VUSN named among the Best Graduate Schools
Once again Vanderbilt University School of Nursing has been named among the “Best Graduate Schools” in the country by U.S. News and World Report magazine.
We are delighted to report that the School of Nursing Doctorate of Nursing Practice Program is ranked No. 10 for the 2017 year. This is the first time that US News and World Report ranked DNP programs. The MSN program continues to be among the top Schools of Nursing. For the 2017 ranking, the MSN program was ranked No. 13, tied with the University of Pittsburgh. To determine scores, U.S. News & World Report uses a ranking methodology for Schools of Nursing, which arrives at a weighted average across eight indicators. Being ranked #10 and #13 for the DNP and MSN program is particularly noteworthy as there are over 200 DNP programs and over 500 MSN programs in the country.
