I'd like to become a manager and work my way up the ladder to hopefully CNO. I'm looking at two different schools
to earn a master's degree and I'd like your opinion on which one is more favorable to my career advancement.
School 1: I'd earn a dual degree as either MSN/MBA or MSN/Nurse leadership. Both options are 100 percent online and I'd have to opportunity to sit for Certification exams upon graduation. This is not a renowned college. Just a simple private university in the middle of nowhere. Fully accredited.
School 2: Offers an Executive MBA degree, great school and reputation. It's an adult class for students who work full time. Not online. Upon interviewing, it seems like they rarely have nurses in this class. So I'm not sure if I'd get what I need since there isn't any focus on nurse administrators.
Plus, it's not a dual-degree. This school is in my city, it won't be an inconvenience to go to class.
Im just not sure which option is best for my career. I've been a RN since 05, but I was an LPN for several years before obtaining my BSN. I have plenty of experience as charge nurse and I've seen so much as a travel nurse. I really want this and I know I'd be excellent at it, but I just can't decide.
