There's many good nursing schools in every state, you just need to do your homework on them. Compile a list of nursing programs that you are interested in, and then research each one. Look at their accredidation, retention rate, NCLEX pass rate, ect. Doing your homework on any potential school you plan to invest your time and money into is vital before making a decision on where to attend.

I don't know about "best." Are you looking for prestige or the absolute best training you can find?

One bit of information -- the US News rankings are for Graduate programs in nursing. There is no national ranking for undergraduate or pre-licensure nursing programs.

I suggest you look for good school in your state and go from there......get the fundamentals then think about advanced/graduate programs.

To start with, are you looking in-state or relocating if the opportunity presents itself?
