UW School of Nursing Ranked #1

According to US News and World Report, you won’t find a better public school that offers a Doctor of Nursing Practice Degree.

In its recently released ranking of graduate and professional schools across the country, the University of Washington School of Nursing came in first among public schools that offer a Doctor of Nursing Practice Degree. Additionally, our School was ranked #4 among public schools that offer a Master’s degree.

“While top rankings are significant because they validate the good work that we do,” said Executive Dean Azita Emami, “our School is committed to the most important measure of success: the ability to produce diverse graduates who can advance nursing science and leadership by providing expert, evidence-based, culturally congruent care to address health disparities in Seattle and around the world.”

Several specialty tracks received recognition as being the best in the country, including a #1 ranking for a public school with a family nurse practitioner track; a #1 ranking for a public school with an adult gerontology/primary care track; and a tie for #3 among public schools with a psychiatric/mental health practitioner track.

This was the first year that the School submitted data from all three campuses. The ranking for public schools that offer a Master’s degree is specific to the Bothell and Tacoma campuses.
