WTAMU Honored for Online RN to BSN Program Affordability

West Texas A&M University has been named as the most affordable online RN to BSN program in the country in a new survey released this week.

It was announced on Monday that WTAMU has been named the number one university for the program in the country in the category of affordability by TopRNtoBSN. In the rankings, WTAMU topped universities from around the country including Texas' Stephen F. Austin State University (#6) and the University of Texas-Arlington (#23).

According to WTAMU, the rankings did not focus only on schools accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education but also "those that cost less than $340 per credit hour, based on online and/or out-of-state cost per credit."
