This acknowledgement is a testament to our passionate faculty and staff who continue to move our university forward.
Portland, ME (PRWEB) February 06, 2015
The University of New England has once again distinguished itself as a leader among competitors, this time for its Accelerated Bachelor of Science in Nursing (ABSN) program. Top RN to BSN, an online guide for prospective and current nursing students, ranked UNE number 12 in a list of 50 Best ABSN Programs.
Rankings were based on factors including philosophy and mission, academic standards, cost, time constraints, user-friendly websites and advanced degree options. While the list recognized achievement from schools across the country, UNE was the only Maine-based university represented.
“We are extremely proud to receive this recognition,” commented Jennifer Morton, director of Nursing at UNE. “Especially within the three short years since we rolled out the program.”
This honor is one among many received by UNE over the past several months; the university was most recently listed as having one of the Best Online Graduate Education Programs by U.S. News & World Report, and was also named one of “America’s Top Colleges” by Forbes.
“Students are our top priority at UNE, and we are always working to ensure that we offer them the most progressive and beneficial programs possible,” says President Danielle Ripich. “This acknowledgement is a testament to our passionate faculty and staff who continue to move our university forward.”
