Johns Hopkins Nursing Welcomes First Cohort of BS To MSN Students

Yesterday, Johnathan Eichberger of The JHU Gazette detailed how the first group of students will begin the Johns Hopkins University's Accelerated BS to MSN with Paid Residency program. Mr. Eichberger explained that the program takes approximately 34 months and includes a one year accelerated baccalaureate program in which students may take up 12 graduate courses in addition to their undergraduate class, a one year residency and then continue on with part-time graduate courses while continuing their full-time work.

This program coincides with the recommendations made by the IOM's Initiative on the Future of Nursing committee's report: "The Future of Nursing: Leading Change, Advancing Health." The report made explicit recommendations addressing the need for nurses to continue their education, obtain higher level degrees as well as introducing nurse residency programs; all of which JHU has accomplished with the establishment of this program.
