College Values Online ranked Clarkson College 17th in the nation in the category of most affordable certified nurse anesthetist programs. The ranking was published on the organization's website in September.
This ranking was created using the National Center for Education Statistics' College Navigator database. Among the schools that offered these advanced studies in nursing, the top 30 most affordable schools were selected and ranked based on net price, including tuition and fees.
“The Nurse Anesthesia program continually strives to offer quality in our program while ensuring value for our students,” said Jayne Cromer, Clarkson College Nurse Anesthesia Program Director.
Nebraska's first health care education institution, Clarkson College is a private, non-profit college in Omaha, offering undergraduate, graduate, and professional programs designed to prepare individuals for both entry-level and highly advanced roles in various health care disciplines.
"Clarkson College retains a rich history of unmatched academic excellence in health care education," said Dr. Louis Burgher, Clarkson College President. "We have evolved with the health care community to continually prepare our students to be the best, and our results demonstrate that. While focusing on quality, we have not forgotten about cost. It is extremely rewarding to be recognized for having one of the most affordable nurse anesthetist programs in the country."
With class sizes limited to just 12 students, the Clarkson College nurse anesthesia program ensures that each student's educational experience is optimized. The program is full-time and front loaded, beginning with a 12-month, on-campus didactic phase, followed by an 18-month clinical practicum. Read more about the program.
