SuperScholar.org Publishes First Annual Smart Choice Ranking of Schools for Online Nursing Degrees

SAN ANTONIO, Feb. 7, 2012 — Online education and career information website SuperScholar published its first annual “Smart Choice” ranking of the top 25 schools for online nursing degrees. The ranking can be found at http://www.superscholar.org/rankings/online/best-nursing-schools/.

SuperScholar editors developed the Smart Choice ranking as a tool to help prospective students make a smart choice about where to invest in their education. The ranking helps fill a void in quality, unbiased rankings and reviews of online nursing schools. In order to be considered for inclusion in the ranking, an institution had to be a regionally accredited college or university listed in the National Center for Education Statistics database and offer an online nursing degree program accredited by either the CCNE or NLNAC. The nursing schools that met this initial accreditation criterion were then evaluated based on reputation and prestige, program quality, student satisfaction and cost. The result is a ranking of online nursing schools that offers prospective students a helpful tool for making a smart choice about where to earn an online nursing degree.

The University of Illinois at Chicago in Chicago, Illinois, earned the honor of the top Smart Choice school for an online nursing degree. Other ranked schools include (in alphabetical order):

  • Anna Maria College
  • Benedictine University
  • Chamberlain College of Nursing
  • Clarkson College
