The School of Nursing consistently ranks among the highest in the nation among U.S. News & World Report's top master of science in nursing (MSN) programs, and it was the first school in North Carolina to offer the doctor of nursing practice degree.
There are many amazing nursing programs in addition to those listed above. I went to UT in Austin and now know many talented nurses that graduated from that program. If cost is an issue for you, don't hesitate to consider less expensive state schools.
