The Regis College Richard and Sheila Young School of Nursing is pleased to announce it is ranked among the top 10 best nursing schools in Massachusetts by Nurse.org, a website that publishes thought-provoking content and culture-changing initiatives for nurses and nursing students.
The panel-reviewed selection is based on a number of factors including reputation, NCLEX pass rate, tuition, and acceptance rate. Only Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing (ACEN) or Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE) accredited schools are eligible.
The Young School of Nursing was recognized for receiving three consecutive National League of Nursing Center of Excellence designations since 2008.
