Grantham’s Nursing Degree Program Ranked in Top 10

Lenexa, Kan., June 10, 2019 — Grantham University, an online university, announced today that its nursing program was named a Top 10 Online Nursing Degree Program by MedicalFieldCareers.com. Programs were ranked on online availability, overall tuition, graduation rate, career counseling, financial aid availability, and nights and weekend availability.

“With the need for effective, well-qualified nurses continuing to rise, Grantham is pleased to provide a quality program that will graduate nurses who are fully prepared for the increasing demands of the profession,” said Cheryl Rules, Ph.D., dean of Grantham’s College of Nursing and Allied Health. “Our recent accreditation by the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing (ACEN) is further evidence of the excellence of our program.”

Rules attributes the MedicalFieldCareers.com ranking to Grantham’s 68-year experience in serving those whose busy lives demand a high level of flexibility in education. Grantham’s online delivery, monthly starts, no set login times and in-depth student support demonstrate this expertise. Most significantly, Grantham has one of the lowest tuition rates nationwide1.

“Our online nursing program is particularly effective since many nurses are already juggling work and family, but also want to advance their career by furthering their education,” said Rules. “The ability to study on your own schedule is, in many cases, the only way to achieve that goal.”
