“In order to provide a cutting-edge experience, a school needs to do more than just provide high-tech equipment,” said Chris Collier, chief author and researcher for the list. “To make this ranking, a school has to be technologically advanced, but they also have to do a great job of integrating technology into the nursing experience. These schools are the best of the best. They strive to provide students with educational opportunities and experiences that other programs simply can't compare with.”

Factors used in the ranking include cutting-edge technology/infrastructure, world-class facilities and faculty, opportunities for experience, recognition by major publications such as U.S. News & World Report, and amazing architecture.

The UA College of Nursing is ranked among the top 6 percent of graduate nursing programs in the country by U.S. News & World Report and seventh in the nation by the National Research Council.
