Final Skills Assessment

All nurse practitioner students are required to complete a final skills assessment, which is two days before graduation, so you can participate in graduation ceremonies on the same trip. This skills assessment includes testing with standardized patients, a comprehensive exam and sessions on special clinical skills.

Project Presentation

Prior to graduation, you will present your work in an open forum to GW Nursing faculty and your peers. This experience occurs just prior to graduation in mid- to late May, so you can plan to attend both.
