The University of Washington’s School of Nursing is tied for second in the country for its undergraduate programs, according to a new ranking from US News & World Report.
UW’s Bachelor of Science in Nursing program shared second place with Duke University, behind the top university in Pennsylvania. The rankings for undergraduate nursing programs are new this year and are based on the grades of the deans and senior professors of the programs that offer the baccalaureate in nursing.
“This is a huge achievement,” said Azita Emami, executive dean of the UW School of Nursing. “I am grateful for the dedication of our faculty, students and staff. The decision to include nursing in undergraduate rankings for the first time reflects the urgent call for more nurses and the need for more quality nursing programs in this country, and I am proud of the role of the UW School of Nursing to answer this call.
