Jacksonville University ranked 20th in Best Online Nursing Master’s Programs for Veterans and was the only Florida school to be included in the category. US News ranked Jacksonville University 66th overall in Best Online Master’s in Nursing Program.

To qualify for the Veterans ranking, Jacksonville University first had to appear on the overall list, according to the US News ranking methodology. To appear on that list, the University had to perform well on several factors, including program reputation, faculty credentials, retention rates and graduate debt loads, to earn its qualifying Best Online Programs rank.

Programs included in the veterans-focused rankings, such as Jacksonville University’s, must be certified for the GI Bill, participate in the Yellow Ribbon Program, and have at least 10 veterans enrolled in the program.

The online master of science in nursing (MSN) degree at Jacksonville University provides the same high-quality education and curriculum offered to traditional classroom-based students. It also offers those in the nursing profession a flexible and adaptive chance to advance their careers. The median salary for Jacksonville University’s online MSN graduates in 2019 was $75,000, and 96 percent were employed within one year of graduation, according to data from the Career Resource Center.
