    Ursuline’s Undergraduate Nursing Program Ranked 6th in Ohio in US News 2024 Best Colleges

    September 18, 2023

    The 2024 US News Best Colleges ranked Ursuline College’s Bachelor of Science in Nursing as 6th in Ohio, tied with Ohio University. Nationally, the College leaped 64 notches in the rankings to tie with multiple schools at the 183rd spot, up from 247th in the previous year.

    “Our dedicated faculty and staff help our students become some of Northeast Ohio’s most sought-after BSN-educated nurses,” states Patricia Sharpnack, DNP, RN, CNE, NEA-BC, ANEF, FAAN, dean of Ursuline College’s Breen School of Nursing and Health Professions. “We have 100% job placement rate among our graduates after they receive their licensure to become registered nurses. During the May licensure exam, we had a 100% pass rate for these young alumni.”

    Last spring, US News ranked the College’s master of science in nursing 34th in the nation. It will welcome its first cohort for new nurse anesthesia track within its doctor of nursing practice degree program in January 2024, pending approval by the Council on Accreditation of Nurse Anesthesia Educational Programs (COA).

    At the first of the year, the College will also add a new part-time option for its second degree in nursing program or accelerated BSN for people who already hold an undergraduate degree. Other new health care offerings include a physician assistant program, a bachelor’s degree completion program for respiratory therapists, and a bachelor’s in nutrition.

    In the 2024 Best College’s Midwest Regional Universities category, the College ranked 12th in the state and 83rd overall.

    “Our nursing program rests on a 75-year history of leadership in the field,” notes Ursuline College President Sister Christine De Vinne, OSU, PhD. “The new rankings testify to the efforts of today’s faculty and students as they work to advance the profession with dedicated skill and compassion.”
