Enrolling in the Master of Science in Nursing - Healthcare Informatics (online) program at the University of Colorado Denver Anschutz Medical Campus with a concentration in Health Care Informatics is a great way to combine your clinical expertise as a nurse with your interest in clinical informatics. 


When you enroll in the Master of Science in Nursing - Healthcare Informatics (online) program through CU Online at University of Colorado Denver, you complete your MS in core graduate nursing, core informatics and six credits of specialty informatics courses. 

This program allows you to complete your degree in two years and empowers you to either start a new career or move forward in the one you already have. If you are passionate about nursing but want to add exciting opportunities for growth and professional development, this is the program for you.


At 34 credits total, including the MS in Nursing Core, you can complete this degree in as little as two years if you schedule a full-time course load. That would mean taking two courses per semester. However, we recognize that not all students can schedule full-time classes on top of their work, family, and personal responsibilities. That’s why we allow you to also take part-time credits, with as little as one course per term.

If you enroll as a part-time graduate student, you can finish the program in three to four years. Although you do have seven years to complete our program, it is unusual for a student to take more than five. We want to get you onto the next stage of your career as quickly as possible while providing the flexibility needed for a nursing professional working full-time.
