Welcome to The Catholic University of America Conway School of Nursing. Our motto is “the skills to succeed and the values to guide” and that philosophy permeates all of our endeavors. Our community of students, faculty, staff, and alumni are dedicated to improving the health outcomes of those they serve.

We have a diverse faculty composed of clinical experts, educators, and researchers who are actively engaged in direct care, evidence-based practice projects, research, and professional organizations that promote positive health outcomes. Our faculty are dedicated to providing students with a rigorous education that prepares them to meet today’s health care challenges.

Our location in the Washington, D.C., metropolitan area has led to the development of excellent partnerships, where students are provided with cutting-edge clinical instruction as well as outstanding clinical research and health policy opportunities.

Of late, we have expanded our relationships with other universities throughout the world and we now have a study abroad exchange with the Australian Catholic University and summer partnerships with the Catholic University of Korea and several universities in Japan.

As a result of a significant donation from Bill and Joanne Conway as well as tremendous contributions from a second donor and the University, we are embarking on construction of a new building that will house our Conway School of Nursing. Come see how we can expand your horizons, both spiritually and intellectually, while simultaneously offering you a quality education through which you can serve your community, state, nation, and the world. Welcome to the Conway School of Nursing at The Catholic University of America!
