The Spring Hill College Nursing Division has been awarded another number one ranking as the top Bachelor of Science of Nursing (BSN) program in the state of Alabama.
RNCareers.org, in its 6th annual nursing school report, gave top ranking to the nursing program and said, “Spring Hill College ranked #1 in Alabama and is one of the best nursing schools in the nation, with an impressive average NCLEX first-time passing rate of 96.78% for the ranking period over last three years. Out of over 1,700 schools examined, Spring Hill College nursing school ranked #77 nationally.” The rankings also took into consideration the number of students taking the test, the program nursing accreditation and more.

“I am so pleased that our Division, our faculty and our students have been recognized for their hard work and commitment to the nursing profession. It’s an honor to continue to receive these state and national awards and shows that our students are being educated to become the best possible nurses,” said Kathy Sheppard, PhD, chairperson of the College’s Division of Nursing. “Nurses are the backbone of our healthcare system. I am grateful that RNCareers.org has acknowledged that Spring Hill College is successfully preparing our nursing students.”
Spring Hill College President E.

We are proud of the Division’s faculty, staff and students. Their dedication will be seen and felt in the communities they serve for generations to come.”

For the 6th annual report, RNCareers.org rigorously evaluated nursing schools across the country including first-time NCLEX passing rates for the last 3 years, program accreditation, program offerings, and more.
The Spring Hill College Nursing Division has also been awarded the #1 BSN program in the state of Alabama among all four-year colleges and universities from registerednursing.org.
