Our site is fully committed to editorial integrity and transparency. We understand the importance of accurate, unbiased content for prospective nurses, and we strive to assist nursing students and job-seeking graduates during every step of their educational journey. NurseJournal.org holds its editors, writers, and fact-finders to the highest standards of journalistic excellence and balanced presentation of facts.

Please note this is not a medical website. If you have questions for a licensed nurse or physician, or you are experiencing a medical emergency, please contact your doctor or call 9-1-1.

How We Make Money

NurseJournal.org provides students with information about degrees and schools, and it helps match them with different programs based on their needs and preferences. Our site generates revenue through advertisements for degrees and programs from certain schools. These institutions may pay us for student referrals whenever a site visitor uses the program search tool or interacts with advertisements located throughout the site.

We understand the importance of differentiating between advertisements and unbiased editorial content. To minimize confusion for our readers, all advertisements are clearly labeled as such. Every guide and ranking on the site is free to access. Furthermore, we use a comprehensive ranking methodology to evaluate each college and university. Doing so ensures our advertising relationships never influence our editorial content.
