U.S. News & World Report again ranked GW’s master of science in nursing in the top 10 for online graduate nursing, with the school coming in at number six for the second year in a row.
The school was also ranked in the new master's-level rankings of online nursing specialties. M.S.N.: Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner tied for fourth, and both M.S.N.: Family Nurse Practitioner and M.S.N.: Nursing Leadership and Management tied for fifth in their respective categories. This is the first year U.S. News has ranked online nursing specialties.
GW Nursing’s program also ranked third for best online master's in nursing programs for veterans.
“These rankings reflect the hard work and dedication of our talented faculty and staff,” Dean Pamela Jeffries said. “Being among those ranked for the first time in specialty areas speaks to our high-quality programs, exceptional faculty and excellent student outcomes,” she said.
U.S. News factors in engagement (meaning accessible collaboration with both fellow students and faculty), faculty credentials, the expert opinion of nursing academic officials, and services and technologies.
GW Nursing's success reflects investments in student services, academic technologies, faculty recruitment and infrastructure improvements. As we celebrate our 10th anniversary, we are proud to have our graduate programs recognized amongst the best in the nation.
