In 2014, Louisiana Tech University Nursing program ranked # 21 out of the top 100 Nursing programs in the nation by CollegeAtlas A-List rankings. These rankings reward Nursing programs at colleges and universities for affordability, accessibility, academic quality and NCLEX pass rate. One of the heaviest factors in the A-List calculation is the quality of education offered at each university. The academic quality calculation considers an institution's categorization and rank published in the annual U.S. News Best Colleges rankings. This takes into account a significant number of factors and is generally considered the gold standard for college rankings emphasizing academic quality and reputation
