    Many of my friends have graduated from there, I did too for my business degree.

    There programs are fully approved by the BON in California.

    I am not in a position to pay that kind of tuition or take out loans. I am looking into Cal State Dominguez Hills. It is also fully on-line and has many MSN programs. If you are a California resident, it is MUCH less expensive!

    Janey as a mother of 5 with 4 already in college, I could not afford U of P either. In Ohio they just opened a local branch which is less than 4 miles from my home. Good luck. I ended up getting my BS/MS from another college, different degree.

    I did the UofP MSN (concentration management and leadership) and graduated in May 05. It is fully accredited and I am currently pursuing a post-masters' APN without any problems.

    I just went to my information meeting for Cal State Dominguez Hills last night and will be starting their MSN Educator program in the spring. It is all on-line (except for clinicals!) and is $900-$1200 a semester depending how many units I take. It is a straight $225 a unit for out of state students in their National program. I am very excited. It will take me a little longer as I have a BA in something other than nursing and have to take some BSN classes as well to satisfy the PHN certificate. I plan to be nursing faculty.

    TraumaRUs,
    I'm just curious to know if you're doing post-master's online, too. If so, how is it?

    Sorta. I'm doing the clinical nurse specialist through my hospital's College of Nursing. I only had to do five classes (all clinicals). Each class has four meetings - so once a month, I actually attend classes (located at the College which is attached to our hospital). Its really a neat program. The required clinical/practicum is 576 hours and so far, I have done 376 hours since July. I really know the advanced practice nurse was the right direction for me.
