Waynesburg Nursing Program ranked No. 2 for second consecutive year

Matthew Stultz Feb 1, 2018 ranked Waynesburg University’s baccalaureate Nursing Program No. 2 in the state of Pennsylvania for the second consecutive year.

“It is once again a great honor to be recognized as the second best nursing program in Pennsylvania,” said Dr. Kathy Stolfer, associate professor of nursing and interim chair of the nursing program. “The ongoing dedication of the nursing faculty in maintaining program standards and being committed to student learning is congruent with the University’s mission.”

Seventy-six schools were analyzed in Pennsylvania and the top 30 were ranked. Programs reviewed include schools that offer a Diploma in Nursing, Associate Degree in Nursing, Bachelor of Science in Nursing or Direct-Entry Master of Science in Nursing Degree.’s mission is to promote excellence in nursing through enabling future nurses with the tools they need to succeed.
