Case Manager seeking MSN

  1. 0
    Hello, I've been struggling with which focus I should have in grad school. I love educating patients and students, but I don't think I really want to teach in the classroom setting. I'm leaning more towards the leadership and management focus because it pertains more to what I am doing now. Does anyone have any advice, such as any case managers that may have either one of these focuses and your experiences? Thank you!

    I plan on going back to grad school also. I got accepted to a FNP program, but now having second thoughts. The cost of NP school is so expensive and the clinical portion will conflict with my schedule. I'm thinking about going into Health Care Administration.

    I agree with you, that's my struggle as well. I know that each of these nursing degrees have practicum hours that are required. So at this point I am very nervous about pursuing the education degree now that I am in case management. What is making you think of going into Health Care Administration?

    I understand the struggle. As a case manager, my schedule is Mon-Fri and very busy. I have to do Utilization reviews as well. Since leaving the bedside, I've been more interested in the "administrative" side of patient care. I need to research this area a little more before deciding. A friend of mine is a case manager and a clinical instructor on the side. She was able to go part time for her MSN in Education. She seems to like it.
