Meet Your Support Team

Student Success Specialist

Student Success Specialists support you from enrollment through graduation by providing proactive outreach and resources necessary for success. You will first meet the Student Success team in your Program Welcome Session. Your assigned Student Success Specialist will help connect you to the Georgetown University community and resources and will be your main contact regarding processes such as CastleBranch, registration, and 2GU navigation and access.

The Student Success team offers extended hours and is a good point of contact if you have questions or need to be connected to resources. You also have access to the 24/7 technical support team. You can contact both teams at 877-503-4676 or OnlineNursingStudentSupport@georgetown.edu.

Academic Advising Deans

In addition to your Student Success Specialist, you will be assigned an Advising Dean (AD) by specialization in order to promote optimal progress throughout your program. Your AD is an expert in adult learning and managing multiple responsibilities as well as in the policies and procedures that guide course progression, plans of study, leaves, university procedures, and broader resources.

Due to the individual nature of academic advising, ADs are most easily available by appointment. To make an appointment, contact the AD for your specialization. FNP students should email Caroline Kay, and AG-ACNP, NM/WHNP, and WHNP students should email Kelly Grady.

Placement Specialists

GUSON faculty and the Nursing@Georgetown placement team will partner with you to secure clinical sites and preceptors based on your specialty and location. Your placement specialist and Clinical Faculty Advisor will carefully monitor each of your placements to ensure they meet Georgetown’s high academic standards.

The clinical placement team will schedule a welcome call with you in the semesters prior to starting your clinical practicum, where they will explain the clinical placement process and answer questions.
