2020 Best Online Master's Degrees in Nursing (MSN)

Best Online Master

We ranked the best 25 schools that offer at least one online Master of Science in Nursing program. Schools are ranked based on the median monthly salary of students who graduate with an MSN from each school, minus the students’ median monthly debt payment. The schools on this list offer MSN degree programs in specialties like Nursing Education, Nursing Administration, and Advanced Practice Registered Nursing. Some schools also offer MSN degrees in Nurse Anesthesia, though COA-accredited CRNA master’s programs are being transitioned to doctoral programs by 2022.

Median salaries and median monthly debt payments were reported by the U.S. Department of Education. View our methodology for more details about our rankings.
