    I am planning on doing a MBA/healthcare management. I spoke with a few people who discouraged me from specializing too much so MBA is a good way to go

    My nurse manager has a MBA, and she wants to go for msn. So i guess management jobs

    I did a MS/MBA. M.S. was in hospital administration. I go two excellent jobs in New York, then I moved to Florida. I interviewed for several positions in hospital administration but was told I lack sufficent experience. And that I should apply for a position in nursing management, since I had a B.S.N.. Look in the area you mean to work in, as to the type of education and experience that is necessary.

    I don't understand why your manger would wanna go for a MSN if she has an MBA. An MBA(Masters in buisness adminstration) affords you more mangerial opportunities without limiting you to nursing or healthcare. An MSN is a good thing to have if you plan of growing within the nursing field. I dont see too many MSN holders running major companies but i see alot of MBA holder in a variety of management positions. Most MSN nurses either work as floor nurses, Nursing education, public health nurses or own thier own nursing buisness. But MBA holders do it all except teach nursing unless they have a bachelors in nursing.

    Please explain to them the pros and cons of an MBA. I am already biased and will not do an MSN

    I have both...MSN and MBA and prefer the MBA as it allows for more opportunities, not only in nursing. When I retire south of the border, for example, my MSN will not mean much, but with an MBA, I'll be more successful operating my bar, running guns, getting illegals across the border, etc..

    I agree with suzanne4 -- I am an RN trying to decide on what sort of graduate program I want to pursue and this is one option I'm looking at. My boyfriend's mom is an RN with her MBA and is director of operations for a large hospital (whatever that title means!) -- from what I have come to learn, the sky really is the limit.
