The Research College of Nursing is located in Kansas City, Missouri, which is one of the largest cities in the entire state. Kansas City has a population of 464,310 and is a major metropolitan area. The city has a major jazz influence and is known for its local jazz coffee shops. The city has also built an extensive parks and boulevard system that includes more than 214 urban parks. For students in the area, there is more than enough around in order to get away on a weekend. Spending free time in Kansas City has never been a problem.

The Research College of Nursing is a small institution, but it is very well known as a leader in its field. There are 10 students for every faculty member, a good ratio even for a smaller college. The college offers courses for both graduates and undergraduates, making it more versatile than most nursing schools in the country which simply offer two year associate’s degrees. There are four course offerings for students:

  • Clinical Nurse Leader
  • Executive Nurse Practice
  • Nurse Educator
  • Nurse Family Practitioner

Because of the competitiveness of the college and its offerings in both undergraduate and graduate studies, the cost of admissions is high. In 2012, that cost was listed at $27,350. Total enrollment was listed at 550, which is bigger than other comparable nursing schools. If you are interested in attending Research College of Nursing, the application fee is $25. Students cannot receive federal aid such as Pell grants because the college is not in the federal system, but the school offers many of its own financial aid programs that help students to cover the costs of attendance.
