Located in Baltimore Maryland, The Johns Hopkins Hospital was founded in 1889 by a man named Johns Hopkins. Fun side note, J. Hopkins was not only an entrepreneur and philanthropist, he was a lifelong abolitionist. Not long after the Johns Hopkins Hospital was opened, did a school of medicine follow. The hospital website boasts that it was one of the first hospitals to use rubber gloves during surgery, that the school of medicine was one of the first to admit women, and that they helped develop CPR.


What about nursing? You might ask, as there is a nursing school that was also founded around the same time as the school of medicine. In the 1930’s nursing students reported that they were “on duty” for 56 hours a week with only one shopping day a year. And until 1942, it was forbidden for nursing students to be married. The nursing school was closed and then at one point restarted at Johns Hopkins University where approximately 1,200 students enroll in graduate, doctorate and post doctorate programs.
