A Day For New Nurses

On December 14, new nurses at the master’s and doctoral levels emerged ready to change the face of health care.

Grads were cheered on by Dr. David B. Hellman of Johns Hopkins Hospital (who Dean Patricia Davidson described as a man who “is determined to recognize the value of the whole health care team and of patients as people, not numbers on a chart”) and motivated by student speaker, MSN candidate Basia Atkinson-Barr.


Dr. David B. Hellman: “Great care is personal.”


Basia Atkinson-Barr: “The road before us is unpaved. One day they will say, ‘They came from the Johns Hopkins School of Nursing. Isn’t it amazing how they changed the world.”


As you transition into your role as alumni, remember past alumni president David Yaffe’s words: “You will always be a JHU grad. Your purpose is to make the world a better place.”
