I currently have a Bachelors of Science in Healthcare Management and have not had any luck finding a relevant job. All I seem to be able to do is land receptionist positions which is very disheartening. I had started the BSN program at Chamberlain, then stopped before medsurg to pursue the "business side" of healthcare. I am at a crossroads on what to do now to further my education and further my career in a direction I would want. I was planning on a Masters of Public Health program, but when I look for jobs that I would want, it seems that they all require 5 years experience or licensed as an RN. I clearly do not have either of these and would not at the end of my masters program. I am worried if I pursue that route I will once again be stuck with a degree and not able to find a job that is relevant to it. I have recently started thinking about finishing my nursing degree with the online ADN program at Chamberlain (I live in Columbus) and finish within a year and a half with my credits I already have. I guess I just don't know what to do/which path to follow. I am so deeply interested in public health but it seems many of the positions require an RN. Would it be smarter and would I be more marketable to pursue my RN coupled with my Bachelors in Healthcare Management?
I also wanted to say that thankfully money is not an issue as my parents have so generously offered to pay for my schooling to help my new husband and I start our lives together (since I know Chamberlain is so pricey), I just want to make sure I'm not wasting their income as well as my time either way.
I would appreciate any help, I am so confused!
