Welcome School of Nursing #Hoyas2026


We welcome you as part of the Georgetown University Class of 2026! We are excited that you will be a student at one of our two new schools launching on July 1: the School of Nursing.

The nursing school builds on a 120-year tradition of educational excellence at the professional, advanced practice, and doctoral levels, while raising the school’s profile in research and scholarship. As the nation’s largest health care profession, nursing represents a fundamental core of the workforce. Education at the School of Nursing is grounded in cura personalis — the care and development of the whole person — by educating students for a meaningful life, challenging them intensively, but also supporting them in their learning. The School of Nursing is led by Roberta Waite, EdD, PMHCNS, RN, MSN, ANEF, FAAN, a transformational nurse leader. Volume up … Meet Dean Waite.

Where Our Grads Go

A common question we receive from admitted students is where some of our graduates go after Georgetown. Our school has a long history of graduating students who work in settings including community-based and faith-based organizations, the federal government, higher education, hospitals and health systems, and the military. Students and graduates have also earned prestigious Fulbright, Rhodes, and Udall scholarships.
