Two of Northwest Technical College’s online nursing degree options have been ranked among the best in the nation.
EduMed ranked the programs in fifth place of “Most Affordable Online Nursing Programs for 2021.”
EduMed recognized the college’s 64-credit one-year LPN Step-In program, which trains LPNs to RNs, as well as the college’s generic Associate of Science in nursing, offered as a two-year program for students with no previous nursing experience and prepares graduates for their RN license.
Both programs are offered in a hybrid/online format and include standard lecture courses, on-campus labs, and in-person clinical rotation experiences. Graduates of either program are eligible to take the NCLEX-RN exam for RN licensure.
The college’s fifth-place ranking by EduMed was based on a mix of affordability, support services, and online program availability metrics. Affordability metrics received the heaviest weightings.
