“Online learning has grown in popularity and the benefits in nursing education are wide-ranging,” said Dr. Hassan Aziz, CONHS Dean. “In online nursing classes, students experience adaptability along with peer and faculty interaction. The College of Nursing and Health Sciences at Texas A&M-Corpus Christi has long been a pioneer in online education and is anticipated to continue in the future.”

EduMed.org is a program that recognizes and supports higher education in medicine and health. They provide students with well-researched content and materials for guidance with scholarships, financial aid, and finding the top schools in nursing, public health, healthcare administration, and other key medical and health disciplines.

“Our rankings showcase the schools giving future nurses and allied health professionals the best chance to succeed from day one in the classroom to day one on the job,” said Wes Harris, EduMed.org Outreach Coordinator “Online programs open the door to students who may not be able to commit to a campus-based program while working, or to commute to a classroom at all. Each school in our rankings has made online learning a priority.”

EduMed.org researched and analyzed more than 7,700 accredited schools using data from the Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS) and from the schools themselves. The website’s data science team then applied a proprietary algorithm to rank all qualifying schools for each healthcare discipline. Primary data points include: 

  • Academic counseling services
  • Career placement services
  • Student-to-faculty ratio
  • Tuition
  • Percent of students receiving school-based financial aid
  • Amount of school-based aid per student

To be eligible, a school must hold active regional accreditation and have at least one partially online program in the ranking subject. Just 8% of U.S. postsecondary institutions earned a ranking position.
