JACKSON, Tenn.Jan. 9, 2014 – Union University’s School of Nursing has one of the top online graduate nursing programs in the country, according to U.S.News & World Report.

In recently released rankings, the publication placed Union’s program 56th nationally, tied with the University of Pittsburgh, the University of South Alabama and the University of Southern Indiana and ahead of such programs as the University of Arkansas, University of Missouri and University of Virginia.

Tim Smith, dean of the School of Nursing, said he appreciated this recognition that represents the excellence in academic programming and caliber of faculty that serve in the graduate and undergraduate programs in the School of Nursing.

The ranking was based on Union’s online Master of Science in Nursing graduate tracks, which include the Master of Science in Nursing Administration and Master of Science in Nursing Education. Both tracks are taught fully online.
