The Johns Hopkins School of Nursing has been named one of the Best Schools for Men in Nursing by the American Association for Men in Nursing. It is being recognized for its history, consistency, quality, and commitment to creating an inclusive environment for men who are becoming professional nurses. The school will be formally honored at the 44th annual AAMN conference, to be held in October in Orlando, Florida.

Sarah Szanton, a professor, is one of the five 2019 recipients of a Heinz Award in the category of Human Condition. The awards were established by Teresa Heinz to honor the memory of her late husband, U.S. Sen. John Heinz, and to celebrate his accomplishments and spirit by recognizing the extraordinary contributions of individuals in the areas of greatest importance to him. Szanton, co-developer of the Community Aging in Place Advancing Better Living for Elders (CAPABLE) program, was recognized for her pioneering approach in care to help older adults continue to live independently.
