Top 50 Colleges and Universities Honored for Overall Quality in Registered Nursing Programs

The Community for Accredited Online Schools, a leading resource provider for higher education information, has compiled a list of the best registered nursing (RN) programs in the nation for 2017. Of the schools that were ranked, New York University, Cedar Crest College, Loyola University Chicago, Shenandoah University and Molloy College took the top five spots. More than a dozen unique data points and statistics reported by schools nationwide were used to score each school and compile the Top 50 list.

“Registered nurses are in-demand, and the field continues to be one of the fastest growing across the country,” said Doug Jones, CEO and founder of AccreditedSchoolsOnline.org. “The schools on our list have shown a commitment to providing quality education and resources to help students kick-start their careers in nursing.”

To earn a spot on the Community for Accredited Online Schools’ “Best” program list, colleges and universities must be institutionally accredited, public or private not-for-profit entities. Each school is then scored on such criteria as the average NCLEX pass rate of graduating students, variety of program offerings, student/teacher ratios, employment and student support services and more.
