JACKSON, Tenn. – Feb. 13, 2013 – Union University’s School of Nursing has one of the top online graduate nursing programs in the country, according to U.S.News & World Report.
In recently released rankings, the publication placed Union’s program 40th nationally, ahead of such institutions as Michigan State University, Ohio State University and Georgetown University. The rankings included the nation’s top 72 programs.
“The ranking is a testimony to the excellence-driven academics being delivered by nursing faculty from the perspective of the Christian intellectual tradition in reaching nursing students throughout the country,” said Tim Smith, dean of Union’s School of Nursing. “The opportunity to gain this ranking provides evidence that academic rigor through online nursing education can be provided while achieving the mission of the School of Nursing and Union University.”
The ranking was based on Union’s online Master of Science in Nursing graduate tracks, which include the Master of Science in Nursing Administration and Master of Science in Nursing Education. Both tracks are taught fully online.
Due to inclement weather, all Union campuses will be closed on Thursday, March 5, with all day classes canceled.
