    $535/credit, first semester is 4 credits. Also technology fee of $130. Tuition, according to my enrollment advisor, goes up each fall. Books are included. However, there are tuition reduction options, such as partnerships. Because they have a partnership with my workplace, I get 10% off tuition.
    Which one has more scope? Education or Informatics? I am already started doing Education. Wondering if I should switch to Informatics.

    If you mean scope of practice, they're the same. Still an RN license but not advance practice. It's just a different specialization, kind of like L&D and ICU are both nursing but different specialization. One for education, and one for ::shiver:: computers.

    Yes!!!! I am torn between just going for it and doing the MSN program or obtaining a BSN first???? Any thoughts? I am planning on going the leadership and management route...and would LOVE someone to reach out too.

    So who else will be starting with me on Monday? Just took a look at the syllabuses (syllabi?) for my two classes. Getting a little nervous and hoping I can handle it all!

    I heard that they are not board approved in their state. This means no board of nursing approval no licensure.

    Walden's masters program has been CCNE accredited since 2006 and is accredited through 2020. They do not offer an initial degree, meaning that one must be licensed as a registered nurse to complete their BSN completion program or any of their masters programs.

    Also, as of this posting you have 5 posts all saying this exact same thing, making me wonder if you have a personal issue with this school. Also, you can't believe everything you hear.

    Prash, Did you switch to Nursing Informatics?

    I'm seriously considering the Nursing Informatics route and would like your input.
