“Once again our RN to MSN program is recognized for providing our students an academically challenging program at an affordable price. Our commitment to educating nursing students so that they can offer the best quality medical care to the patients they serve is being noticed around the country,” said Dr. Debra Townsley, president of Wheeling Jesuit University.

BestMedicalDegrees.com reported Wheeling Jesuit offers a fully accredited RN to MSN degree program geared for working nurses.

“Wheeling Jesuit University’s online program combines liberal arts and nursing courses designed specifically for nurses who hold either a diploma or associates degree in nursing. Students may complete 11 credit hours of the curriculum by either transferring credits from another accredited school; or, by completing ‘challenge tests’ in anatomy, microbiology, physiology and chemistry rather than in coursework. Students will also study development psychology, nursing theories, concepts of nursing practice, complex care and multi-system nursing care,” BestMedicalDegrees.com noted about WJU’s program.

“This ranking reinforces that we offer an affordable RN to MSN program that provides students an academically rigorous curriculum from faculty dedicated – a faculty which is committed to personalized instruction and student success,” said Maryanne Capp, director of WJU’s Nursing program.

Recently, three of WJU’s master’s nursing programs were recognized by SR Education Group and BestMastersDegrees.com.

SR Education Group named WJU’s nurse practitioner program (FNP) as the 23rd best online FNP program and the 21st most affordable program in the nation.

BestMastersDegrees.com ranked the 30 most affordable private college nursing education master’s programs and listed WJU’s as 18th best in the country. The online ranking service also chose WJU’s RN to MSN online program the 32nd most affordable nationally.
