Maroon Staff

U.S. News and World Report’s 2013 Best Online Graduate Nursing Programs list has named Loyola’s online graduate nursing program among the top 10 programs in the nation for the second consecutive year. The ranking methods used in 2013 were based on more detailed data than 2012, the first year of the rankings. Loyola’s nursing program was ranked third in the area of student engagement specifically and sixth among more than 100 schools overall. “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.
