I'm a family nurse practitioner and live in Sacramento, CA. Am looking for an online DNP program that is of good quality. Cost will be a factor. So far I've looked online at Univ Nevada-Reno, Loyola Univ New Orleans (both are starting DNP programs in 2010), Western Univ of Health Care Sciences and Rush. The first 3 cost about $30,000 total if you finish on time. Rush costs about $60,000 and I've talked to someone locally who used their online program and felt it was very well managed.
Does anyone have any experience with Western Univ or Rush? If so what did you think? I read on Loyola's website that they participate in Veteran's Administration nursing reimbursement, which is attractive if one is employed by the VA.
