Note: These online nursing degree rankings are based on an exclusive Get Educated Spring 2013 survey of regionally accredited universities with online nursing schools that offer online nursing master's degrees.
Tuition and online education costs were valid at time of collection (Spring 2013). Profiles for each online nursing degree in our guide may reflect different costs based on a different editorial update schedule.
The published cost is an estimated price for the entire nursing master's and typically reflects the most affordable online degree option. Actual costs will vary. Factors such as nursing licenses held at entrance, transfer credits, prerequisite courses and financial aid will affect the final online degree cost for nursing students.
Online universities NEVER pay to be included in any Get Educated online university ranking list. These online nursing master's rankings are editorially independent, open to any regionally accredited university that offers a degree that is offered at least 80% via online learning and that is open to the public.
There is no cost to be included in the Get Educated online graduate school rankings or to use the Get Educated Best Buy award seals should your online nursing degree appear on these rankings. If your online nursing school is regionally accredited and not currently ranked for affordability by Get Educated please contact us for inclusion. The next Best Buy cost rankings of online nursing schools will be undertaken Spring 2015.
