CRNA MS MSN or does it matter

  1. I guess my question is, does it matter if you get a master of science of nursing, or is a master of science better. Or ultimately is there a difference once practicing.

    Anyway, I have heard some people say that a master of science is the best to have.

    You can be an instructor with an MSN. Other than that, there is no difference with practice.

    Hi,
    I looked at both types of schools before applying. The MSN program have a generic core and anesthesia area of specialization. I applied to MS programs because it was a better fit. No nursing theory courses.

    You can be an anesthesia instructor with either an MSN or MS degree in nurse anesthesia. I have both teaching in my program.
