Pursue Your Own Path

If you’re ready to evolve your nursing practice, the online Master’s in Nursing from Georgetown University School of Nursing & Health Studies offers multiple pathways for you to provide care for the populations you want to serve. A Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) degree or CNL/entry-level MSN from a CCNE- or ACEN-accredited program is required to apply.

  • Classes led by active practitioners
  • Applied learning in your own community
  • Dedicated student support

Real-world experience plays a critical role in developing our students. In addition to attending weekly, live classes, you can expect to participate in Objective Clinical Intensives (OCIs) — academic visits during which you’ll learn and practice clinical skills, and complete in-person physical assessments. Upon completing the program, nurses graduate ready to advance their careers and continue their path as reflective health care leaders and scholars.

Join a nursing community dedicated to intellectual inquiry and compassionate care.
