Best and cheaper online program for MSN in informatics

  1. 2
    I was wondering which online school (Walden, Excelsior, Univ. of Phoenix, etc.) is the cheapest in tuition for Masters of Science in Nursing for Informatics? I am currently in the process of applying for an MSN-informatics program online and so far I have inquired with Univ. of Phoenix and their 18 month program will cost me a total around $25,000. If anyone knows a school that offers this degree online and it's cheaper.. please reply back to the thread. Thank you!

    I just completed the MSN/Informatics from University of Phoenix. I enjoyed it. However, it was not cheap.. at all!

    First off congrats to you on graduating...curious as to how much group work was involved as well as time committment and if you feel it helped you in the informatics field?
    Thanks! Marcy

    I tend to overdo things, but even at that I am going to say about 10 hours a week?
    It's a sacrifice. I actually took 2 classes at once and modified my work schedule so that I would have a day off during the week. During that day off I would attack papers and assignments for 8-9 hours straight.
    Every class has a group and at least 1 assignment. The group stuff is really beneficial for developing team concepts, something that as nurses we are already familiar with.

    I would recommend it. I would recommend University of Phoenix also, but there are way cheaper options.

    I am currently in an MSN-informatics program at American Sentinel University..Its a lot cheaper at $450 a unit and is also nursing accredited. So far so good! I am just a little worried as I dont see too much on this school from the graduates of this program..its been around a while but newly accredited.

    I am looking at an in-state university program for an MSN in informatics. The costs seem to be more reasonable than private institutions.

    Check out Grantham University $265.00 a credit hour and if you or your spouse is prior military they give you a discount.

    For my money, I am thinking of American Sentinel for my MSN in Informatics. They gave me 6 credits for previous coursework so I have 30 to go.

    Thoughts?

    Thanks
