The Accelerated 2013 class of Johns Hopkins University School of Nursing is the most ethnically diverse class in the School’s history.
Thirty-two percent (42 of 131 students) of the class represent minority ethnicity.In addition to significant ethnic diversity, the class is internationally well represented: three students are from China, and 17 students who originally came from Belarus, Brazil, China, Colombia, Ecuador, Ghana, Iran, Latvia, Mali, Nigeria, Trinidad & Tobago, Turkey, Great Britain, and the US Virgin Islands. Nationally, the class represents 28 states and the District of Columbia, with 30 students coming from Maryland, and 28 from California. Fifteen students are Peace Corps Coverdell Fellows, representing 15 different countries.
“Hopkins Nursing prides itself on embracing diversity on many levels,” noted Associate Dean for Enrollment Management and Student Affairs Nancy Davis Griffin. “Diversity is one of the core values of the School, and the Accelerated 2013 class continues to enrich the academic culture at Hopkins.”
