We are committed to preparing nursing students to meet the challenges of today’s complex health care environment, enriched by an environment of interdisciplinary teamwork. The exchanges between students in the GGHSON and the Paul L. Foster School of Medicine provide insight into the world both disciplines will have to navigate as a team.
