Today, U.S. News & World Report published its rankings for 2021, and not only does Carolina Nursing remain first among all public master’s nursing programs in the country, but we have risen in the rankings to third overall.

“While these rankings are only a small measure of our achievements, they serve as a reflection of our vision to be first in nursing, as well as a reminder that we accomplish great things when we set our hearts and minds to work,” said Dean Peragallo in an email to faculty, staff, and students.

Our full rankings in the Report are as follows:

MSN: Tied for 3rd
DNP: 7th
Nursing Administration: 4th
Family Nurse Practitioner: 5th
Psych-Mental Health NP: Tied for 3rd
Adult Gerontology Primary Care Nurse Practitioner: Tied for 3rd
