I do not know if any data is available as to which schools offer the best quality of life and education. About half the programs offer an MSN, as opposed to a masters in something else (ex: biology.)
I am curently attending Northeastern University in Boston, Mass. I have been in the program for about a month. The quality if life is good and it seems like the classes "overlap" which helps in putting all of the material together. Bear in mind, however, you will be busy most of the time and you really should not work. Its a good life though, sleeping nights, studying with friends, going to the campus gym. Far better than working in Nursing...
I heard through the grapevine that a nearby school that offered an MS in biology and the same length (28 months) actually contained 3 months extra material. I don't know how true that is, but I would find out. You don't want to be doing extra work and stressing for no reason.
If you've got better than a 3.0, 1000 or higher on the GRE and 2+ years in the unit, there is a program out there for you. The seats are there. You just have to pursue it hard enough.
G (hopefully soon to be) CRNA
