The School of Nursing at Stony Brook University is ranked as 10th nationally for Best Online Graduate Nursing Programs in U.S. News & World Report. For the 2016 edition, schools were ranked using five categories — student engagement, faculty credentials and training, peer reputation, student services and technology, and admissions selectivity.
“This is a huge honor for our School and an even greater honor to those who give their expertise and energy to making our graduate programs so distinctive,” said Lee Xippolitos, Dean of the School of Nursing. “A special tribute goes out to Patricia Bruckenthal, who has directed our NP programs in graduate studies for the last five years. Her leadership, enthusiasm for curricula development and attention to ongoing academic improvements has helped bring our NP graduate programs to a new level.”
“I’d also like to acknowledge our program directors, Elizabeth Collins, Kammy McLoughlin, Cheryl Meddles-Torres, Barbara Sprung, Paula Timony, Kelly Walker and Justin Waryold, as well as all of the faculty who teach in these programs,” added Xippolitos. “Your dedication and commitment to the art of teaching has made this award a reality.”
