EduMed.org has ranked the nation’s top colleges and universities for online learning in nursing and allied health for the 2023-2024 school year. Just six percent of U.S. regionally accredited institutions earned a ranking position.
RENO, Nev., Oct. 26, 2023 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — EduMed.org, a leader in student-focused college and career information online, has released its rankings of the top postsecondary schools for online degrees and certificates in nursing and allied health. The rankings feature schools with the best combinations of quality, affordability and online learning in their respective fields. The rankings include more than 65 unique subject areas, from practical and registered nursing to medical assisting and healthcare administration.
“The EduMed rankings highlight schools that put student success first,” said Wes Ricketts, founder of EduMed.org. “This includes the colleges and universities making degree programs accessible, flexible and affordable, all three of which can be rare in today’s higher education landscape.”
EduMed’s rankings come at a time when the demand for trained healthcare professionals is on the rise. According to Mercer, a global consulting leader in healthcare, the U.S. will see millions of vacancies in critical healthcare positions by 2025, including openings for registered nurses, nurse practitioners, nursing assistants, home health aides and more.
“With so many job opportunities on the horizon, the right career services are a must,” said Ricketts. “The top schools in our rankings offer career counseling and/or career placement to help students land key positions in some of today’s most important healthcare fields.”
EduMed.org researched and analyzed more than 7,700 accredited schools using data from the Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS) and from the schools themselves. The website’s data science team then applied a proprietary algorithm to rank all qualifying schools for each healthcare discipline. Primary data points include:
- Academic counseling services
- Career placement services
- Student-to-faculty ratio
- Percent of students receiving school-based financial aid
- Amount of school-based aid per student
To be eligible for ranking consideration, a school must hold active regional accreditation and have at least one partially online program in the ranking subject.
