Diverse lists nursing program amongst top 3 in the U.S.

In its August issue, Diverse Issues in Higher Education published its top list of bachelor’s degrees conferred at Historically Black Colleges and Universities. Southern University landed amongst the top three institutions in the nation to confer degrees in registered nursing, nursing administration, nursing research and clinical nursing.

According to Diverse, “data for the analysis are included within the completions survey of the U.S. Department of Education’s National Center for Education Statistics’ Integrated Postsecondary Education Data Set. This analysis is based on degrees conferred during the 2016-17 academic year.”
