Saint Xavier University (SXU) is proud to announce that the Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) program was included on the 2019 edition U.S. News & World Report “Best Graduate Schools” list. SXU’s MSN program was placed in the top half of the rankings!
“The fact that many of our nursing programs are continuously ranked among the best in the nation is a testament to our level of expertise and academic excellence,” School of Nursing Interim Dean Peg Gallagher, Ed.D., RN, CNE.
The 2019 edition of the rankings rates programs in business, law, medicine, nursing, engineering and education, including specialties in each area, which are based on two types of data: expert opinions about program excellence and statistical indicators that measure the quality of a school’s faculty, research and students. The ranking methodology varies by discipline, taking into account factors that may include test scores of entering students, the job placement rates and starting salaries of recent graduates, academic quality ratings by officials at peer institutions and opinions of hiring managers.
“This ranking is a reflection of our ongoing commitment to exceptional health professions education and research,” said Director of Online MSN Programs and Associate Professor Margaret Reneau, Ph.D., R.N. “We attract some of the brightest, most dedicated students because our training is both rooted in science and committed to fulfill the promise of a better future for our patients, which is why SXU’s Online MSN Program has been ranked No. 1.”
SXU’s School of Nursing is one of only 47 nursing programs across the country that are designated a Center of Excellence by the National League for Nursing.
