I've been an RN for a year now, and prior to nursing school I was a massage therapist. I went to school in, oh....2000-2001 for massage. In my state, at that time, there was no state regulation. I worked as a MT for a couple years and then moved on.
I would LOVE to know how to get a job as an RN and MT (obviously I'd have to see what I need to do to get my MT education licensed w/the state as laws have changed). I'd also love to know where you guys work, and what you do day-to-day.

- Oct 24, '12 by classicdamehave no idea how to merge the two. You might start with state regulations. Remember, you are always held to the standards of your highest license, which would be RN in this care (I assume)
- Oct 28, '12 by echoRNC711We use a massage therapist in cardac rehab . She is not an RN. However I teach meditation,stress management, give reiki as part of my job there as RN. If I had your skills I am confident they would avail of those too as part of my job.
- Oct 29, '12 by BubblesIn my state there are a few RN licensed massage therapists who have their own private practices. Usually they started as RNs and later got involved in the healing arts and combined nursing with massage therapy.
- Dec 4, '12 by alotusforyouI had no idea about this either! So cool.
I was a MT for a short time, but stopped due to moving several times and all the different state laws to contend with. Now I've settled in NW Arkansas and have been torn between going to MT school again to get liscenced here or going to school to become an RN and eventually a NP. It would be awesome to be able to do all three! I am going to look into this further....
- Dec 29, '12 by lmbtdoulaI am a massage therapist and birth doula in NC, just about to start my pre-nursing and CNA classes. Locally, nurse massage therapists work in birth centers, ob floors, integrative clinics, cancer centers. There are lots of options. Follow your passion and find or create a job that combines both.
