Two School of Nursing Programs Rank in Top 60 Graduate Programs According to US News & World Report


The College of Health and Human Services is pleased to announce that two School of Nursing graduate programs are ranked within the top 60 of their discipline, as recognized in the most recent U.S. News & World Report rankings of graduate programs.

At #37, Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) continues to rank within the top 50 and the Doctorate of Nursing Practice (DNP) program ranks just outside the top 50 in its field at #52.

“Nurses play an increasingly important role in public and population health and the success of our nursing programs is a testament to the interdisciplinary nature of the experience we provide all our students – from virtual and augmented reality to working directly with underrepresented populations. Our communities need strong nurse leaders now more than ever,” said Cheryl Oetjen, interim Director of the School of Nursing.

Among public institutions, Mason’s MSN program ranks #23 and the DNP ranks #38. Learn more about all of Mason’s nursing programs.
