VUSN specialty ranked No. 1

Vanderbilt University School of Nursing’s Health System’s Management specialty has been ranked as the top online Health Systems Management program in the nation by the Best Colleges, an organization that produces independent ranking assessments of colleges in various disciplines.

“Our talented faculty, staff and informatics experts have helped us turn a strong program into one of the best in the country,” said Bonnie Pilon, Ph.D., R.N., VUSN’s Health Systems Management program director.

“Rankings are important, but the real validation is seeing the impact we are making with our students who will become leaders in health care delivery.”

VUSN first offered the Health Systems Management program in 1988. In 2007, the program went exclusively online to meet the demands of incoming students from throughout the country who wanted to join the program but were already embedded in jobs and careers outside of Nashville.
