Nursing Accolades

Nursing Professionals magazine, a new biannual publication for nursing students and nursing professionals, has named The Johns Hopkins Hospital one of this year’s “Top 100 Hospitals to Work For.” In a congratulatory letter, the publisher cited Hopkins as a leader in the health care industry, “upholding the importance of healthy living to patients, creating innovative programs and maintaining quality staff.” Early in 2008, the magazine surveyed 25,000 randomly selected hospital nurses throughout the country about their job satisfaction. Among the questions they asked: How well does your hospital manage personal training and development? Is your hospital a family-friendly employer? Does your hospital promote equality and diversity in your nursing workforce? With a circulation of 55,000, the inaugural issue will be available at more than 1,000 nursing schools.

Language Mastery

Walk through any Johns Hopkins campus and you’re likely to hear employees converse in several languages. For many of these folks, fluency in English is a struggle. Enter ESL at JHU, the English as Second Language program for Hopkins faculty, staff, students and their families who want to sharpen their English for personal and professional reasons. Registration for spring evening classes at the Homewood campus is now under way. New this spring is Fluency Through Film, an advanced conversation class that explores American culture through movies and television. Other courses include Intermediate Oral Communication and Academic and Professional Writing. Info and registration: ltc.jhu.edu/esl; 410-516-5431; or esl@jhu.edu.

Kosher Subway

In response to more demand for kosher food choices, the Subway in Hopkins Hospital’s Cobblestone Café now offers a variety of glatt kosher salads and subs available Monday through Friday, 10:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Info: 410-955-5575.
