I've just been offered a job as an Epic configuration analyst for a hospital that is going to be rolling out Epic EPR. However, I was also offered a place on an MSc in healthcare informatics at the same time. They're not really compatible together, it's either one or the other.
Seriously, this is not a brainer decision and I second fusionfire32's comment. Take the epic role. I know people who got their master's degree, and can't land jobs because the job market is so competitive. Yes, plenty of jobs, but at the same time, plenty of candidates out there so employers have gotten very very picky, as they want candidates with experience and then they want SPECIFIC experience.
You have an offer to get your epic certification? Take it, and have no regrets. This will open many opportunutities later on. As far as the project being finished...well, kind of funny, but you will find out that there will always, always be something going on: upgrades, new functionalities being implemented, other solutions being implemented...etc.
