Try the University of Phoenix. http://www.phoenix.edu.
I am currently enrolled in their online MSN program. Since 4/00, I have received 14 grad credits. The program fits my needs so well, as I work full-time and have a family. The school has a variety of programs, so it might be worth your while to check it out. It is intense, however, since 3 credits courses run for only 6 weeks. It is during this six weeks that you are required to participant in the main classroom 5 out of 7 days, write individual and group projects. Yes, I said group. It can be cumbersome, but very doable. The student must enjoy computers, be relatively computer literate, and be self-disciplined. For tech problems, a Tech Support service is available around the clock, so that if you are working at three in the morning, someone is there to answer any questions you might have and help you to troubleshoot. One of the great advantages is that you can attend class in your P.J.'s or whatever!!! :-)).
