Cal State LA nursing master’s program continues to be ranked among the best in the nation, according to the U.S. News & World Report’s 2023-2024 edition of Best Graduate Schools.
Cal State LA is one of only two public universities in Los Angeles County included in the publication’s “Best Nursing Schools: Master’s” listing. For more than two decades, U.S. News & World Report has consistently ranked Cal State LA’s nursing graduate program among the top 10 programs in California.
The Patricia A. Chin School of Nursing, housed in the Rongxiang Xu College of Health and Human Services, comprises approximately 400 undergraduate nursing students, more than 175 graduate students, and four tenured professors and eight tenure-track faculty members. The school is accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education.
“We are honored to have been selected again as one of the top graduate schools in the country,” said Cinthya Sotelo, interim director of the school. “We are grateful for this recognition and I am especially grateful for all the hard work that goes into making it all happen. Above all else, we are dedicated to student success and this recognition demonstrates how dedicated we all truly are.”
The graduate program offers a nursing education option and nurse-practitioner options in adult gerontology primary care, adult gerontology acute care, family, and family psychiatric/mental health. Cal State LA launched its joint Doctor of Nursing Practice program in fall 2012.
In the latest listing, U.S. News & World Report also includes Cal State LA’s graduate programs in rehabilitation counseling, fine arts, social work, and public affairs among the top 100 in the nation.
The graduate school rankings are based on two types of data: expert opinions about program excellence and statistical indicators that measure the quality of a school’s faculty, research, and students. Detailed explanations of each ranking are available on the U.S. News website.
