Have you started the informatics program? Which college did you choose and why? I am seriously considering Nursing Informatics. So far, I am leaning toward Walden or UC Denver. How is the program? Thanks in advance.
- May 2 by RN315I'm starting the nursing informatics program at chamberlain this July the whole program is just 36 credits and cost of the program is 19,800
- May 2 by RN315They even have the certification program for NI
- May 14 by rnformaticsr4meI think it matters less where you get your degree, but just that you have it. It opens doors. However the experience is what everyone is seeking. I just graduated from Northern Kentucky University with my MHI (May 11, 2013) and I think they have a pretty good program. I took courses in Project Management, Database Management, Data Warehousing/Data Mining, Systems Analysis & Design, Knowledge Management, Research Methods for Health Informatics, and Mobile Health. They now offer an MSN-NI program with most of the same courses, plus a few more related to nursing. The big difference is cost. My program was strictly online and I paid $450+/credit hour. It is now $510/credit hour, which is much more reasonable than alot of other programs. Good Luck and Good Knowledge!!!!

- Jun 4 by Starbuck4Hi InformaticsRN.MA. I was perusing UC Denver's HCI MS Program and cannot determine if the final degree is:MSN in Health Care Informatics or just simply: MS in HCI. Seems like it would be MSN since the college of nursing is offering it but I can't find the info to confirm or deny. What did you graduate with? Which electives did you choose? Would you recommend those courses? Is it all online?
Thanks so much.
- Jun 4 by InformaticsRN.MAHello Starbuck4,
My degree is an MS (not MSN) - in Nursing, with a concentration in Healthcare Informatics. Not really sure what the difference between an MSN and an MS in Nursing is, however...
For electives, I took eHealth and Human Computer Interaction - both were very good - yes, I would recommend them.
The program is all online - you can go to Colorado for graduation if you'd like, but it's not required. The defense of your final project can also be done via webcam, but I chose to go to the campus to do my presentaiton and was really glad that I did.
Let me know if you have any other questions. Good luck!
- Jun 6 by sufernanThank you InformaticsRN.MA. I did receive a response from them and I am thinking of applying. But I'm in such a dilemma. NP vs Nursing Informatics!!! . At my workplace NP gets better benefits than NI (nurse informatist). NP have a union position and NI is under management. I probably will end up doing both Masters program but I can't seem to decide which one to do first. Arghhhhh!!!
