January 18, 2013

The Loyola University New Orleans online graduate nursing program is ranked among the top 10 programs in the nation by U.S. News & World Report’s 2013 Best Online Graduate Nursing Programs for the second consecutive year, according to the rankings released Jan. 15.

The methods used by U.S. News in 2013 were based on more detailed data from the inaugural ratings in 2012 in order to give applicants a clearer understanding of program strengths. The Loyola online graduate nursing program includes both master’s and doctoral degree tracks.

U.S. News scored the Loyola School of Nursing program as third among top online nursing schools in the area of student engagement specifically, recognizing its outstanding student satisfaction, teacher responsiveness, graduation and retention success. Overall, Loyola’s School of Nursing ranked sixth among the more than 100 schools responding to the U.S. News data surveys.

“The recognition of the School of Nursing at Loyola University New Orleans in the U.S. News & World Report 2013 rankings results from the leadership of administration, faculty and staff in building a quality, substantive program to accelerate the formation of its students, graduates and alumni,” said Ann H. Cary, Ph.D., M.P.H., R.N., professor and director of the Loyola School of Nursing. “Providing leadership in our health care system and nursing demands an exquisite commitment to education, and our graduates are outstanding exemplars who advocate for the health of the public.”

The application deadline for the Loyola School of Nursing Post-Baccalaureate-to-DNP or Post-Masters-to-DNP online nursing programs is Feb. 15. Learn more about the program at virtual open houses held this month online.
