BU Nursing Program Ranked Third in State

For Immediate Release: March 16, 2017

BLOOMSBURG—Bloomsburg University of Pennsylvania’s Nursing program is ranked third best in the state by RegisteredNursing.org. BU’s program is the only Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education (PASSHE) school ranked in the top 10.

Nursing programs were assessed on several factors which represent how well a program supports students towards licensure and beyond. Among the factors surveyed was the pass rate for the NCLEX-RN exam, used by all state boards of nursing in the United States to help assess a student's competency for licensure. RegisteredNursing.org wrote that BU’s programs are rigorous and demanding but offer real world clinical labs, patient-based theory and supportive faculty. Nursing graduates are prepared for professional life in an array of situations.
