WSU College of Nursing’s MSN and DNP programs again ranked among the top in the nation

The Wayne State University College of Nursing’s Master’s (MSN) and Doctorate of Nursing Practice (DNP) programs are once again ranked among the top in the nation.

U.S. News & World Report released its 2019 Best Graduate Schools rankings today showing the college’s MSN and DNP programs ranking at #50 and #39, respectively, in the country. These graduate programs are again the second highest ranked MSN and DNP programs in Michigan.

“This continued recognition of our success in educating a diverse student body and improving urban health through research, education and practice is a welcome honor,“ said Dean Laurie M. Lauzon Clabo.  “The college is committed to student and faculty success, which is reflected in its nationwide reputation as a premier college of nursing.”

The Best Graduate Schools rankings in these areas are based on two types of data: expert opinions about program excellence and statistical indicators that measure the quality of a school's faculty, research and students.
