Launched more than a century ago, Johns Hopkins psychiatry consistently ranks among U.S. News & World Report’s top three programs nationwide. We are leaders in caring for high-acuity patients who not only have acute and chronic mental illnesses but complex medical diagnoses as well.
Johns Hopkins psychiatry nursing fosters an environment that supports the development of clinical expertise, shared governance and peer review. Thanks to our preceptor-guided, unit-based orientation and ongoing education, both experienced and new nurses--whether freshly graduated or merely new to psychiatry--can flourish.
Our nurses practice with autonomy and are integral members of highly collaborative care teams that include physicians, occupational therapists and social workers. Our opinions, observations and assessments are critical components of treatment decisions, and we assume a central role in teaching and caring for patients and their families.
