Me too! I submitted December 22, but I didn't take my GRE's until December 13, so the SON didn't receive them until January 6th. Oh well. When I finally got a hold of them to make sure it wouldn't delay my admission, they told me that they extended the deadline.

I hope we hear sooner than later. I was starting to get discouraged with all of the ABSN admission decisions coming out, but then I realized that their deadline had been November 1, which makes me feel a little better!

Just got my acceptance email for the ABSN program:) I'm so relieved and excited. Did anyone hear about any scholarship/financial aid information yet?

Just got my acceptance email for the ABSN program, as well! Thrilled!

Congratulations to everyone who got good news! Looks like they are still sending decisions for those waiting (I'd been freaking out for the last two weeks..).

I haven't heard anything about scholarship/financial aid. Well, other than that I need to send some updated 2014 info. I do hope we'll hear soon. I'll update if I find out an ETA when I call tomorrow.

I was just wondering -

Do any of you happen to know how many days per week we'll need to be on campus? I'm guessing it varies by semester but just curious if anyone has any info yet, maybe from past students. Trying to figure out if/how far my family will need to relocate from DC. I know two women who graduated from the program and both commuted from DC, so I'll try to get in touch with them too (will update if I get info) -- if anyone has a sense of this though I would love to know!

Also, wondering what insight any of you who may have attended a visiting day may be able to share about clinicals... wondering typically where they are. Right now I only know the general stats from the website (90% within the JHU hospital system....)

Thank you! And congrats again to everyone!

I received my acceptance into the ABSN program! I'm excited, but a little anxious. I live in Texas and I have to move all the way to Maryland in less than three months! I know we're on our own when it comes to housing, so does anyone know where students usually live?

i know that there is student apartments available near the school, but it is ridiculously expensive. i would suggest looking in the following neighborhoods:

charles village

waverly

remington

mount vernon

fells point

federal hill

the last two are a little more expensive but that's mostly cause they're also pretty touristy. guess it all depends on how much you can afford. the first four on the list are neighborhoods in which the shuttle that goes to campus either go directly though, or are very close to the shuttle route. fells point is the closest one to school on that list, and federal hill is southeast and isn't part of the shuttle route (that i know of) but the charm city circulator is a free bus that goes from there north (where you can pick up the shuttle route) or you can transfer (last time i checked) to the east-west route and take that pretty close to campus.

hope that helps!

Thank you! I looked at student apartments and those prices are ridiculous, especially since we can't work while in the program. I'm also going to see about having a roommate to help offset costs.

Hey all,

I didn't apply to JHU because of the tuition but I'm an alumna of the undergraduate institution...just wanted to assuage any worries about the safety. I'm not gonna lie things have happened--there is a crime report that goes out to affiliates (as an alumna I am still getting them lol) whenever something like a house or car break in happens. However I've been living in Baltimore for over 10 yrs and I and my friends have been fine. Lock your doors and don't leave stuff in your car. There are security guards all over the place by the med school, SON, etc and shuttles. I wouldn't let perceived safety deter you from going unless you truly know you wouldn't be able to tolerate the possibility of a break in or attempted break in. Many people at the SON, med school and Bloomberg school live in Charles Village and just take the shuttle from there to class. You can find great prices for row homes around that area and some apartments are cheap too if you look hard enough :)

Honestly, I'd just consider the tuition--I know the program is solid and very research oriented as one of my alumna friends told me she learned a lot more about new nursing studies than her work contemporaries did... she'd use research to justify why she did some things certain ways...but in the end, I think you should look at whether or not the program will truly help you get jobs and if the tuition is justified. With the new Master's, perhaps they will be a bit better with job placement as their aim with the Master's is to keep students in Baltimore to work after graduation. As was told to me by another JHU SON student. Perhaps some of the current JHU students can shed light on job prospects for Hopkins alum and how they are handling the costs.

Sorry for the ramble lol. Congrats to you all who have been accepted...it's a terrific school. I would have loved to continue my education in another Hopkins school but couldn't afford it.

Hi all,

I also received my acceptance into the ABSN program yesterday but will be declining it to attend UVA's Masters Entry Program. Hopefully this will free up a spot for somebody on the waitlist.

For anybody who hasn't heard anything back yet, I understand your worry and disappointment. Last year I was 68 out of 70 on the waitlist for the only school I applied to (UCLA), and it was devastating. Let me emphasize: devastating. This cycle, after a year's more experience (CNA licensure and CNA job, over one year hospice and hospital volunteering, and a second job as an activities assistant in a nursing home), I seem to have my pick of schools. The work also gave me much more substance for my essays. It gets better and if you are waitlisted this year, it is NOT the end. I promise!

I know somebody wonderful will take my place in this year's class!

The FQHC I work at in Baltimore has 2 NPs, 2 BSNs, and 1 MSN/MPH from the SON and I'm acquainted with 2 other alums who work at JHH. I think there is preferential hiring for Hopkins and UMD nurses in Baltimore. So many students have clinicals and practicums in the JH and UM systems that they're bound to build good networks and hospitals can be confident in the quality of their educations. If you want to work in Baltimore you can't go wrong with Hopkins or UMD.

As a general plug for Baltimore: it's an amazing city to be in if you're interested in community health and there is plenty going on. Google WTMD First Thursdays, 4 Hours of Funk, the Emporiyum, Union Craft Brewing, or The Walters. It's not like The Wire for the majority of people (but definitely watch The Wire because it's amazing and does represent the problems some residents face.) Like aspiringnursedd said, if you take the same reasonable precautions that you'd take in any city you'll be fine. I've been here 2 1/2 years without incident.
