We are ranked #1 among public institutions with Doctor of Nursing Practice programs (#3 overall) and tied for #1 among public schools with master’s degree programs (tied for #6 overall) by U.S. News and World Report. Our mission is to address the health care needs of communities in Washington and around the world through education, research, and service.  Our impact is profound — whether we are launching our graduates into a world of opportunities or confronting the greatest health challenges of our time through undaunted research and scholarship. Together, our students, faculty and staff work boundlessly to turn ideas into impact and improve the health of people and communities locally and globally.
