Programs are designed to fit the needs of a diverse student population. Whether you are looking to begin or advance your nursing career at the MSN, DNP, or PhD level, the school offers a variety of opportunities.  

The Office of Admissions is here to serve as your resource for learning more about programs offered and to assist with the application process. We welcome the opportunity to work with you and encourage you to visit us, communicate with our staff, faculty, and students and explore our diverse community.


Getting Started

The Johns Hopkins School of Nursing seeks individuals with a spirit of inquiry, commitment, and motivation toward scholarship and leadership in the nursing profession. The Admissions Committee is interested in each individual and reviews holistically academic records, health care, other professional and community experience, test scores and interviews (for some programs), recommendations and written expressions of goals and interests. Intellectual interests and accomplishments are of importance in the admissions decision, and scholastic records are carefully examined. Clarity of goals, character, and other achievements are also important. The admission process, while considering grade-point average and, for some programs, standardized test scores, also takes into consideration professional experience and distinctive characteristics of individual learners.
