The Community for Accredited Online Schools, a leading resource provider for higher education information, has compiled a list of the best colleges and universities with accelerated nursing programs for 2017. Comparing more than a dozen unique statistics and data points submitted by schools nationwide, the group determined the Top 50 fast-track programs for nursing students, with University of Washington, Drexel University, Duke University, New York University and Loyola University Chicago earning the highest marks.
“Fast-track higher education programs require hard work, and the schools on our list have demonstrated that they have the resources to help ambitious nursing students earn a high-quality degree on an accelerated timeline,” said Doug Jones, CEO and founder of AccreditedSchoolsOnline.org.
To earn a spot on the “Best” list, colleges and universities must be institutionally accredited, public or private not-for-profit entities. Accelerated nursing programs are evaluated based on basic criteria such as student/teacher ratios, support services and financial aid availability, as well as other qualitative and quantitative data including the average NCLEX pass rate of graduating students.
