The 2014 Best Online Education Program Rankings, released today by U.S. News, marks a move up for the School of Nursing, which was ranked No. 7 in 2013.
“The latest U.S. News best online program ranking is a credit to the strength of our faculty and students, who make the Duquesne University School of Nursing one of the most innovative nursing schools in the country,” said Dr. Mary Ellen Glasgow, dean and professor of nursing.
Student engagement, faculty credentials and training, student services and technology, peer reputation and admissions selectivity were the factors considered by U.S. News for the Best Online Graduate Nursing Programs rankings.

The School of Nursing is preparing to launch a new online RN-BSN Program in August.
