I have been a case manager for a public health department for a large metropolitan county for over 5 years. I want to stay on the case management and utilization review track for the remainder of my career. Lately, I have grown interested in pursuing a graduate degree and have noticed a few threads suggesting the MBA route. I am NOT interested in being a nurse manager or transitioning into any kind of supervisory role.
So— is pursuing an MBA worthwhile for a nurse interested in staying in the CM/UM specialty?
What programs are reputable? What have your experiences been? Online programs would be great as I must continue working full-time and have a child. Can anyone speak to the quality of that format?
