Webster University’s Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) program was listed by U.S. News & World Report as among the best master’s in nursing programs in the United States, it was announced today.

This is the third consecutive year that the nursing program has been nationally ranked by U.S. News.

“The faculty and staff of the Webster University Department of Nursing are grateful to be ranked among the best in the nation for our graduate nursing program by U.S. News & World Report,” said Assistant Professor Susan McFarlan, coordinator of the Master’s of Science in Nursing program.

“We are proud of the 40-year history of a student-centric and personalized approach of the nursing faculty. Prepared as educators and leaders, our Master of Science in Nursing graduates are highly valued by their organizations. We are truly honored by this recognition and grateful for all our alums and the over 200 Master of Science in Nursing students are doing to care for others during this pandemic and to make a better world.”

U.S. News annually ranks professional school programs in business, education, engineering, law, medicine and nursing, including specialties in each area. 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.

The data for the rankings in all six disciplines came from statistical surveys of more than 2,125 programs and from reputation surveys sent to more than 23,000 academics and professionals, conducted in fall 2020 and early 2021. The full list of schools in this year’s ranking can be found online here.
