I have been trying to determine the top 10 schools offering a Masters in Nursing Informatics and it seems like it's just about impossible to determine this. Many lists rank other specialities...but not for informatics. Does... Read More

    JustinAllen,
    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.

    I 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!!!!

    Hi 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.

    Hello 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!

    Thank 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!!!
