#10 in the nation

The University of Pittsburgh School of Nursing is again recognized for excellence in its academic programs. U.S. News and World Report ranked the BSN program No. 10 (tie) in the nation, up five spots from the previous year, as noted in their Best Bachelor of Science in Nursing rankings released September 18, 2023.

“This achievement is a testament to our faculty, staff, and students' dedication, hard work, and unwavering commitment and reflects our relentless pursuit of excellence in nursing education,” said Christine E. Kasper, PhD, FACSM, FAAN, dean and professor. “This accomplishment signifies our continued journey toward providing top-tier nursing education and producing graduates who are exceptionally well-prepared to significantly impact healthcare on a global scale. It is a testament to the school’s commitment to scientific rigor, innovation and providing care based on science and evidence, and is propelling us to the forefront of nursing education.”

U.S. News and World Report also ranked The School of Nursing’s DNP (Doctor of Nursing) practice in the No. 10 spot in April. The Administrative DNP program was individually ranked at No. 6 (tie). Meanwhile, the Clinical Nurse Leadership (CNL) program, part of Pitt Nursing’s MSN program, was ranked No. 4. In January, the publication ranked the School of Nursing’s Online MSN program No. 7.

These annual rankings are a way to promote and elevate Pitt Nursing’s impact in nursing education, training and influence and guide prospective students in finding programs best suited for their academic and career interests.
