DNP, online programs join master’s at No. 1 for 2020
The Johns Hopkins School of Nursing (JHSON) master’s degree programs will remain No. 1 for 2020, according to the U.S. News & World Report rankings of the nation’s Best Graduate Schools. The Doctor of Nursing Practice Program also rose to No. 1, as did the school’s online programs (in a separate U.S. News survey).
Conducted annually, the U.S. News & World Report rankings are determined by weighing peer assessment, program size, student selectivity, faculty resources, research activity, and more.
JHSON’s programs in several nursing specialties made the U.S. News top five:
- No. 2 in Nursing Administration
- No. 3 in Nurse Practitioner: Adult / Gerontology, Acute Care (tie)
- No. 5 in Nurse Practitioner: Adult / Gerontology, Primary Care (tie)
- No. 5 in Nurse Practitioner: Family
- No. 5 in Nurse Practitioner: Pediatric, Primary Care (tie)
- No. 5 in Nurse Practitioner: Psychiatric / Mental Health, Across the Lifespan (tie)
“Having three No. 1 rankings speaks volumes to our leadership, faculty, and students across the board and our commitment to excellence in all areas of nursing education, research, and practice,” says Dean Patricia M. Davidson, PhD, MEd, RN, FAAN. “This is a significant recognition of the work that we do to define the future of nursing and advocate for exceptional education, patient health, and the upward movement of the profession.”
