UNCG’s Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) ranks No. 11 nationally in the latest U.S. News & World Report listing of “Best Online Master’s in Nursing Programs.”

UNCG’s online MSN is the top-ranked program in the UNC System, and the second-ranked program in the state behind a similar program at Duke University.

The rankings are based on five key factors: student engagement, faculty credentials and training, student services and technology, peer reputation and admissions selectivity.

“The recognition from U.S. News & World Report speaks to our student-centered approach,” said UNCG School of Nursing Dean Robin Remsburg. “With curriculum adjustments that make the program more attractive and relevant to student needs, we’re seeing a dramatic rise in applications.”

The MSN offers two concentrations: Nursing Administration and Nursing Education. Both concentrations are designed for working registered nurses.
