Online graduate nursing program ranked 31st nationally

Georgia Regents University’s online graduate nursing programs are among the top in the nation, according to a new ranking by U.S. News and World Report.

The GRU College of Nursing ranks 31st for Best Online Graduate Nursing Programs, up from 75th last year, according to new rankings released Wednesday by U.S. News and World Report.

“The sharp rise in rankings reflects a growing awareness of GRU excellence in online graduate nursing education,” said Dr. Lucy N. Marion, Dean of the Georgia Regents University College of Nursing. “We’ve entered our eighth decade as a college with a focus on investments in the future, including a new generation of faculty, increased partnerships, new technologies, and joint degree programs.”

The College of Nursing’s online graduate programs appeared for the first time in national rankings last January. U.S. News and World Report based the rankings on a number of factors including student engagement, faculty credentials and training, student services and technology, peer reputation, and admissions selectivity.

“The College of Nursing is committed to quality distance education to nurses wherever they are,” Marion said. “We’re proud of the faculty and staff associates who work together to achieve this new ranking.”

Five other Georgia schools, including Georgia College & State University, University of West Georgia, Clayton State University, Kennesaw State University, and Georgia Southern University were also ranked.
