Hello guys, I'm a new-grad nurse from the Philippines. I have been offered a scholarship
program by a University in New York. It's Master's Degree in Social Injustices. It's for 2 years and I don't have to live in NY because it's by distance learning. I just have to submit the paperworks and assignments via the internet. A friend of mine who is currently enrolled in the program said that it will require a lot of readings and paperworks. I'm planning to take the NCLEX and I'm afraid that I would not be able to focus on it if I pursue the Masters program. But I'm willing to work hard for it if it has an advantage to my profession. What do you think are the advantages of taking this course in relation to nursing? Do you think I should go for it?
Thank you very much for your insights.

The school is St. John's University in Queens. The program will start on July. Students have to spend one month in Rome, from July to August. St. John's has a branch in Rome. Then they will go back again in Rome a few months before graduation. So that's 2 whole months abroad. The course is absolutely free.
We've been doing volunteer work here in the Philippines with a group of missionaries based from Spain. They were the ones who endorsed us for the scholarship. Some of our co-volunteers started a year ago. Their only complaint was the course requires time and effort (ofcourse)...
Your advice is highly appreciated...
