thanks everyone for your help. I am still confused, this is the problem i don't understand what I can obtain a masters in nursing in! I don't know where to look for these things and my teachers at school told me to just look at advanced practice, but that is AP nursing and not the only thing to get a masters in nursing in! am i making any sense? I am starting to confuse myself!! thanks again!
is a Masters of Science in Nursing.
To go into Advanced Practice, you will graduate from a program for the specialty you seek such as NP, CNS, CNM or CRNA.
Now, as traumaRUs pointed out, if you desire NP or CNS, you can obtain a sub-specialty in many areas such as Family Practice, Geriatrics, Psych/Mental Health, OB, Peds, etc........several different areas.
If you do not desire advanced practice, you can get your MSN and go to a program for specialty in Education, Leadership, Life-Care Planning, Legal Nurse Consulting, Nurse Administrator, Nursing Informatics, Forensic Nursing, etc......several different areas.
Here is a link to allnursingschools.com that outline many MSN programs and might help you:
