What can I do with a Masters degree in Nursing besides NP/CNS?

  1. Im an RN working in the NICU right now, and I am interested in going back to grad school to get my Masters in Nursing...not exactly sure what yet, but I don't think I want to be an NP, CNS, or Educator, MAYBE research. So what other jobs can I do with a Masters besides those? If any?

    Also, I am feeling a little burn out from bedside nursing as well. Any suggestions on what I can do with a Bachelors in Nursing besides that?

    I'm just about finished with a dual MSN/MHA degree and I am working partime in an ICU and part-time as a nursing supervisor. I want to work in quality improvement or some other area of administration at some point, but honestly I'm wishing I would have just gone for my CNS instead. I still may someday, but I've been going to school almost non-stop since graduating high school and I really just need a break.
