Master's Entry into Nursing

Discover the people, places, and possibilities of nursing at the world-renowned Johns Hopkins University health and medical campus. Students who hold a bachelor’s degree in another discipline and want to pursue a nursing career can enroll in a full-time graduate program to receive a Master of Science in Nursing.
