School of Nursing Ranked Among “10 Best” in Nation

Fairfield University’s Marion Peckham Egan School of Nursing and Health Studies has been named among the nation’s 10 best schools at which to earn a degree in nursing. Joining the Egan School on the list is the University of Pennsylvania, in addition to other first-rate nursing schools affiliated with top teaching hospitals in the United States, including New York University and Johns Hopkins University.

The rankings were provided by College Factual, a site dedicated to providing current and prospective college students the information they need to make an informed decision about their higher education future.

The article notes the high percentage of graduates who find numerous employment opportunities and earn above-average national salaries. Additionally, the low faculty-student ratio and high percentage of full-time faculty members were noted.

This latest ranking for the Egan School comes on the heels of Fairfield’s inclusion in U.S. News & World Report’s 2016 edition of “Best Graduate Schools” and the Egan School’s top 10 ranking for best hybrid RN to BSN programs in the country.
