Baker University’s School of Nursing was recently named the No. 2 school for nursing education in Kansas by RegisteredNursing.org, landing ahead of 32 other schools including the University of Kansas and Washburn University.

The 2018 edition is the second annual ranking of nursing programs in Kansas by RegisteredNursing.org, which analyzes past and present first-time National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX) pass rates in addition to assessing how well a program supports students in obtaining their licensure and beyond. The evaluation methodology included pass rate data available for the past five years. Pass rates were then averaged and weighted by the recency of the exam.

Baker University’s School of Nursing was founded in 1991 and is housed at StormontVail Health in Topeka, Kansas. It offers a Bachelor of Science in Nursing, and the online Master of Science in Nursing offers tracks in nursing education and nursing administration.
