EduRank

Below is a list of best universities in the World ranked based on their research performance in Nursing. A graph of 1.8B citations received by 83.2M academic papers made by 3,732 universities in the World was used to calculate publications' ratings, which then were adjusted for release dates and added to final scores.

We don't distinguish between undergraduate and graduate programs nor do we adjust for current majors offered. You can find information about granted degrees on a university page but always double-check with the university website.
