Nursing Schools Almanac has just released its 2019 rankings of the best U.S. nursing schools, and LSU Health New Orleans School of Nursing jumped two spots up in the top 10 and one spot among public nursing schools. LSU Health New Orleans School of Nursing is now ranked the #8 nursing school in the U.S. and #3 among public nursing schools.
Nursing Schools Almanac collected data on more than 3,000 nursing schools and campuses nationwide, and only three percent made its list of the 100 best nursing schools in the nation.
“Our achievement of these national rankings is evidence of our commitment to our core values of stewardship, organizational citizenship, nursing innovation, caring, professionalism, respect, integrity, diversity and excellence and nursing school mission,” notes Demetrius Porche, DNS, PhD, FACHE, FAANP, FAAN, LSU Health New Orleans School of Nursing dean and professor.
“Our nursing school faculty, staff and students are dedicated to ensuring we meet the workforce and health care needs of our academic-practice partners,” says Porche.
