Associate Dean's Welcome

Dr Damas

Built on the legacy of the Freedmen’s Hospital Training School for Nurses in Washington, DC (November 15, 1894) the Howard University School of Nursing was founded in April 23, 1968. The School of Nursing was elevated to the College of Nursing in 1975 and joined the other academic health professional colleges within the university.

The Division of Nursing Undergraduate Program offers multiple tracks to fulfilling the Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree -- BasicLPN to BSN, and RN to BSN. The Graduate Program offers a Master of Science in Nursing degree as a Family Nurse Practitioner and the Nurse Educator. Both graduate tracks are available to a student who holds a Master of Science in Nursing degree as a Post-Master’s Certificate.

The Division of Nursing faculty is committed to educating future nursing leaders for nursing practice, leadership and service to meet the growing demands of the community and the world. The Howard University family with its diverse range of academic disciplines provides a wonderful environment for pursuing your nursing studies.

I welcome you to explore our website and to reach out to us for more information about our programs. We are a diverse community of academicians striving for better healthcare for all. I look forward to seeing you at Howard and to sharing our legacy with you.
