Launched in the spring of 2003, Johns Hopkins Nursing is now celebrating its fifth anniversary of publication. In just a few short years, the publication has grown in scope, length, and distribution and has become known as a leader in nursing education publication.
Launch: The inaugural issue integrates news from the alumni association-previously published as the newsletter Vigilando-and news from the school into one 44-page issue of Johns Hopkins Nursing. The magazine, like its preceding newsletter, is published twice per year.
Advertising: JHN begins accepting external adver-tising, thereby becoming a resource for nursing jobs, educational programs, and student housing.
Expansion: A special section is added for graduates of the Church Home and Hospital School of Nursing, who have joined the Johns Hopkins Nurses’ Alumni Association. JHN expands to a 56-page publica-tion and is now pub-lished three times per year.
Award-Winning: JHN receives a platinum MarCom Creative Award in the category of Educational Institution Magazine from the Association of Marketing & Communication Professionals.
Going Green: JHN is now published on 30 percent recycled paper that is certified by the Sustainable Forestry Initiative and the Forest Stewardship Council.
