This is a press release from William Carey University.
HATTIESBURG, Miss. - William Carey University is ranked as having one of the nation’s most affordable online nursing programs. Best Degree Programs ranked Carey’s online RN to BSN nursing program as #6 on the list of 30 most affordable programs at private universities.
Earning a bachelor’s degree in nursing from an accredited institution often increases earning potential for registered nurses. The Bureau of Labor Statistics reports a 20 percent expected employment increase over the next five years, which means nurses with advanced degrees like a BSN will be in demand.
“Many working registered nurses do not have time to return to the traditional classroom,” said Dr. Karen Sicard, dean of the Joseph and Nancy Fail School of Nursing. “Our RN-BSN program is completely online, making it convenient for working professionals who want to continue their education.”
The 30 credit hours of nursing courses for the Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree can be completed in 12 months, and there is no chemistry requirement.
“The tuition for the nursing portion of the courses is $8,500, making our program very competitive with other schools around the country,” said Sicard.
William Carey University does not charge out-of-state tuition. To determine the rankings, Best Degree Programs reviewed 158 accredited private colleges and universities listed by the National Center for Education Statistics College Navigator that offer online bachelor’s in nursing or online RN-BSN degree programs. From the list, they selected schools with an undergraduate tuition under $25,000 per year and ranked the 30 most affordable programs at private colleges.
