The Nursing@Georgetown program focuses 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.
Below, you can view an example of a live class session. This selection was recorded during Health Care Ethics (NURO 518), one of Nursing@Georgetown’s core courses:
Small Classes: A student-to-faculty ratio of approximately 12:1.
Recorded Sessions: Review live class sessions any time, from anywhere.
Real-Time Interaction: Live classes actively engage students with peers and faculty.
Dynamic Course Content
Throughout each week, students complete dynamic coursework in preparation for the week’s live sessions. These interactive assignments can be completed 24/7 from any connected device and feature engaging multimedia content such as highly produced videos, interactive readings, and quizzes.

While classes and coursework for Nursing@Georgetown are completed online, real-world experience plays a critical role in developing nurses who are morally reflective health care leaders and scholars. Hands-on learning is delivered in two essential ways:
Clinical Placement Experience
Throughout the program, students participate in carefully monitored clinical placement experiences working under the supervision of a designated clinical preceptor. Learn more about clinical placement.
On-Campus Intensive Learning Immersions (OCI)
Depending on their program of study, students complete one or more visits to the Georgetown University campus and NHS’s affiliate organizations to collaborate with peers and complete dynamic simulations. Learn more about OCIs.
