University’s Online RN to BSN Program Ranked No. 4 in U.S.


CANYON, Texas—TopRNtoBSN.com has named West Texas A&M University to its 2017 listing of the 50 Best Online RN to BSN Programs for nursing schools across the country. The WTAMU program is ranked No. 4 and joins only two other Texas programs on the Best 50 list—Sam Houston State University at No. 6 and Lamar University at No. 21.

The rankings are designed to help prospective students explore options and make choices based on tuition costs and job opportunities. All colleges and universities reviewed by TopRNtoBSN.com are regionally accredited, and the nursing programs are accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE), the American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN) or the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing (ACEN). WTAMU’s program is fully accredited by CCNE and meets educational standards and requirements for the Texas Board of Nursing. All the programs reviewed also are ranked by U.S. News & World Report for added reputability.

“We are extremely proud of the hard work our faculty and students are doing in the RN to BSN program,” Dr. Helen Reyes, head of the Department of Nursing, said. “It is our desire that through this program we can not only improve the quality of health in our region and beyond, but help to reach our goal of increasing the number of BSN nurses in the workforce.”

The TopRNtoBSN.com listing describes the WTAMU program as one that gives students the opportunity to progress in the profession, take on leadership roles and work in high-paying specializations. WTAMU offers a low tuition rate as well as a Special Tuition Rebate for qualifying Texas nurses to make WTAMU’s online BSN program an even greater deal.
