JHU School of Nursing partners with Teach for America

New options for those who want to work with urban populations in underserved regions are now available through a Johns Hopkins School of Nursing partnership with Teach for America.

As the first nursing school to forge such a relationship with the nationally recognized program, Johns Hopkins offers waived application fees and special admissions consideration to Teach for America corps members and alumni, plus two-year deferrals to students admitted to the school who choose to join Teach for America in the year that his/her academic studies commence. Students can be admitted to either the second-degree accelerated program or the two-year baccalaureate traditional option. In addition, and depending on the availability of funds, the school will provide at least one half-tuition scholarship for $12,500 each year to students enrolled in the program.
