School of Nursing Ranks Among Top Five Percent in U.S.
The University of Texas School of Nursing at Houston now ranks among the top five percent of the nation’s nursing schools, according to U.S. News & World Report’s 2008 edition of the influential “America’s Best Graduate Schools” guide. The School of Nursing moved up in the rankings to 19th from 29th among 395 master’s programs surveyed. Its gerontological/geriatric nursing program is ranked No. 8 of the top 10 in this specialty.
The school also earned the No. 2 spot in the “Nursing–Anesthesia” category for its U.S. Army Graduate Program in Anesthesia Nursing.
“These outstanding rankings for the UT School of Nursing at Houston are great news and very well deserved, reflecting the superb leadership and initiative of Dean Patricia Starck, her wonderful faculty and staff, and the outstanding students at the school,” said James T. Willerson, M.D., president of The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston.
