Waynesburg ranked among the top 1.5 percent of the more than 3,200 schools that were considered. Ten percent of those schools made the final list, with Waynesburg being ranked No. 49 in the nation.
“This ranking is a reflection of the dedication and commitment to excellence displayed by the faculty, students and graduates of the Waynesburg University Department of Nursing,” said Dr. Nancy Mosser, chair and director of the Department of Nursing and professor of nursing. “It is quite an honor to be ranked among the top 1.5 percent of schools nationwide.”
The ranking primarily examined schools on their academic prestige and perceived value, the breadth and depth of nursing programs offered and overall student success, particularly on the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX).
The mission of the Nursing Schools Almanac is to provide aspiring nurses a detailed, comprehensive and analytical resource for selecting their future nursing school.
Waynesburg was also recognized as No. 27 among private nursing schools and No. 12 overall in the Mid-Atlantic region, which includes Delaware, the District of Columbia, Maryland, New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania.
Waynesburg’s nursing program has established itself as a premier nursing program throughout the region, and with the recent addition of the modern, state-of-the-art simulation lab, students in the program receive unmatched learning opportunities.
