College of Nursing Clinical Nurse Leader program earns two national rankings

Two Augusta University College of Nursing programs have earned a place in national rankings for 2017 and 2018.

The Clinical Nurse Leader program was ranked 7th in the nation in the U.S. News and World Report’s listing of 2018’s Best Clinical Nurse Leader programs and 10th in the nation for affordability by College Values Online. College Values listed the CNL program as one of its top 15 Accelerated Online Master of Science in Nursing degrees of 2017, owing to both the program’s short completion time (16 months/four semesters) and its affordability.

This marks the second time in two years the CNL program—the most affordable program ranked—has been named one of U.S. News and World Report’s top 10.
