Nursing School Rankings for 2017
U.S. News surveyed 519 accredited nursing schools with master’s or doctoral programs. Of those, 259 responded to the statistical survey and provided enough data to be included in the rankings of nursing master’s programs. In addition, 149 schools qualified through their statistical survey to be included in a new ranking of Doctor of Nursing Practice programs. Both the master’s and DNP rankings are based on a weighted average of 14 indicators.
U.S. News Surveys
Each year, U.S. News & World Report ranks professional school programs in nursing, medicine, business, education, engineering, and law. The rankings in these six areas are based on two types of data: expert opinions about program excellence and statistical indicators that measure the quality of a school’s faculty, research and students. The data come from statistical surveys sent to administrators at more than 1,900 graduate programs and from reputation surveys sent to more than 18,400 academics and professionals in the disciplines. The surveys were conducted during the fall of 2015 and in early 2016.
