I am a Nurse Midwife.....graduated when I was 27. I have a MSN as well as post graduate certificates as a Nurse-Midwife and in Healthcare Economics.
Ok, you first need to get more experience at the Level I hospital. You need sheer VOLUME and severity for your experience. Your goal is to have the worst cases now when you have people all around you to help.
To be an advanced practice nurse come 2015 you will need a post graduate degree (ie: PhD, DNP, etc). Make sure that you calculate for this financially and timewise. Look up the college financial section since funding will clearly come into play for you.
Not certain that having a MSN will help first....check with the school. Frankly, I do not understand why that would help. You need the hands on case load experience as a priority vs more pieces of paper. I know when I have someone putting me 'under' I want to know they can do it....not that they have multiple degrees. Think about it.
Good luck and I hope that this has helped
There are a TON of other positions you can use with your people skills, knowledge, documentation skills, etc.....OUTSIDE of those areas you are tired of!
