UCF has been ranked in the top 10 on Value Colleges' list of the Top 50 Best Value Online MSN Programs of 2015.

Colleges nationwide were ranked on Value Colleges' MSN list by students' average early-career salary, real tuition costs and the school's national ranking on U.S. News & World Report.

"Ranked in the top 25 online nursing schools by U.S. News & World Report, as well as a best choice for veterans, the University of Central Florida College of Nursing offers high-quality online MSN degrees. ... But with affordable tuition rates and a strong job market in Florida, UCF’s online MSN is a great value in an educational investment," according to the Value Colleges website.

Trailing behind Stony Brook University as No.1 on the list, UCF's online graduate nursing program took 6th and was noted on the website for its focus on non-clinical studies, as well as being located in a state that has a high demand for nurses.

Other Florida universities that made the list were Nova Southeastern University at No. 44, and Florida State University at No. 50.
