Stony Brook receives national ranking for online nursing program

Stony Brook (N.Y.) University earned a spot among the country’s top online graduate nursing programs in U.S. News & World Report magazine’s 2015 survey.

The school’s program tied for 13th nationally out of 133 surveyed programs that offer full online curricula, according to the U.S. News website.

“This announcement is a testament to our renowned nursing program, the dedicated work of our prominent program faculty, and the significant growth and reputable quality of Stony Brook’s online programs,” Dennis N. Assanis, Stony Brook provost and senior vice president for academic affairs, said in the release.

Medical University of South Carolina ranked No. 1 in the annual best online graduate nursing programs survey, which measured five areas of assessment.

“We are delighted to see this recognition of our excellent online graduate programs,” Charles Taber, vice provost for graduate and professional education, said in the release. “We are proud to extend our traditional excellence in graduate education to an increasing variety of online programs.”

U.S. News ranked online nursing programs in student engagement, faculty credentials and training, peer reputation, student services and technology and admissions selectivity. Surveys were sent to all schools offering master’s programs online to gather data for the assessment.

Stony Brook ranked 13th nationally in student services and technology, 15th in admissions selectivity and 19th in student engagement.

All the rankings will be included in the 2016 U.S. News & World Report’s “Best Graduate Schools 2016” publication and “Best Colleges 2016” guidebooks. This is the third year U.S. News has numerically ranked online degree programs.
