Whether we’re in Baltimore ensuring screening for cervical cancer or on the other side of the world teaching midwifery practices, our international reputation reflects the impact John Hopkins nurses, students, and faculty have had in the lives of women.
So it’s a pretty neat coincidence that on International Women’s Day we have learned that the QS World University Rankings have once again ranked the Johns Hopkins School of Nursing (JHSON) as No. 2 in the world.
QS World University Rankings utilizes data from universities around the world to rank them on peer-reviewed literature, scientific journals, books, conference proceedings, academic surveys, and data from QS global employer. The rankings include an overall university score and are then broken down by program.
From serving in WWI, to addressing policy makers in Washington on intimate partner violence, to offering economic independence and improving health through livestock exchange programs in central Africa, JHSON researchers, students, and nurses continue to leave a lasting mark on the world.
Our reach extends across South and Central America, the Caribbean, Africa, Asia, Europe, and even in our own backyard of Baltimore. We tout Returned Peace Corps Volunteers who add diversity and global experience to our student body and research and learning. One of this year’s biggest highlights (and honors) of our global impression on women’s health was hosting the 21st Biennial Congress of the International Council on Women’s Health Issues in which researchers journeyed from across the globe to present their research with one clear message: “Women’s health is the health of the world.”
