Nursing Schools in Florida

There are 156 nursing schools in Florida. This year, we evaluated 103 schools, and our ranking system identified the following nursing schools as the best-value schools. Our data-driven ranking system uses the NCLEX pass rates and average net price to calculate the ranks. According to our research, we determined that the NCLEX pass rate of a school has a strong correlation with the quality of education provided by the school. On the other hand, we can easily assess the affordability of the schools by comparing their net price. By combining these two metrics, we managed to create a ranking scale that tells us the return on investment of each school. Learn more about our nursing schools ranking system here

Each school has two separate rankings. One for the RN program and one for the LPN program. Use the Filter By options to see each list. The Sort By button allows you to sort the list by school name, cost, or rank.

If you notice incorrect information or if we are missing a school, please let us know. We greatly appreciate it!
