Nursing schools in Missouri have seen an increase in applicants from previous years, which is a great sign considering Missouri is suffering from a shortage of nurses across the state. There are more nursing students in Missouri nursing programs right now than there had been in previous years. Unfortunately, Missouri nursing schools are turning away or placing on waitlists hundreds of well qualified nursing school applicants because there are not enough nursing faculty to train students. 

This is not a reason to be discouraged. Numerous nursing organizations have in the state and nationally are working to increase class sizes, increase the number of faculty and increase the number of clinical locations. Learn more about becoming a Registered Nurse in Missouri.

Online Nursing Schools in Missouri

We have made it our goal to help meet the rising demand for nurses by offering CCNE (Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education) accredited online nursing programs in Missouri. Qualified registered nurse applicants will not be waitlisted or turned away. The cost per credit is comparable to other Missouri nursing schools and the schedules are flexible to fit your work/education/life balance.  An advanced nursing education has become more important in alleviating the nursing shortage recently since most Missouri hospitals and health care companies are now seeking nurses with baccalaureate degrees in nursing. Our nursing schools offer LPN to BSN, RN to BSN, RN to MSN and a variety of MSN specialty degrees. The University of Phoenix School of Nursing offers an online nursing health care education certificate for those looking to bridge their clinical experience into teaching.
