Georgetown University School of Nursing & Health Studies is a dynamic academic organization dedicated to improving the health and wellbeing of all people. Also, throughout the school’s four academic departments, there are 140 faculty members. The school has recently developed its first online degree program, which features the university’s values-based curriculum and professors’ lectures taught through streaming video and various web-based technologies. Students complete the coursework portion of the program online and have the opportunity to complete the clinical portion in or close to their home community. Additionally, the program features “face-to-face” sessions where students meet with their classmates and professors virtually and small class sizes. This program allows students to earn their MSN degree in 17-18 months as a full-time student or in 24-25 months as a part-time student.
