Health & Nursing Programs College Rankings

The reliable college ranking surveys do not list top colleges with overall rankings for health/nursing/medicine programs. They break out major career choices and rank schools accordingly. Below is a brief review of the US News and World Report college ratings for major healthcare careers.

Top Nursing Programs

  • University of Washington
  • UC/San Francisco
  • University of Pennsylvania
  • Johns Hopkins
  • University of Michigan
  • University of North Carolina
  • Oregon Health and Science University
  • University of Illinois
  • University of Maryland
  • University of Pittsburgh

All of these schools except the University of California offer a BSN degree, but no two year programs. They are principally graduate schools - which can be an exciting environment for an undergrad.

Top Healthcare Management Schools

  • University of Michigan
  • University of Minnesota
  • University of North Carolina
  • University of Pennsylvania
  • University of Washington
  • Virginia Commonwealth
  • University of Alabama
  • Northwestern University
  • UC/Berkeley
  • UCLA

These rankings cross some academic lines. Penn's healthcare management degree is offered through their business school. UC Berkeley is ranked twice, once for their School of Public Health and once for the program offered at their Haas School of Business.

Top Physical Therapy Programs

  • University of Southern California
  • University of Pittsburgh
  • Washington University of St. Louis
  • University of Delaware
  • US Army - Baylor University/Fort Sam Houston, TX
  • University of Iowa
  • Arcadia University
  • Mass General Hospital/Boston

If you're willing to devote a few years to military service, you can obtain your physical therapy degree courtesy of the US Army.
