Some of the most exciting and rewarding events outside of the classroom and clinical experiences are the pinning ceremony, graduation, commencement and doctoral hooding at the George Washington University School of Nursing. Each marks a special accomplishment, students are recognized for their scholarly achievements as well as their dedication to the nursing profession.
Commencement is a hallmark event for all community members. While each school holds its own ceremony, University Commencement on the National Mall includes graduates from all degree levels and schools. Graduating students will take the first step of their lifelong journey as GW alumni with the nation’s most recognizable landmarks and monuments serving as a backdrop.
To prepare our undergraduate students for the rigors of further academic study, we require them to create and present an academic research poster before the end of their time in the program. Students present their findings in a setting similar to what they might encounter when presenting at a conference.
