U.S. News & World Report has just released its Best Schools lists and the College of Staten Island has, once again, been ranked a Best School for its Nursing Master’s program.

Regarding the news, CSI Interim President Timothy G. Lynch commented, “I am pleased to see that the Nursing Master’s program at CSI has again received much-deserved recognition as a Best School. This accolade and the others that the College continues to receive, underscores the quality of a CSI education.”

According to the publication, “In fall 2022 and early 2023, U.S. News surveyed 648 nursing schools with master’s or doctoral programs accredited by either the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing or the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education. In total, 296 nursing programs responded to the statistical data collection survey. Of those, 184 provided
enough data – including reporting on at least five enrolled students in its program – to be included in the rankings of nursing master’s programs.”

The CSI Department of Nursing offers programs leading to the Master of Science (MS) in Adult-Gerontological Health Nursing. The MS degree programs have two options: Clinical Nurse Specialist (CNS) and Nurse Practitioner (NP). The Department also offers two Post-Master’s Advanced Certificates in Adult-Gerontological Health Nursing. These certificates prepare nurses who have Master’s degrees in Nursing to meet the requirements for certification as Adult-Gerontological Clinical Nurse Specialists or Primary Care Nurse Practitioners of New York State and the American Nurses Credentialing Center.

The Department also offers programs leading to the Doctor of Nursing Practice, Adult-Gerontological Health Nursing. The Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) degree programs have two options: Clinical Nurse Specialist (CNS) and Nurse Practitioner (NP).
