Four Healthcare Programs Among U.S. News and World Report’s Best Graduate Schools

by Janelle Hill Mar 31, 2021

Four of DeSales’ graduate healthcare programs are getting high marks from U.S. News and World Report.

The Master of Science in Nursing (MSN), Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP), Physician Assistant (PA), and Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) programs have all ranked on U.S. News and World Report’s 2022 list of Best Graduate Schools.

The nursing programs were assessed on research activity, faculty resources, student excellence, and qualitative ratings from experts. The PA and DPT programs were ranked solely on the results of peer assessment surveys sent to deans, other administrators, or faculty.

Earlier this year, the Master of Business Administration (MBA) program ranked on U.S. News and World Report’s 2021 list of Best Online MBA Programs, while the Master of Science in Information Systems (MSIS) program joined the list of Best Online Graduate Computer Information Technology Programs.
