  •     3rd in Student Engagement and Accreditation (maintained from 2013)
  •     6th in Overall Best Online Graduate Nursing program (maintained from 2013)
  •     8th in Student Services and Technology (maintained from 2013)
  •     23rd in Admissions Selectivity (up from 24th in 2013)
  •     29th in Faculty Credentials and Training (up from 32nd in 2013)
