The power of choice defines the very best of career education. If you have already earned a non-nursing bachelor's degree, you are familiar with your unique learning style, professional goals, and scheduling needs. The Johns Hopkins School of Nursing offers you two program options that can accelerate your track to nursing practice, continue your studies through a doctoral program, or provide you clinical experience as you work toward advanced practice nursing.  Meet Our Partner Institutions

As of 2014, the Johns Hopkins School of Nursing has discontinued the following program options:  Fall-Entry Accelerated Bachelors, BS to MSN, and BS to MSN with Paid Clinical Residency. Prospective students who hold a bachelor's degree and are not already a nurse can now apply to either the Summer-Entry Accelerated Bachelor's or Master’s Entry into Nursing programs.

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. 

Start Your New Adventure
