Laurie Dodge Wilson holds a joint appointment with GW Nursing and with the George Washington University Medical Faculty Associates Comprehensive Geriatric Medicine and Palliative Care Clinic practicing as a Gerontological Nurse Practitioner in primary care, long-term care and homecare. Ms. Wilson has been practicing since 1995 and brings experience in teaching, competency development and clinical practice.

In addition to her clinical practice, she teaches in the Adult-Gerontology Primary Care Nurse Practitioner program and has participated in grant work aimed at infusing essential content related to the care of older adults into overall master's NP curriculum. Prior to joining GW Nursing, she was the Gerontology Program Director for the American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN). In this position, she served as the Project Investigator for several John A Hartford Foundation grants. She also facilitated the development of AACN's Recommended Baccalaureate Competencies and Curricular Guidelines for the Nursing Care of Older Adults (2010) and played an integral role in the development and dissemination of several of AACN's other competencies. Her efforts have included implementation of nationwide faculty development opportunities to assist nurse educators with incorporating geriatric-focused nursing content and learning opportunities into the BSN and MSN curricula.
