Hopkins Nursing Launches Alumni Survey


News Release index

Posted: 7/26/2007

The Johns Hopkins University School of Nursing (JHUSON) this month launched a survey of the school’s 5,000+ alumni to gather factual information about the education, employment, job satisfaction, and altruistic attitudes of Hopkins nurses. 

The five-page survey was launched in an effort to better understand the experience of Hopkins nurses: whether they obtain further education, what types of nursing positions they hold, income earned, hours worked, reason for becoming a nurse, and more.  With questions based on the National Sample Survey of Registered Nurses (NSSRN), the Hopkins survey’s results may be compared to the national average, giving a glimpse into what makes Hopkins nurses unique among their peers.

The data gathered will illustrate the value of a JHUSON education, what prospective students might expect from a Hopkins nursing education, and what distinguishes Hopkins nursing alumni.  The results will be invaluable to the advancement of the school’s strategic plan, says JHUSON Dean and alumna Martha N. Hill, PhD, RN, FAAN.

Alumni may fill out and return the survey which arrived in mailboxes in early July, or they may opt to complete the survey online at www.son.jhmi.edu/alumsurvey.  Results will be published in a future issue of Johns Hopkins Nursing.
