Baker University’s BSN program has been ranked No. 2 in the state by RegisteredNursing.org, a nursing advocacy organization.
Nursing programs are assessed on how well a program supports students toward licensure and beyond. RegisteredNursing.org is dedicated to providing students with the best information to help students make informed decisions about what school is best for them.
With a score of 96.38 out of 100, Baker is only .24 away from No. 1, and is about two points above No. 3. To create these scores, pass-rates for the NCLEX-RN exam, past and present, are analyzed and weighted by year. A detailed methodology report can be found at RegisteredNursing.org.
More than 90 percent of Baker University students pass the NCLEX on the first try. This percentage is higher than the national and state averages.
Baker University partners with Stormont Vail Health in Topeka, Kansas to offer students a robust curriculum. This partnership creates immersive student experiences including clinical work, simulation labs, first-hand observations, and international service opportunities. Students gain skills that make them job candidates even before graduation.
In 2019, Baker University’s Bachelor of Science in Nursing program was ranked No. 1 in Kansas and among the top nursing programs nationally, according to RN Careers, which publishes a guide for prospective nursing students.
Gretchen Boxberger, a senior nursing student, said, “I feel I am becoming extremely prepared for my licensure exam (NCLEX) and also to go out into the real world with all of the clinical experiences we get in different fields!”
