Which route to go and which has less math?

In your post you ask which program has less math.

What is your goal with this degree? Math, statistical analysis, and MS Excel are big parts of data science. There is a huge trend in healthcare toward big data. I imagine that informaticists are expected to be comfortable with this type of stuff.

This is from the HIMSS website:

"Nursing informatics (NI) is the specialty that integrates nursing science with multiple information management and analytical sciences to identify, define, manage, and communicate data, information, knowledge, and wisdom in nursing practice."
