Quote from SFRN
Well as a Hopkins nurse I am BIASED! But I say go to Johns Hopkins. I graduated in 2005 and had a GREAT experience. I lived in Charles Village area and although I left Baltimore for my native California, there are days I actually miss Baltimore--cheap housing, adorable row houses, sigh.....Good luck in whatever you do, But I can guarantee you will get a GREAT, solid education at Hopkins.
PM if you have any specific questions!
SFRN, I can't figure out how to PM you. Sad. Anyway, I was hoping you could elaborate on your experiences at JHU. I have been accepted to the accelerated class starting this June, and I plan on attending. However, with financial aid awards having been recently released and the realization of how expensive this endeavor will be, I'm kind of getting cold feet! I know Hopkins is one of the best schools I could attend, and it's an honor having been offered the opportunity. I also feel like Hopkins' international focus is a really good fit for me, and I think going there could really expand career opportunities for me in terms of working in global health later on.
All in all, did you find it to be worth the cost? Were you satisfied with the job opportunities you found as a new grad? How much did Hopkins help you with your job search
? Was there anything about your experience that you were dissatisfied with? Also, slightly unrelated, but I'm interested to know if you participated in the study abroad option for clinicals?
Any info/advice you want to share would be appreciated.
Oh also, if you don't mind my asking, have you felt comfortable paying off your loans on your salary as a new nurse?
