Truman Nursing was recognized by Colleges of Distinction as one of the top programs in the state. Criteria for inclusion on the list includes: national accreditation; a requirement students engage in residency or clinical work; a high percentage of students who regularly pass standardized exams such as the NCLEX and HESI; high-impact experiences for students; institutional connections that provide students with multifaceted career options; and liberal arts exposure to help ensure students develop their problem solving, critical and out-of-the-box thinking skills, practice leadership and understand a variety of worldviews and perspectives. Only four programs were recognized for Missouri.

Truman was recognized as one of the Best Mid-sized Colleges for Finding a Job according to the career website Zippia. Using information found on the Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS), Zippia searched for colleges in each state with an enrollment level between 5,000-19,999. Those schools were cross-referenced with data from College Scorecard to find the highest listed job placement ratings, looking at employment levels 10 years after students graduated. Truman’s rate of 94.30 percent was tops in the category for schools in Missouri.
