Sinclair College’s Nursing Program Ranked #1 out of 107 Programs in Ohio

 DAYTON, OH – A recent study conducted by, a source for prospective students to review all nursing programs in the United States, ranked Sinclair College’s Nursing Program #1 out of a total of 107 schools that were evaluated in the state of Ohio.

The study looked at data from the following sources:

  • US Department of Education
  • States Board of Nursing
  • Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE)
  • Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing, Inc. (ACEN)

Rankings are calculated based on the National Council Licensure Exam (NCLEX) pass rate and the average net price of the program. The higher the NCLEX pass rate and the lower the cost of the program, the greater the “return on investment” and the higher the program ranking. The results of the study revealed that Sinclair’s Nursing Program was the most affordable in Ohio (out of the 107 schools evaluated) with a NCLEX pass rate of 80.7%. 

NCLEX pass rate is the percentage of students who pass the NCLEX out of the total number of students who take the exam in a given year.

The average net price is the amount of money paid by students out of pocket after financial aid.

“Sinclair’s Nursing program has extremely dedicated faculty who ensure graduates are highly-prepared for their credentialing exam (NCLEX) and an administration and Board of Trustees that values being affordable and accessible,” said Rena Shuchat, Health Sciences Dean at Sinclair College. “We are so pleased to be ranked number one among 107 Ohio nursing programs, based on our credentialing scores and low tuition rates, providing students and the community with such a valuable program”.
