JHSAP (Johns Hopkins Student Assistance Program)
The Johns Hopkins Student Assistance Program (JHSAP) provides suitable resources to assist students with the pressures and difficulties they may encounter during their academic careers. JHSAP is a life-management resource that helps students to identify and manage challenging issues in healthy ways. All registered School of Nursing students of Johns Hopkins University and their immediate family members may use JHSAP services.
Student Health Insurance
All students in degree and certificate programs are required to have health insurance coverage.
School of Nursing students may purchase insurance through the Johns Hopkins University Student Health Plan (SHP) or obtain their own comparable health insurance coverage. Without proof of comparable coverage, students are required to enroll Johns Hopkins University Student Health Plan (SHP) administered by EHP. Comparable coverage must include comprehensive coverage and allow the student to use the insurance in the State of Maryland. Travel and temporary short-term insurance plans are not acceptable alternatives.
Selecting an appropriate insurance plan for your individual needs can be a complex decision. Please consider your individual and family needs accordingly. Again, the EHP Student Health Plan is only one of many choices in the market.
