Students who hold a bachelor’s degree in another discipline and want to earn a master of science in nursing can enroll full-time in our MSN: Entry into Nursing Practice program. Students who already have a bachelor's degree in nursing can pursue our MSN: Advanced Nursing Practice program with specialties in advanced practice, management, and/or public health nursing. Interested in obtaining a MPH? Students can also earn their MSN/MPH through a dual degree program with the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health.
No matter what you choose, Johns Hopkins has programs in a variety of formats to meet your evolving needs.
