Our Areas of Excellence meet the needs of our local community and the demands of global health through community engagement, scientific investigation, education, and policy initiatives.
These core areas enrich the educational experience, taking students out of the classroom, onto hospital units, and into the lab. Students are in direct contact with the community, working with faculty and experts who are forging national policy in real time.
Students are privy to exceptional opportunities—shadowing faculty through interships, fellowships, and in clinicals—allowing them to participate in groundbreaking work even as they study. Hopkins nurses are mentored throughout their studies and long after they pass the NCLEX.
Students frequently tell us that their Hopkins Nursing journey is a process of discovery. Slowly, over the course of their nursing education, a career focus reveals itself and they are aligned with their purpose.
Our faculty-led, interdisciplinary centers strengthen a focused area of scholarship in health care by providing an environment to expand the knowledge base, integrate specific education and practice initiatives, and mentor new scholars.
