The MUSC College of Nursing’s online graduate nursing program was recently ranked number one in the nation by U.S. News & World Report. Ninety six nursing programs were scored on factors such as graduation rates, academic and career support services offered, and admissions selectivity. MUSC earned an overall score of 100. College of Nursing Dean Gail Stuart, PhD, says the achievement “is a reflection of the dedication of our faculty and staff.”
The College of Nursing began its asynchronous online program in 2006 with the Master of Science in nursing (MSN) and the Doctor of Philosophy (PhD), followed by the Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) in 2009, and the Registered Nurse to Bachelor of Science in nursing (RN-BSN) in 2014. There are currently almost 300 students enrolled in the online graduate programs.
