I graduated from nursing school about 8 months ago and have been working in an intermediate care unit. I feel that in a very short time I want to go back to school for my Master's. Any suggestions to where I could look for info on what's available in the nursing/nursing admin. areas?

Masters' programs are everywhere. You need to consider distance, tuition (maybe your employer will pay all or part?) and working the program into your life. I've been pursuing my Masters part time for several years as I work full time, and have 2 school age children to attend to. So, figure out where your priorities lie. Before you leap directly into a masters' program in nursing administration, I would suggest that you wait awhile and get a little more experience in the field first-on the front lines...you need to understand it before you can effectively manage it. If I'm not mistaken, I think there is a requirement of 1 or 2 full years of experience before you can even apply to a Masters program. Make sure the one you choose is NLN accredited! Good luck!
