Waynesburg University’s baccalaureate Nursing Program was ranked No. 2 in the state of Pennsylvania for the third consecutive year by RegisteredNursing.org.

Waynesburg received a score of 98.66 out of a possible 100, which was an increase over the previous year’s score of 97.97. Programs were evaluated on several factors, including how well a program supports students toward licensure and beyond, as well as current and historical pass rates on the National Council Licensing Examination for Registered Nurses (NCLEX-RN).

Seventy-seven schools were analyzed in the state of Pennsylvania and the top 30 were ranked. To be considered, schools must offer a Diploma in Nursing, Associate Degree in Nursing, Bachelor of Science in Nursing or Direct-Entry Master of Science in Nursing Degree.

RegisteredNursing.org’s mission is to promote excellence in nursing through enabling future nurses with the tools they need to succeed.

This was the third year for RegisteredNursing.org’s “RN Program Rankings.”

Waynesburg’s Nursing Program was also recently ranked a “Best Value” for Nursing and No. 4 out of the 500 school nursing programs considered by College Factual, placing the Nursing Program in the top 1 percent nationwide.

The program is accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE, One Dupont Circle, NW, Suite 530, Washington, DC 20036, 202-887-6791).
