CANYON, Texas— has named West Texas A&M University No. 1 in the country for affordability on its 2018 listing of the 50 Most Affordable Online RN to BSN Programs for nursing schools. The WTAMU program joins only two other Texas programs on the Top 50 list: Stephen F. Austin State University at No. 6 and the University of Texas-Arlington at No. 23.

The rankings were designed to help prospective students explore options and make choices based on tuition costs and flexibility. TopRNtoBSN editors looked at the top 50 most affordable programs in the country and focused not only on schools accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education but also those that cost less than $340 per credit hour, based on online and/or out-of-state cost per credit.
