Program Experience

The Nursing@Georgetown programs focus on supporting students in their goal of becoming excellent nurse practitioners. Learn more about this academically rigorous, values-based program below:

Live Online Classes

 

Using video conferencing technology, Nursing@Georgetown classes are delivered in a live, collaborative online format. Students join fellow nurses in weekly classes hosted by renowned Georgetown University School of Nursing & Health Studies (NHS) faculty members. The small student-to-faculty ratio helps students form strong relationships with their classmates and instructors.

To give you a firsthand look at the Nursing@Georgetown learning experience, we are offering you the opportunity to visit a class with current students, just as you might for an on-campus program. You will see how our technology both animates the course content and allows our students to collaborate in real time, forming close relationships even in a virtual classroom.

To schedule your class visit, contact an Admissions Counselor at 1-877-910-4692 or onlinenursingadmissions@georgetown.edu.
