Ohio State’s Bachelor of Science in Nursing program ranked among the nation’s top ten

First-ever BSN rankings by U.S. News & World Report released

U.S. News & World Report’s inaugural rankings of the nation’s Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) degree programs places The Ohio State University College of Nursing among the best in the country.

Ohio State’s sought-after BSN program tied for 10th nationally and tied for 6th among public colleges and universities. These first-ever rankings were based on peer reputation among deans and senior faculty members of nursing schools and departments across the nation, who rated the academic quality of programs from 694 institutions on a five-point scale.

“The Buckeye Nurse tradition provides the foundation for the education of new generations of healthcare leaders prepared to transform health and healthcare in individuals, families and communities,” said Cindy Anderson, PhD, APRN-CNP, ANEF, FAHA, FNAP, FAAN, senior associate dean for academic affairs and educational innovation at the College of Nursing. “There is so much excellence, quality and heart displayed by our students in the legendary red scrubs and the staff and faculty who educate, support and inspire them.”
