Hi all!
This is my first time posting on here in nearly a decade.

I’m currently in a dual MSN/MBA program. I am interested in hearing from nurses who may have gone this route and what types of positions you’ve gotten with this degree.

I would love to do something “out of the box” but I don’t know exactly what, haha. I would also love to hear if anyone has any other opinions/ thoughts on what someone with this degree could do.

Doing a similar strategy. I actually already completed my MBA and starting my MSN in a week or so. I think this is the best of both worlds. Just even preliminary searches on Google show this combo to be excellent for top tier jobs. So stick with it!

From my understanding, with this combo, a whole new world of Nurse Executive, CNO, Director or Nursing etc. opens up. Of course, it varies with experience, but as with all things, you gotta learn somewhere, and companies realize that and mentor you until you get the swing of it all so to speak :.)

Do research as well, and small piece of advice...start making nurse management friends at your place of work. They will clue you in to the low down once you are finished and help you score a good position. Or at least help mentor you in the ways of management. Good Luck!

Thank you! I actually just finished the MSN part and begin the MBA part in about 3 weeks. Best of luck to you!
