The Conway School of Nursing was recognized today by U.S. News and World Report as a U.S. News Best Online Program. The school’s online graduate nursing program was ranked #5 on a list of 194 nursing programs across the country, thanks in part to its high scores in faculty credentials and training, student engagement, and student excellence. CatholicU was also named to the Princeton Review ranking as one of the 2021 Top Online Nursing Programs.

“The Conway School of Nursing distinguishes itself by having an outstanding faculty who go the extra mile to support student learning,” said Patricia McMullen, dean and professor of nursing. “Our intentionally small class sections allow faculty to collaborate closely with students to achieve fantastic patient outcomes.”

This ranking marks a significant jump from 2020, when the online program was listed at #11. Catholic University is also currently ranked #36 in the U.S. News and World Report list of 2021 Best Graduate Schools for Nursing and #14 on a list of the Best Online Family Nurse Practitioner Masters Programs.
