I am a RN, BSN and a master degree in health administration (MS). I was very upset to find that so many colleges and universities require that I obtain a nursing administration (MSN) in order to enter into the DNP. Could someone help me understand how a non nursing masters degree (MBA, MHA, MS) could not be credible enough to enter an executive leadership/administrative DNP track? I am also discouraged that the profession will not allow me to teach leadership in nursing at the bachelors level since my masters is not a MSN. I am a board certified nurse executive with over 15 years experience. Anyone else have these issues?
