The Georgetown University Experience
Delivered Online

Georgetown University School of Nursing is committed to offering driven, compassionate nurses the high-quality education they need to become leaders in health care settings.

To honor this commitment to excellence and innovation in the field, Georgetown University has been delivering graduate nursing programs online since 2011. Our classes and coursework are delivered through a sophisticated platform designed with the needs of online learners in mind, backed by research in curriculum and pedagogy.

By combining intuitive virtual learning with extensive in-person preparation, our academically rigorous, values-based nursing programs empower you to practice with purpose.

Engage in Open Dialogue in Live Classes

You will join fellow nurses in weekly live classes, designed and led by renowned Georgetown University School of Nursing faculty members. The collaborative environment allows for in-depth discussions, real-time presentations, and on-screen annotations.

Below, you can view a sample of a live class session. This selection was recorded during Health Care Ethics (NURO 518), one of our core courses:

Breakout rooms facilitate group projects and enable discussions in a more intimate setting.

Recorded sessions allow you to review live class sessions any time, from anywhere.

Real-Time Interaction encourages you to form strong relationships with 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.
