The Johns Hopkins Hospital and the nursing training program both opened in 1889. Founders M. Adelaide Nutting, Isabel Hampton Robb, and Lavinia Dock established what would become the national model for nursing education. In 1983, after turning out generations of exceptional nurses, the School of Nursing was established as the eighth division of the Johns Hopkins University--and opened its doors to students in 1984.
Today, the Johns Hopkins University School of Nursing is a global leader in nursing research, education, and scholarship. The School and its baccalaureate, master's, PhD, and DNP programs are recognized for excellence in educating nurses who set the highest standards for patient care and become innovative national and international leaders.
