I have the same question. I think people may be misinterpreting the person's post. She's asking if RN experience (will take years)
+ her current Masters will make her a candidate for a nurse manager in the future
. Sounds like she's planning ahead.
I'm in the same boat. I currently have a MS in a health-related field. I had nurses in my grad program. I'm wondering if my current MS degree + years of experience as a RN (not there yet)
would meet the qualification. Basically, what can a MS in Health Care Admin and RN license (with years of experience) get you?
@toekneejo, sounds like you're saying it's best to go the RN-BSN instead of the RN-MSN way b/c of Magnet status. So even if you have an ADN and MSN, you may still run into problems finding a job b/c you don't have a BSN? This is good info to know.
