The college’s graduate Nursing programs have been recognized as some of the best in the nation according to U.S. World News Best Graduate Schools rankings released on Tuesday, March 30th. Daemen joins a list of notable institutions named to the rankings including Duke University and the University of Pennsylvania.
“It is a great honor to be recognized among the many nursing programs across the country,” said Dr. Cheryl Nosek, chair of the Daemen College Nursing Department. “We are a user friendly program, and our class schedule is designed to meet the needs of our students who are working and have family responsibilities. At the same time, we maintain the standards necessary to prepare highly qualified graduates ready to hit the ground running as they advance in their nursing careers.”
The rankings assessed hundreds of schools’ nursing master’s programs on their research activity, faculty resources, student excellence, and qualitative ratings from experts to help prospective students determine which programs will best serve their interests and help them achieve their goals.
“Our faculty are credentialed both academically and experientially,” said Nosek. “Our class sizes are small to ensure that our students are engaged and recognized as people, not numbers. We assist students in finding clinical placements that meet their learning needs as well as their career goals.”
She added, “Our alumni report high levels of satisfaction with the program. While at Daemen, they engage in research and projects that promote evidence based practice, and they report that the preparation they receive at Daemen prepares them well to work in their chosen nursing specialty.”
The college’s multiple nursing graduate degrees, all accredited by the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing (ACEN), include Adult-Gerontology Primary Care Nurse Practitioner, M.S.; Nursing Executive Leadership, M.S.; and Nursing Education, M.S.
