As health care systems work overtime under the strain of the COVID-19 pandemic, reports show there are not enough nurses to meet the demands of the health care crisis.
Augusta University’s College of Nursing is working to fill that gap by producing high-quality nurses, and their efforts have landed them in the top 150 of U.S. News & World Report’s 2021 best nursing schools.
“Nurses are needed more than ever now, and these rankings reflect a growing awareness of the College of Nursing’s excellence in advanced nursing education,” said Dr. Tanya Sudia, dean of the College of Nursing. “We will continue bringing in world-class faculty while investing in research, technologies, partnerships, innovative degree programs, and of course, new cohorts of bright and motivated students.”
U.S. News and World Report based their ranking on a number of factors, including student engagement, faculty credentials and training, student services and technology, peer reputation, and admissions selectivity.
