Masters Programs

  1. Hi all!

    I've been seriously considering furthering my education. I have my BSN and would like to peruse a masters. I am thinking FNP but am open to exploring.

    To to those who have done it:

    1. How did you decide which direction you wanted (FNP/teaching/etc)?

    2. How were you able to provide the two references for applications? One is a professional and another is educational. I haven't been to school in over 5 years and no longer have connections to submit an educational recommendation. Did you take prerequisites to help get back into school?

    3. I live in the Boston area. Any suggestions on schools?

    I'm really overwhelmed looking at schools and requirements so any help is amazing.

    Much depends on your interests....what do you like about nursing? Do you like to precept, teach students, mentor? Or do you prefer the science of care?

    What do you want to do for a living (most of the day every day)? That will direct you to what degree you want/need to get to where you want to be professionally. IMO, there's no point in getting a graduate degree in nursing just for the sake of having a degree. Best wishes for your journey!
