Seton Hall University College of Nursing was ranked in the top 100 graduate schools of nursing in the country for 2016 by U.S. News & World Report.

Seton Hall College of Nursing, which jumped ahead 55 spots this year, attributes the positive evaluation to its thorough admissions process, the academic support provided to its graduate students and the continued research of faculty.
The newly appointed dean of the College of Nursing, Marie Foley, Ph.D., R.N., is enthusiastic about the rankings. “Our graduate nursing programs have demonstrated excellent outcomes for a long time and we are proud to be recognized on a national level by U.S. News & World Report,” Foley noted.
Seton Hall offers M.S.N. programs for advanced practice nurses who want to specialize in pediatric primary care and adult-gerontology – acute or primary care. For those who are interested in executive positions, Seton Hall also has a Health Systems Administration program. Furthermore, the college offers a case management/health systems administration M.S.N. degree.
“The value of a graduate degree at Seton Hall University is evident. Our graduates excel in their profession and continue to advance nursing every day,” said Foley.
Her sentiments are echoed by Graduate Chair Judith Lothian, Ph.D., R.N., who directly oversees the graduate department.
“Most of our graduate programs are available online, but our close communication and learning methodologies cultivate personal connections among students and faculty,” Lothian said. “Our graduates are well-prepared when they leave Seton Hall, and their potential employers respect a nurse who has completed a degree at Seton Hall University College of Nursing.”
