    University of Southern Indiana http://www.usi.edu has a wonderful totally online program with many specialties for MSN, and is much, much less expensive than many others. I encourage you to check it out. They are very good with answering any questions that you may have. I will be starting there Spring 2010, but many who work with me have used them, and many more are currently students, and I hear nothing but excellent things about them.

    I'm working on my BSN from Kaplan University right now and already plan to continue with my MSN. I LOVE Kaplan. Its very interactive and accessible. I work 5 12's a week and am very active outside my home as well (married with 3 kids, too).

    I don't want to give you the impression that it is easy. I devote A LOT of time to school. I work very hard to maintain my 4.0 and 2 classes each term, but I really love my program at Kaplan. I encourage you to check them out at kaplan.edu

    Hello,

    Could anyone help me with more info about the online nursing programs? I would like to know the cost per credit hour. A lot of BSN and MSN programs but how much does really cost to attend an online university?

    Thanks.

    They're all different. You're better off finding a program you like and checking the cost, vs. the other way around. Good luck.

    I would agree that Kaplan is a good school, thing is they are expensive (I believe). I called them yesterday to check out the same. This is what I was told:
    $350/crdt-63 credits for the MSN; Total $22K+. Walden on the other hand is $435/crdt, approx. 41 credits for the MSN program; Total=$17835 (includes books and fees (waldenu.edu). They have a special that if you apply and they receive all they need by June 22, you'll get a 20% discount. Also Phoenix University, theirs is $550/crdt, 42 credits to complete the program I asked about.
