Case Western Reserve University’s health-related graduate and professional programs continued their prominence in this year’s U.S. News & World Report rankings, with Frances Payne Bolton School of Nursing demonstrating its lasting renown.
The overall Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) degree improved from 13th to 11th in the country, while the program’s acute gerontological care and nurse midwifery specialties held their positions at No. 7 and No. 21, respectively. Within the rankings, the school improved in areas such as undergraduate GPA for incoming MSN students, student-to-faculty ratios, research grants, peer assessment scores and more. These rankings come on the heels of U.S. News’ fall release of its inaugural Bachelor of Science in Nursing program rankings, where Case Western Reserve appears at No. 10 in the country.
“We are proud to have the outstanding efforts of our faculty, staff and students recognized as contributors to the top nursing science and education in the country,” said Carol Musil, PhD, RN (NUR '79; GRS '91, nursing), Frances Payne Bolton School of Nursing dean and the Edward J. and Louise Mellen Professor.
