TopRNtoBSN has published its 2016 listing of the Top 50 Residential BSN Programs. We are pleased to let you know that California State University-Stanislaus was ranked #31 overall. You can learn more about the award and view the ranking in its entirety at rankings were designed to help prospective students make choices based on the things they care about most. In order to calculate our rankings, we began by considering schools accredited by CCNE that offer accelerated programs. We then determined the following values a) the “net cost,” b) the graduation rate for the school, and c) the admission selectivity as reported by the U.S. Department of Education. The three scores (converted to “z-scores” for the purposes of comparison) were then averaged. Each of these measures were equally weighted and were derived from data maintained by the National Center for Education Statistics.

At TopRNtoBSN we are committed to helping people make informed decisions about their education. In this ranking we sought to highlight programs that have good reputations, support students in their studies, and provide a good economic value. We are confident that students will find all of these qualities at California State University-Stanislaus.
