The MSN (Entry into Nursing) Program prepares students to become Master’s level nurse generalists with advanced knowledge and skills to deliver and direct care to patients with complex conditions on interprofessional teams in a hospital, primary care, or community health setting.
This full-time, five-term program is delivered on-site and prepares students to take the nursing licensure exam (NCLEX) and be licensed as an RN upon graduation. The program emphasizes leadership, global impact, quality and safety, and evidence-based interprofessional education. Students learn from a framework that integrates knowledge from the physical sciences, the humanities, public health, genetics, and organizational sciences into nursing practice.
Graduates will be qualified to enter the nursing workforce immediately or continue their studies toward an advanced practice nursing specialty or doctoral degree.
Students must complete the program within 5 years.
The Johns Hopkins University School of Nursing has an innovative educational curriculum for community-based public health nursing practice. The goals of the project are to increase education in public health nursing practice and to provide a community-based learning experience for students while improving both the delivery of health services to and the health status of the urban Baltimore community. The ultimate objective is to improve health in similar urban communities by increasing the number of nursing graduates who are proactive in urban public health. The School of Nursing operates clinics that are staffed by faculty and students in a transitional housing program, a low-income housing project, a domestic violence shelter, and a Baltimore city K-8 school.
Opportunities for special study credits with selected faculty are available. These offerings provide structured learning experiences while working directly in the community. Whenever feasible, students will be assigned to multidisciplinary teams to enrich the learning experience. Stipends are available for selected students who engage in special community service projects.
Nursing students interested in expanding upon or developing their interest in community-based public health may identify themselves upon matriculation or at any time during their course of study.
This course focuses on developing initial competence in the Birth Companion role based on the Doula model. The Doula model emphasizes physical, emotional, and informational support to the mother before, during, and after childbirth.
Maternal and child health nursing and community health nursing theories and practices are introduced. Group processing of client and birth companion interactions and care management will be held biweekly. Seminars with experts in the field including lactation consultants, social workers, community health educators, and child birth educators will be included.
