The Emory University Nell Hodgson Woodruff School of Nursing’s Bachelor of Science (BSN) program is now ranked No. 3 in the nation, according to rankings released today by U.S. News & World Report. This ranking accompanies our No. 1 master’s program ranking and our No. 6 Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) program ranking.

This is the third year that U.S. News & World Report has ranked undergraduate programs, and Emory School of Nursing has been ranked in the top five since the rankings began.

Emory School of Nursing is consistently recognized as a leader in nursing education. In addition to its top U.S. News rankings, the school is among the top five nursing schools in the country in National Institutes of Health funding and was named a 2022-2027 Center of Excellence by the National League for Nursing.

“We are thrilled by this recognition. Being named as a highly-ranked institution highlights our commitment to our students and the importance of providing a top-tier nursing education,” says Dean Linda McCauley, PhD, RN, FAAN, FRNC. “It is thanks to our hard-working students, faculty and staff that we received this prestigious honor.”

To receive the survey from U.S. News & World Report, an institution’s nursing school must be accredited at the bachelor’s level by either the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education or the Accredited Commission for Education in Nursing and be a regionally accredited institution that awarded at least 35 BSN degrees.
