Once again, College Factual thinks pretty highly of Penn and the nursing school is the reason why this time.

College Factual ranked Penn as the No. 5 school to get a nursing degree. The rankings are based on graduate's earning power with Penn nursing students getting $63,000 at the entry level on average and $87,000 by mid-career.

Penn was placed behind four schools as Columbia was named the top school for a nursing degree. NYU, Georgetown and Malloy College round out the top four. Neighboring Drexel ranked No. 9 while California at No. 6 was the only school outside of the northeast to make the top 10. 

Here's the full list and reasons why each made the list from USA Today.
