NSU nursing program ranked best in Oklahoma
TAHLEQUAH, Okla. — Northeastern State University nursing has been recognized as a best online program and best RN to BSN program in Oklahoma by EduMed.
The nursing program was listed as one of the top three offered by public universities in Oklahoma in both categories.
“NSU is committed to making accessible online education available to students as they work to enter the nursing field,” NSU President Rodney Hanley said. “It is our privilege to educate students who will one day use their degree to take care of others.”
The rankings highlight the year’s top programs based on a combination of factors such as affordability, accessibility and commitment to student success.
“We know our students are working adults, and we try to make the program as flexible as possible” Dr. Heather Fenton, NSU Director of Nursing Programs said. “Our faculty love working with the students to help them reach their educational goals.”
Dr. Jessica Martin, interim dean for the Gregg Wadley College of Science & Health Professions, said the program was one of the first of its kind in Oklahoma with the mission to provide educational mobility for associate degree and diploma-prepared nurses and to provide preparation for graduate education in nursing.
The rankings were recently published by EduMed, a leader in supporting student’s pursuits of an online or hybrid education in allied health, nursing and medical fields.
The RN to BSN program was also ranked No. 35 in the country by Intelligent.com.
