    I'm in agreement with Gerinurse10. As long as you have an R.N. license and a master's degree, the doors will open for additional and better job opportunities. I live in California, and I will complete my MSN with a focus on Nursing Education. I probably won't teach full-time, but pursue a management position as a DON or manager.

    Unless you plan on eventually being a nurse practitioner, I would go with the Helath Sciences. I actually have an MBA and have found it much more beneficial to me than a MSN. Now seriously thinking of going back for a Doctorate in Education or possibly in business. Trying to find which will work better with my school.

    Hope that this helps.................
    With an MBA! I'm a nurse with no management experience getting my bachelors in Health Care Management, and want to go on to get an MBA/Hospital Administration. What I can't figure out is what do I do then? Since I have no experience is that going to be a huge obstacle? Or will the MBA open some doors. I'd love to hear any advice you may have. Thanks, Kate
