Oct. 19, 2022
FLORENCE, AL – The University of North Alabama has been named one of the best schools for online higher education in healthcare by EduMed.org. UNA’s online programs in the medical field earned top honors for their overall quality, affordability, and commitment to student success.
“We are honored by the prestigious ranking published by EDUMed.org,” said Dr. Tera Kirkman, Interim Dean of the Anderson College of Nursing and Health Professions. “The ranking affirms the consistent student-centered, evidenced-based, and compassionate instruction faculty embed into all programs. ACONHP faculty care deeply about the success of our students and the future of health care. We recognize the ever-changing nature of healthcare, and we believe our students play a vital role in enhancing healthcare quality.”
UNA ranked among the categories below:
- Best Online Nursing Programs in Alabama
- Best Online Bachelor’s Degrees in Health Science
- Most Affordable Online MSN Programs
“Our rankings showcase the schools giving future nurses and allied health professionals the best chance to succeed from day one in the classroom to day one on the job,” said Wes Harris, outreach coordinator for EduMed.org. “This starts with low-cost tuition, but also includes academic counseling, career placement, and other key resources that students need to graduate and get hired.”
EduMed.org researched and analyzed more than 7,700 accredited schools using data from the Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS) and from the schools themselves. To be eligible, a school must have active regional accreditation and have at least one partially online program in the ranking subject. Just eight percent of U.S. postsecondary institutions earned a ranking position.
