How We Came Up With The Rankings
The Rankings for the Online Masters in Health Care were based on selecting Master’s degree programs where students can earn their degree online. We selected programs that were either 100 percent online or ones that had hybrid programs where a significant portion of the curriculum could be obtained online. We also included accredited programs and online programs that offered the same courses as the campus-based curriculum. Other considerations were the quality of the health care program and if the programs or the college were ranked/mentioned by publications such as U.S. News and World Report, Princeton Review and other prestigious publications. Health care programs that had faculty that were health care practitioners or had courses that were developed or recommended by health care professionals were also used to develop the rankings.
