January 9 – Millikin University’s School of Nursing has been named one of the top 75 nursing programs in the Great Lakes region according to a ranking released by Nursing Schools Almanac.
Institutions from Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Ohio and Wisconsin that offer nursing degrees were evaluated on three critical dimensions: the institution’s academic prestige and perceived value; the breadth and depth of nursing programs offered; and student success.
“Millikin University is thrilled to have its School of Nursing appraised with distinction in the Nursing Schools Almanac’s annual rankings using data gleaned from over 3,000 nursing programs across the United States,” said Dr. Deborah Slayton, dean of the College of Professional Studies.
“Millikin University, itself, consistently receives prestigious national and regional rankings for its curricular and co-curricular programming. Routinely, Millikin is recognized for its marketplace value to our graduates and for its affordability through its financial aid commitment to our current and prospective students.”
In its feature, Nursing Schools Almanac notes Millikin traditional nursing graduates scored an 86 percent pass rate on the NCLEX exam over the past decade, while Master’s graduates have achieved a perfect 100 percent pass rate.
“We are proud of our 2018 ranking with the Almanac,” said Slayton. “We are especially proud, however, of the consistent excellence demonstrated by the Millikin University School of Nursing in providing excellence in nursing care and patient advocacy in communities far flung in this country and abroad.”
