I asked this question on the student general board. Just wanted to know from you guys.
Out of curiosity, I currently have a BA and I will be finishing my MBA this year. I just got accepted to a nursing program for Spring 2012. Is there anyone who has found their degrees in other areas to be useful in their field of nursing in any capacity, like salary for instance? Has anyone been offered more money or are they still started with the standard salary. If you have, what do you do in the nursing field? I have seen many jobs as case managers, insurance companies, and things like that that I may be interested in.
I'm a second degree BSN. I've been working as a nurse for 25 years, working professionally 40 years. In nursing, I never got an extra dime for my non-nursing academic career. However, I HAVE gotten extra money for my BSN.
I had sort of expected that my prior degrees would add up to some $ in my nursing career but that just never happened for me.
