I've been encouraged to pursue an MN degree but do not know much about the job market with this degree. I know you can teach with this, what else can be done? And is it worth it financially to do it? Anybody have any comments?

I apologize, but what is an MN degree? What's the concentration?

Master in Nursing. Concentration could be leadership, for example. I was encouraged to look into it and was curious to see if any of you reading this form have this and/or could comment on it.

Hello,

I got my MN from the University of WA in Seattle. I can't speak to non-NP students there, but all of us got MN's regardless of what our NP concentration was. So for us...it's a clinical degree.

Some schools offer an MSN and others offer a MS. I've not noticed any difference when it comes to getting jobs (though now I own my own practice) as far as that degree goes. What seems to matter most is if you are certified (can't get a NP license without it).

Barbara, FNP & GNP
