College of Nursing ranked No. 1 by online nursing community

Georgia Regents University’s College of Nursing was recently recognized by Nurse Journal, an online social community developed for both nurses and current or future nursing students as a way of sharing information relevant to the nursing field.

Based on an evaluation of more than 1,100 nursing schools in the United States, Nurse Journal ranked GRU’s College of Nursing the No. 1 nursing school in the Eastern region. The list included Yale University, Johns Hopkins University and Clemson University, among several other high-profile universities on the East Coast.

Nurse Journal’s rankings are based on a number of factors. Including information such as affordability, retention and graduation rates and overall institutional quality, Nurse Journal gathers data from the Institute of Education Sciences, the Bureau of Labor Statistics and the state Boards of Nursing. They also collect data based upon student opinions, such as a university’s overall “RateMyProfessor.com” ratings.
