I got my RN in 1982, two-year degree. I already had a 4-year degree in another field, so put off advancing my nursing education for 15 years. At that point, when I went looking for BSN programs, it became apparent that a BSN would not make me a better nurse, and I would be wasting time and money just to "fill a square". I got a BBA in Health Care Administration and a MBA in Health Care Management, and have never regretted it. Health Care is big business, and the more you know about the "big picture" the more marketable you are. The market is over-saturated with NPs in many areas, some are having trouble finding jobs. I would go for the MHA.
