I have a Bachelor's Degree in Communications with a minor in Business Administration. All of my career history has been in business administration, however I really want to get into the Healthcare Industry. I work full time and I have 2 small children so it would be really hard for me to pursue a BSN right now, so I enrolled in a online MHA program. I figured since I already have business experience the best way to incorporate that into healthcare would be the MHA. But now that I am reading and doing more research I am finding that an MHA with no medical experience might be worthless. Does anyone have an opinion on this? Should I still consider the BSN after I get my MHA or do you think I could get an entry level position with just my MHA and work my way up? I love strictly administrative work but I know I would love hands on work as a nurse too.
I know just having an MHA w/out any nursing experience leaves a bad taste in most nurses mouths and I am not even sure if I would be able to get into any position without the experience anyways.
Any advise would be appreciated, I am so confused at this point and would hate to think that I am wasting money and time in the MHA program.
