U.S. News & World Report ranked UNLV’s online graduate nursing program as one of the 20 best in the country.

The Masters of Science in Nursing program ranked 18th out of 101 programs, which offer the curriculum entirely online. 

U.S. News ranked online master’s of nursing programs in four areas: admissions selectivity, faculty credentials and training, student engagement and accreditation and student services technology.

This is the second year of the rankings and the first time UNLV was featured in the list.
UNLV’s Master of Science in Nursing program offers two tracks – family nurse practitioner and nurse educator.  The program prepares advanced clinicians and educators in nursing who will serve the health needs of the community and educate future nursing care providers, according to information from the university.

The UNLV School of Nursing offers all of its graduate level courses online, including a Doctor of Nursing Practice Degree in collaboration with the University of Nevada, Reno and a PhD in Nursing. For more information visit nursing.unlv.edu.
