Speaking as a former hiring manager, an experienced RN of 25 years and one who has practiced in this specialty for 15+ years - School work does not give one "experience".
An advanced degree (in any specialty) is not equal to practice "experience".
After finishing your undergrad nursing program did you have "enough experience" to transition into an independent practicing RN? No, that education gave you the educational foundation to begin your practice. You still had a preceptor or were put "on probation", supervised and considered "a new grad." You were not (I hope) allowed to walk into an ICU (or any unit) and practice independently, correct?
I do think that combined with your clinical nursing practice of 2 years and the foundational specialty knowledge your MSN in informatics will give you, you should be able to secure an entry level position in informatics.

Hi, thanks for the reply. I have been working as an RN for 2 months now. If I were to enter a MSN informatics program that takes 2 years... would that be enough experience to transition to an Informatics position? Thanks againg. Jerry
