Neurology and neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins offers a unique, complex and intellectually challenging practice setting, where nurses stand front and center in the care of patients who come here from around the globe for new therapies and innovative technologies to treat diseases of the nervous system.

This positive-energy environment supports unrivaled professional growth, a place where autonomy and teamwork are equally valued. We share governance; we share encouragement. We gladly share our expertise with new nurse graduates, who gain confidence and skill with our unit-based, ongoing education, including our six-month Neuroscience Nurse Fellowship program that provides hands-on experience, progressive learning and the foundation to attain specialty certification.
