“As one of the top online nursing programs of its kind in New York, we’re proud of how our students and alums make a real difference in the lives of people every day,” said Cheryl Nosek, professor and department chair of Daemen’s Nursing Department.

“What sets Daemen apart is that our faculty supports our students to ensure their success, above all—by being available to meet one-on-one, either in person or virtually, depending on their needs,” added Nosek. 

Only Molloy College in Rockville Centre and Roberts Wesleyan College in Rochester ranked ahead of Daemen, which bested SUNY Delhi and The College at Brockport, among others. 

In the rankings, Daemen’s nursing degree stood out for being available both fully online and hybrid formats (combination of online and on-campus classes). 

Registered Nursing also mentioned the Center for Interprofessional Learning and Simulation (CILS) as a valuable resource that provides students experiential learning opportunities to promote best practices and collaboration among healthcare professionals.

Rankings were also based on graduation rates, online program options and accreditations, among other data, which was obtained from the Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS), National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), U.S. Department of Education’s Office of Postsecondary Education (OPE) and the Council for Community and Economic Research.
