    I am currently working at ivy league hospital and I was a developer for the last 10 years. Now, I am a Dev there. Go to the NI program at Chamberlin, it's your life. I know better from talking to many of the Nurses in the NI field that I work with and are mentors in my life. Good luck!

    Looking into Chamberlain to do my Masters in Nursing informatics.. Is this an online program? I have a bachelor's in computer science... Would this be credited? Thanks! She/He said they have a Bachelor's in CS. Look above ^^^^.

    I have a BS in Computer Science and I am currently completing my BSN Nursing degree in 1 year! You can't do NI without a BSN first. Any reputable program will require this. After my BSN, I will be getting my masters in Information Systems with a focus in Data Analytics. This is what NI requires as well as for the Future. Many of you RNs without technical skills and understanding are not suited for what's to come for NI. A Nursing Informatics Program is rudimentary and does not well prepare for the present and future. Use your CS degree for its value. Get into a one year BSN program. Many state schools and hospitals offer this. Stay away from for-profit programs that are solely online. Unless they are attached to a public university.

    There are more reputable ONLINE programs than Chamberlin.

    Is MSN informatics worth it?

    I agree. Future RNs are better off with a CS or MIS masters.

    The Path to Informatics

    Great! I got my BS in Computer Science and I am finishing an accelerated BSN program in 15 months. I would network and reach out to people in the field you want to work in. That has been useful for me. Find a mentor.

    What state or town do you live in? I am currently in an accelerated BSN degree program at CUNY. (15 months) I have a degree already in Computer Science. After my BSN program, I am looking into an online masters program at CUNY SPS in Nursing Informatics. Affordable and highly regarded. https://sps.cuny.edu/academics/graduate/master-science-nursing-informatics

    Research anywhere on here or do a Google search and there are others who have spoken negatively about them. Why would you want to go to a school that doesn't post their fees and tuition? That comes off as a scam. They have no real connections, they offer no scholarships and force people to take out loans to their crappy program. The Smart RNs know that State/Public Universities are the best investment long term. No to Little DEBT AND ARE HIGHLY FAVORABLE IN TERMS OF EMPLOYMENT. I asked HR at the Hospital where am I if they considered for-profit school like Chamberlin valuable. I got a quick no. Same answer from the nurses here too. Best of luck to you to whatever you decide.

    STAY AWAY FROM CHAMBERLIN. Have you read the review on here and other sites? They are a diploma mill and they hold very poor value in the workforce. Go to a public college or something more reputable.
  12. Hi all, Update. I got accepted into the 15 month BSN program at CUNY Lehman College. I spoke a leader within the program and she understood what I wanted to achieve as a future RN. Computer Science and Nursing is the future! Also, a Masters in Information System is more attractive than a masters in Nursing Informatics. This what many employees already in the field are schooling me on. So, my next step may be masters in Information Systems. I don't want to work in IT ONLY. I already do within a hosp. I want to be nurse that uses technology to improve the healthcare system for patients and my future colleagues. I want to add that I have CS degree and I took A&P and all the pre-reqs for nursing school already through the summer and winter. I scored mostly A and Bs.

    One Year BSN program, any advice?

    Are you working Informatics? How much experience do you think a nurse needs before she can become an Informatics specialist? Don't knock people for going a different route.

    One Year BSN program, any advice?

    From a debt perspective, I am not worried since my job pays for it. Most RN informaticist have a Masters in Informatics or a Tech related degree. But, it is not required right now in the industry. I could of done a regular RN route in 4 years and then a CompSci Masters in 2-3 years. That would of been 6-7 years total. However, I got a BS in CompSci in 3 years and now will be getting a Nursing degree in 1 year.
  15. I work there already. I want to go into Informatics. NYU is really the school that encompasses the reason why I want to pursue Informatics in a Nursing capacity. I want to build products that improve patient care and manage them. I would recommend any school that has a good dept. The school sent you is really good in those fields. CS is very theory based. MIS is applicable.

    One Year BSN program, any advice?

    Thank you for your input. I will look into this more when deciding on an accelerated BSN program. I would like to add that I already work in a hospital and I work with Nurses all day long. I have 3 years of exposure to the clinical side of things when I was an LPN from the age of 21-24. Also, many years of Patient Care is not usually needed for most RN in Informatics position. The focus on Informatics is on the management of Nursing Technology, not people.
