    Check out St. Joseph's in Standish Maine. I am doing my Masters in Nursing Education there, and it is mostly through distance education. You are required to do one 2 week summer residency. You can do one class at a time, and the cost isn't too bad either. They are accredited. Let me know if you have any other questions!

    How about a MPH (Master in Public Health), this would open up alot of research opportunities and health promotion/prevention type jobs.
