nursing schoolVictory Media, a media entity used by military personnel transitioning into civilian life, has named Johns Hopkins University School of Nursing (JHUSON) to the coveted Military Friendly Schools list.

The 2013 Military Friendly Schools list honors the top 15 percent of colleges, universities and trade schools that are doing the most to embrace America’s military service members, veterans, and spouses as students and ensure their success on campus.

“The Johns Hopkins University School of Nursing has a long and rich history of educating those who have served in the military,” said Nancy Griffin, JHUSON Associate Dean for Enrollment Management & Student Affairs. “We welcome all who embody our core value of excellence, and all who desire to attend the very best nursing program in the country. We are honored... to have veterans and active servicemen and women as our graduates.”

“Inclusion on the 2013 list of Military Friendly Schools shows JHUSON’s commitment to providing a supportive environment for military students,” said Sean Collins, Director for G.I. Jobs and Vice President at Victory Media. “As interest in education grows we’re thrilled to provide the military community with transparent, world-class resources to assist in their search for schools,” said Sean Collins.

The Military Friendly Schools media and website feature the list, interactive tools, and search functionality to help military students find the best school to suit their unique needs and preferences. The 1,739 colleges, universities and trade schools on this year’s list exhibit leading practices in the recruitment and retention of students with military experience.

Now in its fourth year, the 2013 list of Military Friendly Schools was compiled through extensive research and a data-driven survey of more than 12,000 VA-approved schools nationwide. The survey tabulation process, methodology and weightings that comprise the 2013 list were independently verified by Ernst and Young LLP.
