Johns Hopkins, Vanderbilt among most expensive nursing schools in the country

The five most expensive nursing schools in the United States include only one Ivy League name, according to a list compiled by Insider Monkey. Johns Hopkins, Vanderbilt, New York University, University of Washington and Columbia all make the cut, with multiple institutions boasting nursing programs that are among the oldest in the country. Among the claims to fame mentioned in the article are Vanderbilt's "great teaching hospital and its state-of-the-art electronic medical records"; Columbia's offering of nine masters specialties as well as Ph.D and D.N.P programs; and the University of Washington and Johns Hopkins' No. 1 nursing school ranking from U.S. News & World Report. The University of Pennsylvania, which also received a No. 1 ranking, did not make Insider Monkey's list of most expensive nursing schools. Article
