Nurses are at the forefront of the battle against this pandemic and preparing advanced practice nurses is essential and important work. We are honored to once again receive this distinguished recognition to be among one of the best in the country.”
Each year, U.S. News develops the rankings based on statistical surveys submitted by colleges and universities as well as data collected in a separate, peer-reputation survey. The methodology used by U.S. News to rank online graduate offerings is based on five factors, composed of multiple measures that are self-reported by institutions or gathered through a peer survey. These include engagement, faculty credentials and training, expert opinion, services & technologies, and student excellence.
