School of Nursing rises in latest U.S. News rankings

U.S. News & World Report analyzed 467 nursing graduate programs across the nation for the 2012 rankings, which are based on assessments provided by peer academic experts. Data for the report was collected in the fall of 2010.

Emory again ranks among the nation’s top nursing schools, according to U.S. News & World Report’s 2012 edition of “America’s Best Graduate Schools.” The school ranked No. 21—up from No. 26 in the last edition in 2007—in a tie with several other nursing schools.

Two of the school’s nursing specialties were highly ranked—pediatrics and midwifery. The school’s pediatric nurse practitioner program made its first appearance in the report at No. 11.

“Emory received a favorable ranking in pediatrics because of the high-quality teaching and scholarship that allows our students to stay at the forefront of advanced nursing practice,” says Marcene Powell MN DSW pediatric specialty program coordinator.
