PUEBLO – A nursing program in the Steel City is one of the best the nation.

RN Careers has ranked Colorado State University-Pueblo’s nursing program as the best in the state, and fourth in the nation for its Bachelor of Science program.

“It’s a lot of dedication by the faculty, commitment to the community, the hospital and service of Southern Colorado,” said Dr. Joe Franta, associate dean for nursing.

The programs are based on the rate that exams are passed, tuition costs, faculty strength, and other qualities.

The CSU-Pueblo program will get even stronger this fall, that’s when it will offer its first Doctorate in nursing.
