Competency-Based MSN–Nursing Informatics Program

Progress at Your Pace. Control Your Cost.

The competency-based option, available only in the BSN to MSN track, is an all-you-can-learn model in which students subscribe to three-month learning periods instead of paying for individual courses or credit hours.

The number of competencies you complete during a learning period—and the amount of progress you make—is dependent on your skill, experience, and time committed to study. The cost of the three-month subscription period for the MSN–Nursing Informatics program is $2,350. Speak with an enrollment advisor to better understand what level of time commitment is required to earn your degree within your desired time frame.
