IUP Nursing Program Selected By Princeton Review As Top Online Program

The accolades continue for Indiana University of Pennsylvania’s online master’s program in nursing.

IUP’s program was just named to The Princeton Review’s 2023 Top Online Nursing Programs; this recognition follows the program’s recognition by U.S. News & World Report for its 2022 “Best Online Program.” 

Princeton Review editors selected programs for the listing on the basis of flexibility, affordability, access to innovative technologies and global opportunities. 

IUP’s online Master of Science degree in nursing offers two tracks: nursing administration and nursing education, and students also have the option of completing a dual track degree. The program includes online coursework along with hands-on practicum experiences. IUP also offers a PhD in nursing, a DNP to PhD, and a Nursing, Simulation, and Technology Certificate of Recognition. 

“The Master of Science Degree program at IUP is student centered and we pride ourselves in helping students achieve their goals in all our nursing programs here at IUP,” said Dr. Pamela O’Harra, master’s in nursing program coordinator and associate professor of Nursing and Allied Health. “All students receive individual guidance, encouragement, and assistance by all our faculty in the Nursing department in order for our students to be successful in their academic journey.” 

IUP is routinely selected by national publications and websites for excellence, including 29 years of recognition by U.S. News & World Report as a “Best National University” and more than two decades of inclusion in the Princeton Review’s Best Colleges guidebook.

IUP offers more than 160 academic degree programs, including more than 50 graduate programs. In addition, students can complete more than 65 minors, including a unique teamwork minor—and scores of specialized tracks and certificate programs, including certificates in athletic coaching, gerontology, photography and digital imaging, popular music, and public history.

IUP continues to add state-of-the-art programs of study for its students. Its newest undergraduate majors are public health and environmental engineering, both in-demand careers in Pennsylvania and throughout the nation. With the addition of a PhD in business program, IUP offers 14 different doctoral degrees.

IUP has a longstanding commitment to research on all levels and in all disciplines. In 2021, IUP was selected as one of only two public universities in Pennsylvania and one of only 93 public universities in the United States selected for the “High Research Activity” designation by the Carnegie Classification of Higher Institutions of Higher Education.
