LUBBOCK – The Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center School of Nursing has ranked among the top nursing schools in the nation for the third year in a row in U.S. News & World Report’s 2007 edition of America’s best graduate schools.

The School of Nursing master’s degree program ranked 75th in the nation in the exclusive annual listing and is the only ranked nursing school in the West Texas region.

“We are really fortunate to have some of the best and brightest nursing students and faculty in the country,” said Alexia Green, Ph.D., dean of the School of Nursing.

Health Sciences Center President M. Roy Wilson, M.D., M.S., said the honor brings well-deserved attention to the School of Nursing and the institution.

“This honor is reflective of the commitment we have to providing the highest quality educational opportunities,” he said.

The magazine’s rankings of health disciplines are based on the results of peer assessment surveys by program directors and faculty at accredited degree programs or schools in each discipline.
