I've been a bit surprised and unsure why there seems to be a bit of negativity here or sarcasm maybe regarding name recognition or tuition cost.  Yes, it's a unique situation regarding being the first DNP cohort, but it's still a shot to start a program and JHSON is an ambitious school of nursing.  I'm confident they would never let anyone graduate who was not a competent practitioner.  The clinical sites will offer a wide breadth of experiences.  It's not my first choice program for a few reasons and although I'm an alum I'm very much aware of the benefits and burdens of being a part of a huge institution. 

I was hoping that perhaps this discussion could be for anyone who is applying as we could support each other through the process.  I'm also happy to help anyone who needs information about living in Baltimore, or traveling here to interview in the coming months.  

Hey, did u finish your application ? The cas application is pretty annoying. Anyone has feedback ?

Yeah I finished it, and I agree that it can be a bit redundant.  I suppose the advantage being that if you are applying to multiple programs that contract with Nursing CAS, which did nothing for me.  So we'll see.  JH isn't my first choice program but I became the nurse I am today from Hopkins, so I'm going to investigate what they're offering.

I'm applying, and I think it's great JHU started a program in Baltimore as a Maryland resident. On these forums you will get a lot of skeptical people of 'new' programs that have not graduated their first class. My personal opinion is that JHU will be a strong program from the get go, as Hopkins currently employs over a 100 CRNA's. I've also met the program director Dr. Benson and he strikes me as a very kind person who is passionate about starting this program and providing a small class experience with personal attention to students. I would be over the moon to go to JHU, but I also have been offered interviews at two other schools that are coming up and my understanding is Hopkins wont be sending invites out until around december.

Yeah, I'm in the same boat @TPN1986, I'll likely have notifications of the outcomes of my two interviews mid-November and have to accept one of them if offered to me by then.

Yeah I wish I had applied to Georgetowon like you, I applied to 9 programs this cycle and I completely forgot about them. If there is a next year I'd definitely want to apply to their program.

Hi Great topic Asherah.  I’m from Florida and I’ll be driving up to Baltimore any day now. I’m a travel nurse starting in PACU if I can pass the EKG test they say I have to take on site😬. I haven’t ever had to interpret ekg’s . Any tips on that test would be appreciated. 

Good morning, I don’t have any tips on how to pass that specific exam, I no longer work at Hopkins.  I would imagine refreshing your knowledge of cardiac rhythms, heart blocks and STEMI territories would be appropriate.  You may never have had to interpret ECGs before, but it is within your scope to identify lethal cardiac arrhythmias, rhythm changes or concerns with dynamic ST changes.

This thread is regarding their Nurse Anesthesiology DNP program, so you are welcome to start a new thread in a relevant area where you will receive more input.

Hey asherah! I applied! And I'm stoked they are starting the program up. I guess they had a program back in the mid 80s but it wasn't their focus. I work at UMMC so I would love to stay in town. I'm nervous about my grades. Taking an organic chemistry over again now. Hope that doesn't look bad. I think the price is what it is. Yes I would love to not be that far behind but I do think Hopkins name hold more weight than any other nursing school would. Normally I would say name doesn't matter. But I just don't see Hopkins as being anything but beneficial. And I would be proud to say I graduated from Hopkins. Thanks for starting the tread. I'm eager to hear when they start calling for interviews. Maryland didn't fail to be a disappointment in not calling. All I hope is Hopkins is willing to look at everything that makes a good nurse and not numbers only.

$63K a year in tuition? Ouch!!! That will make it the most expensive school in the nation but John Hopkins does have a tremendous reputation.

Actually, the most expensive school is Columbia. Their entry into nursing program is about 120K for one year due to the way it's set up (20 credits per semester. Whereas JHU entry into nursing is 100K+ for two years.

Who is crazy enough to pay 100K+ a year for an undergraduate nursing degree?

@magicpandora and @CowboyMedic Hey, just wanted to keep the conversation on track for anyone who wants to talk about the Hopkins DNP Nurse Anesthesia program, as to not confuse anyone who is jumping into this conversation.

Thanks for starting this thread! 

Skirting in right before the deadline, I will be submitting this application today! I did not like using nursingcas for this one. I can definitely see the benefits of it, however, it just wasn’t useful to me for my situation. 

Looking forward to another waiting game here.
