    Hi! I am wondering what are the best programs for a Masters in Nursing Education that are out there right now. If anyone has completed one recently or enrolled in one now? Thanks.

    What do you consider best? Cheapest? Most prestegious? One that will prepare you the best for what you want to do?

    At the masters level, there are a bunch of big name schools that offer degrees at a distance: Duke, UNC-Chapel Hill, Vanderbilt, Yale are just a few that come to mind right off the top of my head. Expect to pay dearly though.

    Well, I was hoping someone who has completed one would have some insights to their respective programs. I would need inexpensive, but respected... and that people have enjoyed etc.

    I just started my MSN in education this semester at Walden University. It's all online, so even though there are due dates, I can do class work when it fits my schedule. The instructor for both classes is very helpful- we had a recorded call to listen to before classes started to give us information, plus a Q&A call each of the first two weeks of classes. Haven't really gotten into the education classes yet. They have agreements with quite a few hospitals that gives students a discount. So far, I'm really liking it.

    I recently completed my MSN - Education Specialist through Western Governors University. 100% asynchronous, under $3500 / term, and the tuition is flat rate, meaning you work at your speed, and if you can complete more than the required number of credits per term you pay NO ADDITIONAL TUITION! Pretty sweet. I did my MSN in two terms - under $7K. Oh, and most textbooks are INCLUDED as ebooks with the tuition cost.

    AFAIK, Yale doesn't offer a degree in nursing education, distance or otherwise.

    I completed at University of Texas and thought it was fine. Their department has a ton of credenitals and do nursing research.

    I did mine through CSU Dominguez Hills. The GRE not required. There is no thesis. I only had to go to campus two times. I had a great relationship with faculty and fellow students online. I learned a lot. California state tuition--so it is a bargain compared to other online schools.
