TUCSON (Tucson News Now) - The University of Arizona's College of Nursing is #20 among the "Top 30 Cutting-Edge Nursing Schools" in a new survey.

Other institutions on the list include Columbia University, Duke University, the University of Illinois-Chicago, Yale University and Johns Hopkins University.

"To make this ranking, a school has to be technologically advanced, but they also have to do a great job of integrating technology into the nursing experience," says Chris Collier, chief author and researcher for the list in a press release. "These schools are the best of the best. They strive to provide students with educational opportunities and experiences that other programs simply can't compare with."

U.S. News & World Report also ranked the UA nursing college, placing it among the top 6 percent of graduate nursing programs in the country. The National Research Council ranked the college No. 7 in the nation, while ranked the college No. 11 among the "Top 50 Most Social Media Friendly Nursing Schools" in 2012.
