Welcome to the SON
Excellence. Community. Diversity. These are more than words at the Johns Hopkins School of Nursing. They are part of the blood that flows through the heart of the school, its students, faculty, and staff. As the top-ranked graduate nursing program in the nation—and #2 globally—we take our positions as leaders and our roles as global citizens seriously. Our faculty and students come from different backgrounds, locations, and cultures to bring their own experiences into their learning and practice. Students are offered an interprofessional experience that goes unmatched—our campus was built to foster collaboration and the easy sharing of ideas among nurses, doctors, and researchers.
Strong roots within our home neighborhood of East Baltimore offer students as well as experienced nurses a chance to improve the everyday lives of its residents, to grow as caregivers, and to carry lessons learned here out to the global health community. We are building a student body and faculty that reflect the diversity of our East Baltimore community and nation and practice a cultural competence that translates across the world.
"Bring into the school the best possible students, provide for them the best possible instruction, instill into them a realization of their responsibilities, send them out in the profession." - Elsie M. Lawler
The quote above is etched into the exterior of the School of Nursing as a reminder that our administration, faculty, and staff continue to be committed to this philosophy.
