EKU Online Nursing Degrees Among Best Graduate Programs

The EKU Online Nursing Degree program is among the top 20 online degree programs in the United States based on student feedback submitted to SR Education Group. The EKU Department of Baccalaureate and Graduate Nursing ranks #18 in the nation for online nursing degrees.

The organization’s list of “Top Graduate Schools for 2016,” is unique. In addition todata collected from the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) -- such as tuition, accreditation and graduation rates – the “Top Graduate Schools” ranking incorporates student surveys.

One EKU Online Nursing student wrote, “The program's best features are ease of accessibility; availability of staff and IT to answer questions and provide support; the flexibility of the program; and the sufficient but not overwhelming workload.”

EKU Online Nursing degree programs provide students with:

  • A CCNE-accredited program
  • Coursework incorporating the standards of the American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN), including evidence-based practice and interprofessional nursing communication and collaboration
  • Faculty who are nursing experts and continue to practice
  • Dedicated advisors and instructors who work with them from application through graduation

Although online nursing programs scored highest, morethan 90 percent of students who evaluated any graduate degree at Eastern Kentucky University said they would recommend their program of study. They ranked the school particularly high when considering program quality and their overall satisfaction with their degree.
