The Conway School of Nursing was ranked #27 on the U.S. News and World Report’s list of the 220 Best Graduate Schools for Nursing, marking a significant jump from last year’s ranking of #36.

This follows news from January, when the school’s online graduate nursing program was ranked #5 on a list of 194 nursing programs across the country, thanks to its high scores in faculty credentials and training, student engagement, and student excellence. CatholicU was also named to the Princeton Review 2021 ranking of the 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, in January. “Our intentionally small class sections allow faculty to collaborate closely with students to achieve fantastic patient outcomes.”

Additional graduate programs that were recognized by the U.S. News and World Report include the Columbus School of Law and the departments of Politics, English, History, and Library and Information Science
