IU School of Nursing ranks among top 5 nationally in U.S. News and World online programs

U.S. News & World Report announced its 2020 Best Online Programs rankings, the ninth edition of these rankings. The Master’s program at IU School of Nursing was ranked among the top offerings nationwide. The online nursing education track of the Master’s program ranked #4, and IU School of Nursing’s Online Master’s Program ranked #31. This year more than 1,600 programs were ranked — up from 1,545 last year and 677 in the first edition in 2012.

“These rankings continue to demonstrate our commitment to deliver high-quality, world-class education programs to our online learners,” said Dr. Robin Newhouse, dean of the IU School of Nursing. “We are honored to once again receive the distinguished recognition to be among one of the best in the country.”

Each year, U.S. News develops the rankings based on statistical surveys submitted by colleges and universities as well as data collected in a separate, peer-reputation survey. The methodology used by U.S. News to rank online undergraduate offerings is based on four factors, composed of multiple measures that are self-reported by institutions or gathered through a peer survey.

“We pride ourselves on providing our students quality and diversity programs that empower them as they advance their nursing careers,” said Dr. Janet S. Fulton, IU School of Nursing’s Associate Dean for Graduate Programs and Professor. “This validates our work in providing robust learning experiences across the breadth of our undergraduate and graduate programs.”
