Admissions & Financial Aid
How to Apply
Applications are received from around the world and we value the diversity of each applicant. We are interested in you as an individual and review your application in its entirety. Hopkins Nursing seeks individuals who bring with them a spirit of inquiry, commitment, and motivation toward scholarship.
The Admissions Committee reviews each application carefully with attention given to the spirit of inquiry, commitment, and motivation toward scholarship. Complete academic records, essays, and letters of recommendation regarding character, intellectual curiosity, seriousness of purpose, and outside activities are all considered.
Transfer of credit is granted on an individual basis. The decision is based on equivalent content (for required courses), credit allotment and satisfactory completion of courses. You may petition for permission to substitute a course from another college or university by submitting a request to the Office of Admissions and Student Services along with the complete course syllabus.
Up to six credits of graduate course work taken at Johns Hopkins University or elsewhere may be accepted for transfer. Course work must have been completed within the last five years. Course work at the undergraduate level will not be considered for advanced standing credit.
International applicants and applicants who have completed courses outside of the United States must submit:
- Official course-by-course evaluation from the World Education Services (WES) or Commission on Graduates of Foreign Nursing Schools (CGFNS)
(If any academic credit was granted from an academic institution outside the United States, credits must be evaluated)
- Official Test of English as a Second Language (TOEFL) scores for international students whose native language is not English
- All international students seeking an F-1 visa are required to submit official documents in English showing proof of funding

This time of year always finds me a little misty. It’s not necessarily the holidays themselves, with some significant childhood baggage in that sleigh every year along with the presents.

"It all began on a late morning at a doctor's office. Now I was not the LPN, Medical Assistant, phlebotomist or even the Receptionist; I was the patient. Usually I would have been complaining about the temperature or the long wait time by now, but on this day, I was deep in thought.Fri, 19 Dec 2014 07:44:25 +0000http://blogs.nursing.jhu.edu/wearing-g-o-w-n-s/
