Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2014

Georgetown Nurse Anesthesia Program is very competitive. The program is taken very seriously and promotes a high standard of learning. The program has a very high attrition rate, 100% certification passing rate, and 100% job placement. The DC area has a high cost of living and the program is fairly expensive; however, you are paying for a highly reputable school and program. GU NAP is one of the only programs that offers a cadaver lab for anatomy and anesthesia lab. The nursing school is integrated with the medical school as needed to promote a high level of education.

The Georgetown Grad program which I am in, the Masters of Public Policy and Homeland Security, is a great program academically and in terms of all the great things you will learn. The courses really make you think, the professors are great, and the campus is nice. However, the courses are extremely expensive and they do not give very much financial aid, so each semester I find myself only being able to take one class at a time and relying solely on outside scholarships to fund my continuing education.

I participate in the online FNP program. I love being able to complete most of the assignments on my my own schedule and not having to commute into the city everyday. The technology is very advanced. I rely on the webcam on my computer to complete classes, this makes our online classroom feel very much like a normal live classroom.

Degree: Public Policy

There are lots of career opportunities that come to us naturally because we are Georgetown. The intensity of the quantitative workload is a lot, and useful. The people in the program are great--work hard/play hard attitude. It is a very collaborative group as well.

GUSoM has fantastic clinical training, a strong history of matching students in competitive residency programs, and an incredibly supportive faculty and alumni network. The costs are high but are worth it if GUSoM's strengths are leveraged by the student.

GPPI is a rigorous program that is very quantitatively focused. Classes are demanding, but you learn a lot. Being in DC offers a lot of opportunities that you wouldn't get in any other city. The Georgetown network is expansive and can help you get highly sought after internships and jobs. The student body is not very diverse, but is generally very accepting.
