Online Nursing Program Jumps in National Rankings

The UNC Charlotte School of Nursing’s national profile received a significant boost this month with the online graduate program’s 33-spot ascendance in the 2016 U.S. News & World Report rankings. The program jumped to 54 in these rankings, up from 87 last year.

“We are ever vigilant in our efforts to maintain relevancy in a changing health care market,” Baldwin said. She added that the School of Nursing understands that its students typically work full-time and are returning to school to enhance their knowledge base and prepare for promotions or to meet the changing needs of their organizations and those whom they serve.

The graduate online nursing program scored especially high marks on the credentials and training of faculty, registering 88 out of a possible 100 points on the evaluation. UNC Charlotte tied for the 54th spot with several other universities, including Florida State and West Virginia.
