I am considering an online msn in nurse education from Western Governor's University but have concerns. Will employers see this as a legitimate degree or are applicants with online degrees like this overlooked for applicants from more traditional schools? I just do not want to waste my time. Has anyone from one of these type schools had any luck finding a position?
I got my degree from Texas Woman's University, MSN in nurse education. Program was all online, but the school itself is not. This is an accredited university. Just make sure whatever school you choose, it is accredited and the tuition coast is comparable to local schools. I know of two nurses that paid 2x more in tuition per semester than I did, and I attended a private university.
The reason why I went this route is because my hospital stopped paying tuition reimbursement for most online schools. And I also choose it because of the university's great reputation.

Mine is from Valparaiso University. It's not in education; it's in my specialty.
Hey, Tait. Do you know---------------? She was one of my instructors at Valpo, was dean there for awhile, and is an awesome lady. She went to Grand Canyon when she left Valpo.
My apologies for posting the name I posted. I didn't think posting the name of an awesome person would be a problem. Again, I apologise.
