Throughout the past year and amid these unprecedented times, the Johns Hopkins School of Nursing has demonstrated resiliency and a steadfast commitment to education, community, diversity, equity, inclusion, and the health of our world.

The year’s highlights are many—being recognized as a Best School for Men in Nursing by the American Association for Men in Nursing, receiving the HEED Award for Excellence in Diversity, being named a 2019 National League for Nursing Center of Excellence in Nursing, and receiving a $4.3M grant to become a national center dedicated to improving the health and function of people with disabilities. These are just to name a few.

In our annual report below, you will see how our mission of excellence, leadership, advocacy, and innovation is at the forefront of everything we do to advance nursing education and research. It is no doubt the accomplishments of our faculty, staff, and students—on the front lines and behind the scenes—whose hard work, energy, character, and vision make our success a reality.
