Additional opportunities for funding are available.
Fellows participate in the Community Outreach Program working in community sites in urban Baltimore. They may also work as student nurses at the Johns Hopkins Hospital as time and interests permit. Fellows at the School of Nursing will be placed in community sites that are part of the Community Outreach Program of the School of Nursing. They are student nurse interns and their roles vary depending on where they are working. They are paid for their service learning experience time. Fellows working as student nurses are placed in School of Nursing community health centers such as The Wald Community Health Nursing Center, a health center located in a low-income community; a health center in St. Bernadine's School; a health center in a domestic violence shelter; or the Isaiah Wellness Center in a senior citizen building.
Student nurse Fellows work in partnership with the community to improve health through direct clinical services, health education, and community organizing and comunity development. Fellows also participate in a course that teaches skills to transfer their Peace Corps experiences to serving the communities of Baltimore.
Students who possess a bachelor's degree in any major other than nursing are eligible to apply to the 13-month accelerated or two-year bachelor's program. Students without a bachelor's degree are also eligible for the two-year program. Students may also apply to the Direct Entry to Combined BS-MSN Program. A number of master's degrees are offered including community health and nursing or the combined, MSN/MPH degree. Other master's available include, but not limited to, primary care or acute/critical care nurse practitioner, clinical nurse specialist or health systems managment.
