Quality Overall Is Important

  • Major Demand - The number of registered nursing students who choose to seek a bachelor's degree at the school.
  • Educational Resources - How many resources are allocated to students. These resources may include educational expenditures per student, number of students per instructor, and graduation rate among other things.
