Hi i'm a 2yr nurse and 2nd career nurse ! ! !

I am ready to start my Master's Level Training and don't want to go back to my Bachelor's School since I already have 2 Bachelor's from that School.

I am soliciting feedback on ONLINE Master's Programs.... What's best about the programs any of you have taken......

1. Most economical?

2. Most user Friendly ???

3. Best interactions????????????

Thanks for any information you are willing to share.

Does it HAVE to be online, or is that one school the only one near you?

University of Phoenix has MSN Bridge Program, ( 9 undergraduate) and then you proceed to the MSN program. I am sure other programs have similar bridge programs

You might want to check out Frontier School of Midwifery and Family Nursing. I am in the bridge program and I feel the price is pretty reasonable, comparatively speaking. I have only just started so I cannot give you too much info but I can say that it has been a wonderful experience so far

Here is a link http://www.midwives.org

Economical=University of Missouri Columbia online NP

I looked them up and it seems to indicate that it's over $600 per credit if you are out of state? Is that correct? Or is it some special rate for the nursing MSN?

What's your major? I've heard good things about Walden University and was hoping to go there myself. I'm not sure about economical, but it's cheaper than UoP and several others I've looked into.

Good luck!

Many online MSN programs will accept you directly into their MSN programs if you have a non-nursing BSN (which you indicate you have..) Some require an extra course or two, some nothing. Barry University is one I'm looking at, it has a 30% tuition discount for nursing MSN students, but Frontier is definitely cheaper and they accept non-nursing BS degrees also. I'm also considering St. louis U and Rush in Chicago, but they're pretty spendy.

Definitely check out these programs though, it may save you more money in the long run if you have less credits you need to do even if the price per credit is more.

Best,

K

I have a friend in Frontier, she loves it. The people I talked to were great. In the end, I decided to not attend there because they had a requirement of an ARNP preceptor for 80 percent of your clinicals. I live in an area rife with PA's and MD's, so I was worried that I would not be able to complete the program if I could not find a preceptor.

I am attending http://www.southalabama.edu/nursing/ It is a good program, cheaper, but it is not as warm and fuzzy as Frontier. This comes with a bigger school versus a small class.

I think they are both good ones. No disparity to either. I just had to make a choice based on their requirements. Search their websites, both are very informative, though Frontiers is easier to navigate.

I know there are others, FSU and Univ Of So Indiana have programs too, that I hear are good.
