After assessing 33 Iowa nursing programs RegisteredNursing.org, -a nursing advocacy organization- named Graceland University’s BSN as the #1 program in the state.   

In an effort to make the nursing school selection process more manageable, RegisterdNursing.org identifies schools that support students through licensure and beyond and evaluates them on NCLEX-RN exam pass rates, average program length, educational partnerships, and more. Graceland University was praised for its small class sizes, innovative lab and clinical placements, and caring faculty.  

When asked about this impressive achievement, Nursing Department Chair and Assistant Professor of Nursing Elise Hector said, “I am excited that our program has received this recognition because our faculty has worked so hard to update the curriculum to best meet students’ needs during a difficult time. This is an excellent chance to see that our program provides high-quality nursing education that is valuable to the modern nursing student.” 

The Graceland University School of Nursing offers nursing degrees from the bachelor to doctoral level.
