Welcome to the School of Nursing

The School of Nursing, located in Washington, D.C., is dedicated to the professional education of both undergraduate and graduate nurses. We are able to leverage our location in the nation’s capital to provide outstanding clinical, health policy, and research experiences for our students.

In addition to our bachelor of science in nursing program (BSN), we offer master’s degree programs (nurse practitioner), a doctor of nursing practice option, and a PhD program. Our graduate programs are tailored to the needs of working nurses who are interested in career-enhancing opportunities.
