    I would love to work in education and do research on education. So you do not think that getting an EdD in, for example, curriculum development will not make me a better educator? Or will everything just overlap? Am I over thinking this? I am having a hard time obtaining an educator position so I am really frustrated and feel like if I have a degree in this and a degree in that, all pertaining to nursing education, then I will finally land a job. I have decided to obtain my PhD but I was not sure if the EdD will enhance my education or just be a waste of time.

    Quote from llg
    I did a PhD program several years ago. It qualifies me to teach at a university and also to work in a hospital as a researcher and in Staff Development. It's a degree that works in both the academic and practice environments.
    I would like to be able to have both of these options, like you, llg. Seems like PhD will do it then?
