List of Accredited Nursing Schools in the District Columbia

The District of Columbia, where many top healthcare institutions are based, including large and small hospitals, clinics and surgical centers and other types of medical facilities, is not a large state in terms of territory, however, has its advantages for a nurse looking for a place to complete higher education. The high number of healthcare facilities are also a guarantee that the nursing profession will be always in demand as the population grows and experienced nurses retire. Main metropolitan areas where nurses are established in the District of Columbia are Maryland, Baltimore, Alexandria, and Fredericksburg.

Some of the local colleges and universities providing accredited nursing degrees in the District of Columbia include the University of the District of Columbia and Georgetown as well as the George Washington University. The District of Columbia Board of Nursing is the governing body in the state for the profession. To become licensed, prospective nurses must complete a degree program in nursing at an associate or bachelor level from an accredited school as well as passing a competency exam, normally NCLEX.
