Radford University BSN program ranked as best in Virginia by nursingprocess.org


The Radford University Bachelor of Science in Nursing programs have been ranked as the best BSN programs in the state of Virginia by nursingprocess.org, an educational resource that is dedicated to providing information that is accurate, reliable and backed by extensive research for those interested in earning degrees in nursing.

According to nursingprocess.org, the organization gathered a list of all nursing schools offering BSN programs in every state and then ranked them based on the following three factors:

  • Average NCLEX-RN first-time pass rates of recent five years (40% of overall score).
  • Academic quality — enrollment, graduation and retention rates (30% of overall score).
  • Nursingprocess.org editorial staff ratings and nursing school reputation (30% of overall score).

The data required for the rankings was gathered from IPEDs, state board of nursing websites, U.S. News & World Report, Niche, Grad Reports, Rate My Professors and the official school websites.

The ranking information on nursingprocess.org’s website highlights that U.S. News & World Report cited Radford’s BSN programs as some of the best in the country.

“This ranking is a testament to our School of Nursing faculty and staff’s commitment to quality education and focus on individual students,” said Johnnie Sue Wijewardane, Ph.D., dean of the Radford University School of Nursing. “Our students interact daily with committed faculty who demonstrate a passion for educating nurses and for mentoring nursing students and graduates as they transition into practice and beyond. These meaningful interactions with faculty and our exceptional clinical partners provide our students with a first-class nursing education experience.”

The full list of the 2021 BSN programs in every state is available on the nursingprocess.org website.
