UBC Nursing ranked 13th in the world!

For the past several years UBC Nursing has been ranked at 20th to 25th in the world, which is pretty impressive, but we have great news! This year our QS World ranking for Nursing leaped up to #13!

This new ranking places our school just below the Canadian nursing schools at the University of Toronto and University of Alberta, and above the very impressive programs at McMaster and McGill. School director Dr. Elizabeth Saewyc notes,

This is really exciting news, placing us alongside top tier Schools of Nursing like U Penn, Johns Hopkins, UW, Yale, Columbia, Manchester, and the Florence Nightengale (Kings College London), and ahead of other impressive schools like Duke, U Michigan Ann Arbor, UCSF and UCLA. 

Of course this is due to the amazing productivity and reputation of our faculty (since citations and h-index weigh in the mix) but also the highest score reputation with employers, above even #1 ranked U Penn.

Congratulations team!
