The Georgia Southern University School of Nursing in the College of Health and Human Sciences has been ranked No.10 as one of the most affordable online colleges for a nurse practitioner (NP) degree in 2017 by OnlineU.

“Our graduate degree and post-master’s certificate programs are 95 percent online and allow for the flexibility that working nurses need to advance their education,” said program coordinator Ursula Pritham, Ph.D., WHNP-BC, FNP-BC.

Focus for the review was placed on schools that provide students seeking a variety of healthcare degrees with economical options to obtain higher education. The School of Nursing currently offers certificate- and doctoral-level nurse practitioner programs.

School rankings were based on the level of degree requirements, available degrees, tuition rates, whether programs were offered online, and program coursework.
