Augusta, Ga. – The online graduate nursing programs at Georgia Regents University’s College of Nursing appeared for the first time in national rankings by U.S. News and World Report on Jan. 8. GRU’s College of Nursing appeared 75th and was one of three Georgia institutions to be nationally ranked. Also ranked were online programs at University of West Georgia and Georgia College & State University.
“For over a decade, the College of Nursing community has blended high tech communications with pedagogy to provide quality education to nurses wherever they are,” said Dr. Lucy N. Marion, Dean of the GRU College of Nursing. “In addition to the satisfaction of serving so many nurses, the honor of being nationally ranked is like icing on the cake.”
U.S. News and World Report based the rankings on a number of factors including student engagement, faculty credentials and training, student services and technology, peer reputation, and admissions selectivity.
“As a dean with 20 years’ experience in distance education, I am happy to be associated with faculty and staff associates who have honored the College with national ranking of our online nursing education,” Marion said.
