Baltimore ABSN Site

Baltimore earned the moniker “Charm City” in 1975 because many considered it a hidden gem. Decades later, it still lives up to its name, quietly developing a distinguished reputation for excellence in industry and medicine to boot.

Today, it is home to approximately 2.7 million people, the 20th largest metro area in the United States, and the key economic center in Maryland, led by tourism, the high-tech and biotech industries and, most importantly for those interested in starting a nursing career here, medicine.
