Best Value Schools recently honored Alderson Broaddus University as one of the best 50 Value Colleges for a Nursing Degree 2015.

ABU, which received the No. 47 ranking, is one of only two West Virginia schools named to the list.

“Being named among the top 50 universities as an affordable and flexible program in the field of nursing is validation that the affordability initiatives of the university are working,” Joan Propst, provost/executive vice president for academic affairs, said. “Alderson Broaddus University is a leader in health care and, specifically, our nursing graduates are very highly sought by regional and national agencies who are concerned about quality nursing care. We are honored by this recognition and will continue to work to provide the highest quality education in nursing in fulfillment of our mission.”

ABU first implemented an affordability initiative in 2011. The program included frozen fees, time-to-degree completion and capping student loans. These concepts helped decrease the amount of debt students faced after graduation.

ABU began its four-year nursing program in 1945 and it remains a popular major at the university. In addition to the bachelor in nursing degree, students can also do the Licensed Practical Nurse to Bachelor of Science in Nursing program or the Registered Nurse to Bachelor of Science in Nursing program.
