OK. I'm a travel nurse. I am planning on getting settled into a staff position. Once I am comfortable, I will be returning to school. I've always insisted I would, at the very least, get my BSN. MSN is optional.
But, if I get my MSN, I might go into nursing research. But, to be honest, I really dont know what it is about or how it works.
What exactly are you "researching"?
Is it something done in an office or do you go out to sites like different hospitals and such?
What is the end goal of research? In other words........if you do a great job, what is the outcome, how does it improve things for the nursing field?
I have to admit, I'm very bedside with my education up to now, so obviously, I am cluelesss about the whole research dept.
