Elms College’s MSN Program Ranked Fourth in the U.S. by Forbes Advisor

The master of science in nursing (MSN) program at Elms College has been ranked the fourth-best MSN program in the U.S. by Forbes Advisor.

Forbes Advisor is part of the Forbes organization and dedicated to helping consumers make the best financial choices. A portion of its editorial content includes the ranking of higher-education institutions and programs.

“The Elms School of Nursing’s MSN program being ranked #4 in the country by Forbes Advisor speaks to the fabulous teamwork, teaching expertise, and students that are found in our MSN program,” said Julie Beck, dean of Elms College’s School of Nursing. “Our current director, Dr. Emily Cabrera, and her faculty have done a marvelous job at recruiting, teaching current nursing practice, and supporting our students who are eager to learn.”

The MSN program at Elms is fully online and allows students to pursue one of four tracks, including nursing and health-services management, nursing education, and an MSN/MBA dual-degree option. The fourth track, school nursing, is the only MSN school-nursing program in the U.S.

“Elms College has an exceptional history of educating nurses and supporting the healthcare community,” Cabrera said. “Our MSN students are experienced, professional nurses who are looking to advance their careers while maintaining work-school-life balance.”

For the online MSN rankings, Forbes Advisor rated data from several sources in categories of affordability, credibility, student outcomes, student experience, and the application process.
