I think a career path leading to being the chief nursing officer would suit my personality and would love to eventually peak in my career running the nursing side of an entire hospital. I have my MSN and a decade's worth of experience starting my own businesses, both medical and non-medical. Three out of the 4 I started I still profit from today. I can do sales, contract negotiation, networking, payroll, staffing, design and implement programs, marketing strategy, budget, manage people, hire/fire people, write protocols and policy, develop new streams of income, comply with osha and city/state requirements, the list goes on... I've done everything in my various businesses from cleaning the toilets to providing medical care...
But, I don't have any hospital related management experience and I have never managed medical professionals. I do not have any business related degrees.
I'm thinking of doing a post masters in health care administration but am not sure this is the right route to take? Will I be marketable with a post masters certificate? I saw that the american nurses credentialing center offers a "nurse executive" certification which I would be able to get with the health care admin certificate. Or should I get an MBA instead?
