NCCU Online Nursing Program Receives National Ranking


North Carolina Central University’s (NCCU) Online R.N.-to-B.S.N. Program ranks as No. 17 among the nation’s top 30 online nursing programs for 2016, according to College Values Online, which evaluated the programs based on quality and value.

To determine the rankings, the organization analyzed graduation data and tuition costs using information collected from the National Center for Education Statistics’ College Navigator database.

College Values Online helps students select the best college for their academic needs by offering rankings of schools and degree programs.

“The Department of Nursing’s ranking is an indication of our continuous efforts to provide premier education, whether on campus or within our online community,” said Dr. Wanda Lawrence, chair of the NCCU Department of Nursing. “Through our online degree program, nurses have an opportunity to advance their careers without disrupting their work schedule.”

NCCU’s Department of Nursing offers three options leading to the Bachelor of Science in Nursing and is fully accredited by the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing. The Online R.N.-to-B.S.N. Program was established in 2006 and allows students to complete the curriculum within 12 months, or in two years if electing a part-time status.

Beginning Fall 2016, the Department of Nursing will launch the Veterans Bachelor of Science in Nursing program. Funded by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ federal Bureau of Health Professions, the new program will meet the unique needs of veterans. NCCU will start by offering additional support services for veterans and allowing academic credit for relevant training and experience gained while enlisted.

The department is consistently ranked as a leading nursing program among its peers. In 2015, it was recognized as 13th best out of 1,189 nursing programs in the eastern United States by The Nurse Journal.
