ECU College of Nursing was ranked 18th in the nation for online graduate nursing programs for student services and technology by US News & World Report.
The College of Nursing has consistently been named by U.S. News as one of the largest distance education programs in the country. However, this year, U.S. News ranked online master’s programs in four categories: admissions selectivity, student engagement and accreditation, faculty credentials and training, and student services and technology.
The new ranking provides national recognition for quality of the online concentrations in our MSN program. Online concentrations include: Family Nurse Practitioner, Adult Nurse Practitioner, Nurse-Midwifery, Nursing Leadership, Neonatal Nurse Practitioner, Clinical Nurse Specialist and Nursing Education.
These concentrations are offered 100% online with clinical rotations in students’ hometowns. Curricula respond to the national nursing shortage by allowing practicing nurses to work in their home communities while pursuing the graduate degree.
Our faculty and staff work diligently to maintain a quality program and provide support equivalent to services for campus-based students. Our program provides hands-on clinical and virtual experiences that simulate the clinical environment using advanced technology. Additionally, East Carolina MSN graduates perform well on national licensing exams after graduation.
