Our Mission

NurseJournal.org's mission is to create the largest social community for educating, informing, and sharing information among nurses from around the world.

About Us

There is no question that the field of nursing is one of the most exciting, rewarding, and in-demand professions in America today. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the employment for all registered nursing will grow by 12% from 2018-2028, which is much faster than average when compared to other occupations.

Nurses crave a sense of community and to explore information from trusted resources. Whether it's finding ways to cope with stress on the job, learning about new technologies in healthcare, or finding information about going back to nursing school, nurses understand each other better than anyone else. That's why we feature their content so prominently. If you are interested in becoming a nurse, NurseJournal.org is the place to educate yourself about this dynamic healthcare field.

Here are just a few of the topics Nurse Journal features:

  • Nursing Schools – We feature over 2000 different nursing schools across the U.S. Both campus and online programs some with no GRE required. Some schools pay to featured their programs with us.
  • Nursing Specialties – Discover all the different nursing specialties that can earn you a more rewarding career and a higher paycheck
  • Nursing Degrees – Bachelor’s master’s associates, nursing diploma, nursing practitioner, nurse anesthetist and more.
  • Licensing Requirements by State – Every state has its own set of nurse licensing requirements. Learn all the details here for your state.

As an important education partner to nursing students and nurses, we are dedicated to providing solid, unbiased, data-driven content, editorial independence, and transparency regarding how we generate revenue.

How Our Site Generates Revenue

We operate much like a traditional magazine, whereby advertisements help supplement editorial efforts. Such editorial efforts help us to attract more readers. Our website features over 2,000 schools in all 50 states around the country. Some of those schools advertise on our website. Where advertised schools appear on our website, they will be clearly labeled as an "ad" or "advertising disclosure," and we may receive compensation from those schools.

Some schools have also paid to have a featured profile on a page that may also include rankings. Our website does not provide, nor intend to provide, a comprehensive list of all schools in the United States, all schools located in a specific geographic area, or all schools that offer a particular program of study.

How We Maintain Editorial Independence

Our experts, writers, and editors follow rigorous editorial standards, and editorial content on our site is never influenced by the schools we advertise. We publish many annual rankings reports, including Top Social Media-Friendly Hospitals, Top Social Media-Friendly Nursing Schools, and America's Best Nursing Schools. All rankings reports are compiled to bring awareness to the institutions and organizations that are integral to the field of nursing.

Promotional materials and other school-specific information included on our websites are generally provided by or approved by the schools themselves. We do not, and disclaim any assertion or allegation that we do, independently verify the information provided by the schools. We rely on the schools that advertise with us to substantiate claims they make regarding their programs including claims relating to the quality of their programs, the courses they offer, enrollment requirements, availability of financial aid, tuition rates and graduation rates.

Rankings Reports

You can rest assured that our guides and rankings are unbiased, with data used to evaluate the schools compiled from reputable sources such as the National Center for Education Statistics. Once we compile this data, we use our own methodology to evaluate factors such as program costs, plus admission and retention rates. We do not accept payment from schools to appear in any of our official rankings, and schools that we advertise do not receive preferential treatment in any of our rankings. Schools included in any of our rankings are nationally or regionally accredited.

Getting Articles Published

If you have an article you would like to have published that other nurse-minded people would like to read or if you would like to share something unique about your profession, NurseJournal.org provides paid publishing opportunities for nurses and healthcare professionals. All articles are published, promoted, and paid for by NurseJournal.org. We have many authors in our community who contribute regularly.

How We Give Back

With a portion of all site revenue, we're able to operate the following programs:

  • Scholarships. NurseJournal.org is powered by a collective community of nurses. The other power behind the site is by PayForCollege.org. PayForCollege.org is an organization owned by TrafficWorx, Inc. created to help fund higher education opportunities through student scholarships worldwide. This means a portion of the revenue generated through our website (Sponsored/Featured Schools + Google Adsense) allows us to give back to future generations of nursing students through our Global Health Nursing Scholarship. Without revenue, we simply couldn't help change the lives of future students.
  • Paid Publishing. NurseJournal.org also provides paid publishing opportunities for nurses and healthcare professionals. All articles are published, promoted, and paid for by NurseJournal.org. We have many authors in our community who contribute regularly.
  • Interview Program. NurseJournal.org operates an interview program whereby any school can discuss the details of their available programs. This provides our student community with insight not available anywhere else online. This program is absolutely free. Benefits include increased brand awareness of the school, mission, and commitment to nursing, as well as potential new students and visitors via a direct link to their website. These interviews also provide our website with great original content. To participate in our interview program, please complete the form below.
