Hey everybody! I wasn't sure where to post this so I chose nursing management. I'm getting my BSN soon and have a million thoughts running through my head on the direction I want to take my nursing career. My top 3 considerations include: managing a large medical corporation/business, becoming an NP, and becoming a CRNA. Becoming an NP or CRNA would be the "easy route" in a sense because all I have to do is get accepted into a program so I am not going to talk any further about those 2 options.
I would love to get into an administrative role in a large medical company one day but have NO idea how to do it or where to start. I am not referring to charge nurse or nurse unit manager roles, but a larger role such as a hospital administrator or a director of medical staffing agencies. **Nothing against unit managers or charge nurses, I just know I can't deal with the 24/7 headaches that come with the job.
If anybody reading this currently has an administrative role or has combined their nursing career with a business role please enlighten me on what you are doing and how you got there.
Also, if anybody has the answer to these questions please let me know:
1. Do managerial/director positions exist for nurses in medical staffing agencies such as MSN?
2. Would getting a MBA in the future open any opportunities?
