Is an MSN-"CNL" a good place to start my career

  1. Hello,

    I have a couple interviews for nursing schools around the corner. Wooohooooo! I have a good shot at getting into either program. One is a MEPN with advanced nursing degrees the other is a Direct entry Masters - CNL program. My dilema is that I don't know what specialty to specialize in because I don't know enough of whats out there in the nursing field or what I particullary like yet. I do know that I don't want to be a bedside nurse my entire career, but understand that being a besdie nurse will provide a solid clinical foundation. Getting an advanced degree is important to me at some point down the line. My fear is that I will get an advanced degree that I don't particularly care for.

    Any advice would help! Thanks so much

    I am in the same boat, looking into MSN-CNL programs...what did you end up deciding? You like the program? Where can you go with the MSN-CNL program. Any help will be appreciated, thank you!

    I also have the same dilemna! Not sure which to pursue or what my job outlook will be like. I'm new to posting but have been reading the forums for awhile!

    Well... are you interested in working as a RN or a NP? The roles are quite different.
