According to new 2022 rankings from Nursing Schools Almanac, an online publication devoted to providing information to aspiring healthcare professionals in nursing disciplines, Midwestern University’s graduate nursing programs received high marks for value, program depth, and student success.

Midwestern was ranked second in the Phoenix metropolitan area specifically, and third overall in the state of Arizona, based on Nursing Schools Almanac’s evaluation criteria. The publication ranks programs based on three categories: the institution’s academic prestige and perceived value (50% of overall score); the breadth and depth of nursing programs offered (20% of overall score); and student success, particularly on licensure examinations (30% of overall score).

The University’s first nursing program was established in 2004 with the Nurse Anesthesia master’s degree in the College of Health Sciences. A Doctor of Nurse Anesthesia (D.N.A.P) completion program was added in 2015. Last year, the College debuted a new slate of graduate nursing programs, including master’s degrees in Adult Gerontology Primary Care and Nurse Leadership, doctoral degrees in Adult Gerontology Primary Care and Nurse Executive specialties, and a post-master’s degree certificate program in Adult Gerontology Primary Care.

Nursing Schools Almanac specifically highlighted the quality of Midwestern’s high-fidelity simulation and cadaver laboratories, as well as its array of experiential clinical sites, that have resulted in high student graduation and certification exam pass rates.
