I am in a dilemma and would like some opinions from all you fab nurses out there.
I have been a nurse for 4 years working in the same institution,a great place where i work as a PACU RN. During that time I had obtained a Masters of Nursing education degree.
I have applied to Nurse education jobs everywhere, but not hired because my expertise is limited to "PACU", even not hired as an educator where I work! They wanted an educator with more broader experience.
I really love the place I work at as an RN, but don't see any growth professionally.
MY end goal in life is to become a Professor in a University. But I feel like a need a well rounded CLINICAL background.
Should I leave my institution and find a critical care unit to work at for a year? AND get a post masters in Nurse Practitioner?
go straight through and do my Doctorates?
Your input will be greatly appreciated ( as well as any other advice)
Thank you fellow RNs!!
