U.S. News & World Report lists Clarkson College on its first ever Top Online Nursing Degrees honor roll, which consists of the top five of 458 accredited online graduate nursing programs reviewed.
U.S. News ranked the online Master's or Doctorate of Nursing degree programs in four distinct indicators: student engagement and accreditation, student services and technology, faculty credentials and training, and admissions selectivity. The 458 programs eligible for the rankings had at least 80 percent of their course content available online—a requirement necessary to be ranked on the U.S. News Top Online Nursing Degree Programs. A program made the Top Online Nursing Degrees honor roll if it was ranked in the top one-third of three out of the four indicators.
“We are excited to represent the state of Nebraska as a top-ranked competitor for online Nursing programs,” said Dr. Louis Burgher, President of Clarkson College. “We attribute our success to our unwavering commitment to provide our students with a valuable education they can afford.”
Also on the U.S. News honor roll list with Clarkson College is Drexel University in Philadelphia, Pa., George Washington University in Washington, D.C., Loyola University New Orleans in Louisiana and University of Colorado—Denver Health Sciences Center School of Nursing.

“Clarkson College is pleased to be ranked among and above such nationally renowned institutions,” said Burgher. “This ability to compete at a national level affirms our Mission to prepare our students to professionally provide high quality, ethical and compassionate health care services.”
