College Choice Ranks Southeast’s Online Bachelor’s in Nursing Among Nation’s Best


College Choice has ranked Southeast Missouri State University’s Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) among the nation’s top 50 best online registered nurse (RN) to BSN degree programs.

Southeast’s program is ranked 14th among the programs.

“We are pleased to be recognized for our program’s availability, affordability and flexibility,” said Dr. Gloria Green, chair of Southeast’s Department of Nursing. “We’ve worked to provide a variety of methods and assignments to enhance the learning of our students as they progress through the program.”

College Choice developed the rankings by weighing program accreditation, national reputation, tuition costs and early career earnings of graduates, and then arriving at a composite score that balances academic excellence with return on investment.

Southeast’s online RN-BSN program offers a six-course nursing curriculum for registered nurses desiring a Bachelor of Science in Nursing and is accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE). The program allows RNs to earn a higher degree to be a better prepared professional capable of meeting the challenges of today’s constantly changing healthcare industry, gaining more marketability, and increasing advancement opportunities.

Additionally, the program allows students to receive course credit or competency credit for previous education and professional experience; schedule required field experiences in their geographic area and place of employment; and receive individualized advising from academic advisors devoted to RN-BSN students.

“We are dedicated to providing quality, accredited educational experiences to students in and out of Missouri and are proud that College Choice ranks this program among its best,” said Chelsea Caile, director of Southeast Online Programs. “This program is tremendously beneficial for working nurses. They pay one tuition rate, regardless of in-state or out-of-state status, and earn a degree on their own schedule.”

College Choice is an independent online publication dedicated to helping students and their families find the right college. The company publishes rankings and reviews that make choosing the best college easier, as well as resources to help students get into, pay for and thrive at the college of their choice.
