health care.
The creation of the student chapter will provide students the opportunity to gain leadership experience and work with faculty who are national experts in health policy.
