    Hi Carrob!
    My hospital is 1199 union. Nurses are reimbursed up to 30 credits a year. My whole MSN was paid for. Minimal out of pocket, and no loans! One of the reasons I pursued a higher degree also! I have seriously thought about going for my DNP/PHD

    Carrob,
    I went back for my MSN in Education at Chamberlain at the age of 58. I graduated in Feb. I still work in the hospital, as the money and benefits are too good to give up. I also teach online for Chamberlain now as a visiting professor! Love it! It will be my "play money" in retirement. I thought it was worth it, not great money but love grading papers in my jammies drinking coffee

    I went to Chamberlain for my MSN in Education and graduated last Feb.My organization paid for my entire degree. Great program, and I recently secured a position in their residency program for new graduates of the MSN in Education to be an online visiting professor. I teach a BSN class online with a mentor watching over me and love it!

    I taught an online MSN with a professor from Chamberlain for my practicum. Super great experience! Loved it!

    I doubled NR 526 and NR 523. Those are the only classes I doubled! Practicum process was very busy. I taught an MSN class with one of the professors for my practicum. I would NOT double anything with the practicum. It was 100 hours when I was in but I think that has changed.
    Teaching online for my practicum helped me secure an online teaching position with Chamberlain in the online BSN program. I finished my degree in Feb of this year!

    When I was in my BSN program many students did their chemistry and microbiology classes online at Clovis College which was in New Mexico I believe Very easy and you can do it in your home and is accredited. Check it out! I took my Microbiology class with lab and it transferred into my BSN and MSN program at Edukan

    There are many programs that you can get your DNP and not be an NP. Chamberlain College, Capella, Grand Canyon, and many others have DNP programs!

    Lucy100. There are many things you can do as a nurse educator. I did my practicum teaching an online MSN class at Chamberlain with a mentor. I graduated in Feb of this year and will now be teaching as an online professor in Chamberlain's BSN program. Chamberlain started a residency program for new graduates of the MSN in Education program to teach online with a mentor for a year and get paid. After a year if you do well you will continue teaching there on your own. Great opportunity to get experience.

    Lucy100, first let me say Chamberlain is nothing like OU. I was very pleasantly surprised when I started at Chamberlain. I graduated with my BSN from OU. It took me 2 years and 3 months to finish my MSN, but I did one class at a time. You can do it quicker if you double up.
    No thesis at all. I can honestly say that I was very happy with the education program there.

    I know when I was in my BSN, many students took micro and A & P at Clovis College online and said it was not bad at all. "No" I did not go there, but many did, and said the tuition was very reasonable.

    Just finished my final class and now have my MSN in Education! I only have good things to say about Chamberlain and had a super experience with great instructors who want you to succeed. Chamberlain just started a nurse residency program for new graduates in the MSN Education track who teach online with a mentor for a year and get paid and get teaching experience. I will be teaching online for Chamberlain starting in May!

    Yes, but the virtual lab was kinda hard to get use to at first. I got a "B" in the class which I was happy about!

    Everyone I know who took it there did well and all the lab work was done at home.
