I am actually wondering how many nurses with BSNs out there are looking at getting their master's. How long do you work on the floor, bedside until you feel its time to take the next step and continue your education?
Nursing Master's degrees are designed to certify you for advanced licensure as a nurse. The most common is the Masters of Science in Nursing (MSN) degree, which is required to become an advanced practice nurse. Earning a Master's degree in Nursing typically take two or three years of postgraduate work. From here www thedegreeexperts com/dg-science-and-medical-113.aspx you may get more information on online MSN degree.
Great question. For those flirting with the idea of receiving their masters, it's first best to do an RN to BSN program (if you haven't already). Especially for those who aren't sure which population/speciality they want to work with, gaining experience is key before committing to higher education. The last thing you want to do is get your masters not knowing what you want. Follow the same process you did in your undergrad because it obviously worked to get you to this point!
Hi all.. new here. Im an RN of 20 years pursuing my bsn/msn at thomas edison state college. I have a BA in science/math from my early years. Its really hard to decide what field to pursue Im thinkin Informatics or Health Policy would be useful.
