The Duquesne University School of Nursing has been ranked No. 6 in the nation among the Best Online Graduate Nursing Programs by U.S. News and World Report. In addition, the University overall was ranked No. 93 of 210 schools ranked in the Best Online Bachelor’s Degree programs category.
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.
“I am pleased that the School of Nursing continues to be a leader in online nursing education as we were an early adopter of online education and offered the world’s first online graduate nursing program in 1997,” added Glasgow. “We constantly strive to offer diverse and meaningful pedagogies to increase student engagement.”
The School of Nursing is preparing to launch a new online RN-BSN Program in August.
The newly released rankings mark a jump for Duquesne, which was ranked No. 125 last year among the Best Online Bachelor’s programs. U.S. News considered student engagement, faculty credentials and training, peer reputation and student services and technology as factors for this category.
