UT College of Nursing moves up in rankings
TOLEDO, Ohio (WNWO) - The University of Toledo's College of Nursing is among U.S. News and World Reports list of top graduate nursing programs in the country. The program jumped 20 spots, putting them at 183.
Dr. Linda Lewandowski, dean of the UT College of Nursing, said they are constantly working to increase student success and grow the program, especially with the nationwide nursing shortage. They can't put their thumb on one thing, they attribute the success to a number of different areas.
“We increased the number of students, we have very high certification pass rates, we have increased number of offerings," said Dr. Linda Lewandowski. "We now also have a psychiatric mental health program and we have an adult geriatric nurse practitioner program.”
This is the first time the nursing program has ranked on this list.
