Overview

Johns Hopkins University School of Nursing

Founded in 1889 as the Johns Hopkins Hospital Training School for Nurses with a program that became the national model for nursing education, the Johns Hopkins University School of Nursing was officially established as a school of the university in 1984. The school is located on the East Baltimore campus of the university in the Anne M. Pinkard building, named an Outstanding Building by American School and University.

The enrollment of the School of Nursing is relatively small, with approximately 362 undergraduate students and 321 students seeking graduate degrees, allowing for an enviable student to faculty ratio of 10 to 1. The school offers several options for pursing an undergraduate nursing degree.

A Highly-Ranked Nursing School

The Johns Hopkins University School of Nursing enjoys an excellent reputation. In 2008, "U.S. News and World Report" ranked the school second in the nation for its community/public health programs, fourth in the nation for its graduate programs, and seventh in the nation for nursing administration programs.

The School of Nursing was ranked sixth in the nation for scholarly productivity by the Chronicle of Higher Education. This ranking examines the productivity of the school's faculty who hold Ph.D. degrees, including book and journal articles published, federal grant dollars awarded, and honors and awards won.

The School of Nursing is sixth in the nation among nursing schools for National Institutes of Health funding, with approximately 7 million dollars per year.

A Variety of Ways to Earn a Baccalaureate Degree

The Johns Hopkins University School of Nursing offers students several options for earning their undergraduate degrees. The traditional option, for students seeking either their first undergraduate degree or a Bachelor of Science degree in addition to an existing undergraduate degree, is a 2-year, upper division program.

Students completing the 60 required credits may transfer into the School of Nursing from an accredited college or university. This degree track is not as time-intensive as other tracks, allowing students to pursue interests and activities outside the nursing program, including sports, student government, or even an internship or externship during the summer between the first and second years of the program.

The accelerated option is designed for students who have already earned an undergraduate degree and are seeking a Bachelor of Science with a nursing major. Students complete their degree in just 13-and-a-half months.

Students who are already registered nurses may follow the R.N. to B.S. program track. Some required prerequisite courses may be skipped if students can demonstrate competency by passing an Excelsior Challenge Exam or an exam written by the course instructor.

Peace Corps Fellows Program

The Johns Hopkins School of Nursing established the Peace Corps Fellows Program in 1991. The program, the first of its kind established in a school of nursing, is 1 of only 3 in the nation. Volunteers who have completed their work with the Peace Corps and wish to pursue a nursing degree receive financial aid or scholarships in exchange for their participation in community outreach health programs. Depending on the outreach program, students may receive a stipend for their work.

Along with their outreach service, program members must take a community outreach course which focuses on underserved communities in East Baltimore. Peace Corps Fellows students also participate in a diversity week celebration, sharing their stories of their Peace Corps experiences with students within the nursing school. Students in this program may also take advantage of special mentoring opportunities, leadership development activities, and Peace Corps Domestic programs.

Groups and Organizations for Nursing Students

In addition to the clubs, teams, and activities in which all Johns Hopkins students may participate, School of Nursing students have the opportunity to take part in clubs and organizations that are particular to their interests.

The Men in Nursing group is just one of the nursing-specific groups on campus. The group promotes the role of men in the nursing profession to the campus community as well as providing support for its members and the unique issues they encounter.

The Hopkins Marathon Team includes members of the schools of nursing, public health, and medicine. Group members promote long distance running and train together to complete a marathon.

The Maryland Association of Nursing Students gives students the opportunity to network and develop contacts, which is extremely useful as they get closer to graduation. The association also provides access to developments in legislation and education.

Groups participating in outreach and education are also available to nursing students. The Bukavu Action Team promotes awareness of the humanitarian struggles of people living in the Congo. Bienestar Baltimore works in conjunction with the Johns Hopkins schools of medicine and public health to provide health care to the Latino community in East Baltimore. Nursing Students United for Action works within the Hopkins community to promote acceptance and understanding of diversity.

Life in Baltimore

Baltimore is home to a number of colleges and universities. The East Baltimore campus that is home to the School of Nursing is undergoing a tremendous expansion, including a new science and technology park.

Baltimore itself offers cultural and entertainment opportunities for students, including the Baltimore Museum of Art, the Eubie Blake National Jazz and Cultural Center, the Baltimore Shakespeare Festival, and Baltimore Orioles baseball.

The city is just an hour from Washington, D.C., so students also have easy access to the museums and attractions of the nation's capital, as well as internship and employment opportunities with the many federal health agencies.
