Hey everyone. I've recently decided to go into Nursing. I am SO excited about this field b/c of the flexible days/hours, direct contact with patients, and the satisfaction from helping others. However, I do have a few concerns. I often hear that nurses are the most underappreciated, underpaid people. I'm wondering what specialties Nurses can get their Master degrees in to advance in the field and make more money? I only know about becoming a Nurse Practioner, who averages at around 80 k a year, and a Nurse Anastheseologist (sp?), who averages at around 100 k a year. What other options are there? I've heard that promoting for drug companies can lead to great opportunities and advancement? Is that a load of BS? What can Nurses Master in? Any advice? I want to know all my options b/c I do plan on getting my Masters... some day...
And, just to clarify, I am not doing this for the money. If I was, I would become a doctor! But I still want to make as much money as I can in this field, who doesn't?!
Thank's everyone! Hope I get some replies
