School of Nursing ranks No. 1 nationally in NIH funding

The Johns Hopkins University School of Nursing is ranked No. 1 among schools of nursing for total National Institutes of Health funding, the school announced yesterday.

The School of Nursing brought in nearly $8.6 million in NIH grants for fiscal year 2012, which ended in November. The school ranked fourth nationally for NIH funding in the prior fiscal year.

"We're proud and excited to achieve this standing," Dean Martha Hill said. "But the best news here is what this says about our research, our researchers, and the focus on excellence in all that we do."

NIH-funded work at the School of Nursing includes research pertaining to cardiovascular disease, aging, and violence prevention.
