last night i heard a nurse say something that i thought was kind of disturbing.
she was talking about another nurse whom just received her masters, and how she can't believe she is still going to do bedside nursing.
she then said(loud enough for patients to hear) " if i get my masters, you'll never see me in beside nursing" i'll have a much better job, and won't have to deal c- patients".
when she said that, i cringed. i know nurses with masters have a higher eduacation, but does it mean that they will never work as a beside nurse again? are they above bedside nursing?
i may pursue my masters, because i would love to teach... however i don't see myself thinking i'm too good for beside nursing just because of a masters degree.
anyway tell me what you think...
