SR Education Group, a leading education research publisher founded in 2004, recently named Baker University School of Nursing in both its 2018 Top Online Colleges for Nursing and 2018 Most Affordable Online Colleges for Nursing rankings.

“Baker University’s online Master of Science in Nursing program was developed to meet the needs of the working professional nurse seeking a graduate nursing degree,” said Carol Moore, associate dean of the graduate nursing program. “It builds upon a strong foundation of professional nursing practice, provides an environment of learning dedicated to academic excellence, and prepares the professional nurse for leadership positions in nursing administration or nursing education and future doctoral study.”

The 2018 Top Online Colleges ranking is based on value, taking into account a program’s academic strength in addition to annual tuition rates to determine a school’s value to students. Inclusion on this list reflects high academic standards and a commitment to affordability, two factors important to prospective students. Baker University was ranked 12th in this category, which included accredited institutions across the nation.
