Nursing Schools in Missouri

There are 84 nursing schools in Missouri. This year, we evaluated 51 schools NCLEX pass rates and net prices, and our ranking system identified the following schools as the best value schools.

The calculation we used here takes into account a school's NCLEX pass rate and the net price of attendance for a student who received the average amount of financial aid. The higher the NCLEX pass rate of the program, and the lower the cost, the better the return on investment.

Learn more about our nursing schools ranking methodology 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!
