New Johns Hopkins program prepares nurses for policy engagement

Editor's Note

The Johns Hopkins School of Nursing (JHSON) on October 12 announced that it has created a new Policy Honors Program for nursing students to gain experience and foundational skills in policy analysis and advocacy.

The two-semester program will include discussion-based seminars, faculty mentoring sessions, a policy project, and a final presentation. Assignments will help students influence local, state, federal, and global policy issues.

The program is part of a bold vision to reshape nursing and influence healthcare for the next century, JHSON Dean Sarah Szanton, PhD, RN, FAAN, says.

To enter the program, students will have completed their first semester of the Master of Science in Nursing Entry into Nursing Program and submitted their applications by October 31, 2022.
