    I graduated from Chamberlain's MSN-Educator program. My only complaint is the discussion board requirement. I know that it ensures class participation but I often felt they were a waste of my time. I'd rather spend that time in research, writing papers, or doing my practicum hours with a preceptor. I couldn't even enjoy a cruise because of those stupid discussion boards (truth be told, I would have done WGU's program had I known about it). I paid around $24,000 (with my employer discount) and it took me 2 years at Chamberlain. A colleague where I taught at the time did her's through WGU and it took her a little over a year and she spent around $8,000. Be wary of for-profit schools (Chamberlain is owned by DeVry). They tend to be more pricey (but in all honesty, my instructors were great).

    Thanks for the info. As for practicum was it hard to find preceptors? I'm sure each track will be different in that area though.

    Not for me. I was already teaching with my BSN and used one of my co-workers as my educator preceptor.

    HI!

    This is my last week in the Educator Track. How do you write credentials? I am in a debate at work. Thanks!

    I don't think there are any hard and fast rules. My professor told me years ago to put degree-license-certifications. I always use my name, MSN, RN, CMSRN, CNE. I see other people use name, RN, MSN, etc.
