The School of Nursing at Catholic University is built on the dual desires to serve and to heal. Strengthened by a rich heritage of Catholic teachings and Christian values, our diverse student body is afforded such perks as access to the Spanish for Healthcare Program, an immersive clinical experience through which students provide care to Spanish-speaking families. Here at the School of Nursing, our top priority is educating expert clinicians and fostering innovative nurse-scientists. With a history that has seen our students become leaders and experts in their fields, we aspire to continue that trend with the next generation of nursing hopefuls.
Established in 1935, our academic programs have long provided outstanding nursing education that clearly emphasizes the role of ethics, values, and spirituality in health care.
The School of Nursing offers undergraduate, graduate master's, and D.N.P. and Ph.D. programs. Students in the nursing programs gain clinical experience in 100 of the Washington Metropolitan area's premier health care facilities, often with alumni preceptors. Our research-intensive doctoral program is located within easy access of premier research and health facilities, including the National Institutes of Health and the Institute of Medicine.
Our academic programs consistently receive national recognition for excellence attesting to the strength of our programs and faculty. Our alumni hold prominent positions in nursing practice, education, and research, and have made significant contributions to national and international health care.
