MSN Degree? Does it matter if which major?

  1. I was wondering if it really matters which MSN degree to go for. I know they have MSN programs towards ANP, PNP, and other NPs, and then they have Informatics and they also have CNS. My question to you is if I enter an MSN from for ANP, and don't take the NP certifying exam, could I still work as a CNS? Or should I look for an MSN program specifically formulated to prepare me to be a CNS? I find MSN/CNS programs are becoming pretty rare, so I would really like to know if it makes a difference. Thanks in advance for your input.
