I noticed some people have MBA degrees along with their nursing degrees. Has the MBA degree helped. If so, how has the degree helped (promotions, etc). Has anyone used their combined MBA/(BSN or MSN) degree to gain entrance into the health admin (health policy) field? If so, how hard is it to gain entrance into this field? What type of opportunities are available to those who have an MBA while in the nursing field. Thanks for your input.
I'm in my 7th year of school. I have certified in the IT field tremendously and then got my MBA in Health Administration. I am currently working on my BSN too. These are KEY fields in today's society if you are good at IT have a BSN and to top it off have an MBA then your given a chance to prove yourself even if you don't have experience.
I work for the state and came in with no experience except my education. My education really gave me an edge with working with various applications as well as having a good foundation for biostatistics and Epidemiology. I work part time, make great money and they are VERY flexible with my schedule because I am diverse in my education.
Specifically I work with budgets, epidemiology, project management, needs assessments, statistical analysis, data analysis, HIV/AIDS, STI
