Stan State Earns Two EDsmart Top 10 Rankings

Stanislaus State continues to receive regional and national accolades for its university programs, with EDsmart being the most recent organization to include the university in two of its rankings.

Nationally recognized college resource publisher EDsmart has ranked Stan State as the #1 Best Accelerated Nursing and BSN Program in the Nation and #4 Best Colleges on the West Coast in 2022.

EDsmart’s 2022 ranking of the best accelerated nursing and BSN programs is the most comprehensive and comprehensive yet. The rankings, which include only fully accredited schools, are based on affordability, academic quality, student satisfaction, and post-graduation earnings according to data from the US Department of Education.

The Accelerated Nursing and BSN programs are designed for registered nurses already working in healthcare but wishing to obtain a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN). It offers an alternative route to earning a BSN for registered nurses with an associate degree in nursing.

ED also included Stan State at No. 4 on its 2022 list of top West Coast colleges.

“These schools have numerous rankings, prestigious professors and are committed to innovative research,” according to a press release announcing the ranking, which also considered affordability as a factor. “These schools are ideal for students, working professionals, or those who need specialized training to advance their careers.”

Over the years, Stanislaus State has consistently ranked in prestigious rankings, including US News & World Report, Washington Monthly, and The Princeton Review.
