CONHI named top nursing program in DFW
Nursing Schools Almanac named the nursing program at The University of Texas at Arlington as the top overall nursing program in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, fifth in the Southwest U.S. and a top 50 school nationally.
The site touted the College of Nursing and Health Innovation’s (CONHI) three National League of Nursing Center of Excellence designations and its record of graduating more than 600 prelicensure Bachelor of Science in Nursing students annually with a 91% first-time National Council Licensure Examination pass rate over the past 10 years.
Earlier this year, CONHI was named among one of the top RN to BSN programs by Everynurse.org.
“As the largest producer of baccalaureate-educated nurses in Texas and one of the top producers in the country, CONHI’s impact in the nursing world will continue to be felt for generations to come,” Dean Elizabeth Merwin said. “We are pleased to see the hard work and dedication of our students, faculty and staff gain national recognition.”
Nursing Schools Almanac assessed nearly 3,000 schools nationwide, ranking them on a number of factors, including academic prestige, program breadth and depth and student success on nursing license examinations.
