Jan. 10, 2017

UNLV School of Nursing earned a spot among the country’s top online graduate nursing programs according to the 2017 U.S. News & World Report of best online graduate degree programs—this is the fourth consecutive year the school has earned the recognition.

The school’s Masters of Science in Nursing program ranked 20th out of 149 surveyed programs that offer curriculums entirely online. The UNLV School of Nursing has appeared among the list’s top 15 percent since 2014.

U.S. News ranked online nursing programs in five distinct areas: student engagement, faculty credentials and training, peer reputation, student services and technology, and admissions selectivity.

The school’s master’s program offers two tracks—family nurse practitioner and nurse educator—that prepare advanced clinicians and educators in nursing to serve the health needs of the community and educate future nursing care providers.

The UNLV School of Nursing offers all of its graduate level courses online, including a Doctor of Nursing Practice degree and a PhD in Nursing.
