Marianne Fingerhood has been a nurse since 1985. Her career began at the bedside in cardiac critical care and continued as a staff educator. She has been a nurse practitioner in adult primary care since 1999 and began serving as clinical preceptor beginning in 2001. She began her teaching journey with pre-licensure students in 1990 and joined the faculty at the Johns Hopkins School of Nursing in 2012 teaching in the MSN NP program and finally as the track coordinator of the Adult Gerontological Primary Care NP program in 2021. In all settings, she has brought a passion for education, whether it be with patients, students, or colleagues. As a nurse practitioner in active clinical practice, she collaborates with other members of the health care team to promote excellence in prevention and management of chronic illness and patient education. Her areas of interest are safe opioid prescribing, identification and treatment of opioid use disorder, and the support and education of nurse practitioners as they transition into their roles as primary care providers. In July 2020, she received a grant from the Maryland Higher Education Commission to begin the Supporting Nursing Advanced Practice Transitions (SNAPT) Primary Care Nurse Practitioner Fellowship.
