hello everyone. i am new to this website. i am thinking of going back to school for my masters, but am not sure if i need an msn. i have my bsn and am currently working in an icu. i have been a nurse for 8 yrs at the bedside and just am not happy there anymore..... i was wondering if any msn nurses could give me info on how more education helped them advance their careers.
welcome to allnurses.com.
it is great to have you with us.
i believe you should get the msn, if you do want to advance in nursing. you can choose from many tracks: educator, np, cns, nurse administrator, nursing informatics, forensic nursing, nursing leadership.......just to name a few.
i continued and am very happy with my choice, ob-gyn np and fnp.
now i realize this just my opinion. i wanted to let you know that it worked for me.
