Would it be beneficial to get an associates in health information technology if I wanted to become a clinical analyst, clinical informatics specialist, nursing informatics specialist or something within that nature? I have my BSN, but I am really interested in playing the technology role in nursing as well - sort of don't want to do bedside for the next 40 years. I was looking online at Master's degrees in nursing informatics but they are so expensive like $650 per credit! In addition, it isn't necessarily required to have a MSN to obtain a job in the field - it may be a plus, but I'm pretty sure it isn't required.
Any input is definitely appreciated, Thanks!
