    Thank you!

    PhD Nursing... thinking about it

    I'm currently in school for my MSN with 5 more courses to go! I want my freedom after school but also think about a PhD.... Who has a PhD and what was it like? Is it completely different from your graduate studies and more independent? How long to complete and what are you doing with your degree? ANY information welcome!

    Question for case managers

    Any clinic/insurance/hospital based case managers out there? If so what do you like/dislike about your job (be honest). Where do you work (hospital, clinic, insurance company, etc). What is your educational background (ADN, BSN, MSN)?

    To defer loan repayment or not?

    If anything I will still pay what I am paying now monthly even if they are all deferred, but i am trying to see how much an estimated monthly payment would be tacking on the graduate loans if I don't defer them.

    To defer loan repayment or not?

    Hi all, I am going to venture on to my MSN! I am currently paying off my undergrad student loans and have about 8 years left as I'm on a 10 year plan. I was talking to my loan servicer who said that once I enroll back in school my loans will be deferred again and I cannot "pick and choose" what loans are in deferment or not. I WANTED my undergrad loans to still have auto pay on them, and graduate loans deferred but that won't work. So my question to you all is do I defer my loans again but keep putting the same monthly payment towards it as if they weren't in deferment or TRY and pay of my graduate loans along with undergrad at the same time and NOT defer them? Anyone doing this?

    Msn degree and working full time

    I work in a family practice clinic and 10 hour days aren't an option unfortunately and even working four 9 hour days may not be an option because once they "lose" that 1.0 FTE status (aka someone working every day M-F) they may not get it back. I can look into preceptors at hospitals on the weekend, i wouldn't have a problem with that but i don't have any connections at this time.

    I will look into it, but I don't think I can do my normal job and consider that practicum hours

    Msn degree and working full time

    I want to get my msn in leadership so bad. I found the school I want to go to but it needs a total of 378 practicum hours over three semesters. I work full time in a family practice clinic Monday through Friday. I have no idea if I could pull off taking vacation for all those practicum hours needed and I don't even know if my job could accommodate me going less than full time 1.0 FTE anyone else out there do msn while full time?!

    MBA or no? Need major advice

    Did you work full time during the msn? What program did you do and how was it?

    MBA or no? Need major advice

    How was the msn program and which one did you do? Did you work full time at the same time?

    MBA or no? Need major advice

    I think you would be fine with the msn alone! I have found conflicting articles regarding RNs doing msn vs mba vs mha

    MBA or no? Need major advice

    I am in dire need and need help. I enrolled in an MBA degree because i want to be a clinic manager one day. I chose the MBA vs MSN/MHA because I do not have time to complete a practicum while I work full time, and do not know if dropping down would be an option for me between the company's needs but also because of my need to work full time for those full time paychecks. Also, most practicums are 150+ hours, and i doubt I could take 150 hours "off" during a semester. Currently i work M-F full time in a family practice clinic as an RN Team Coordinator (this gives me experience supervising 4 LPNs/MAs). I know that to be a manager i need to put my time in as a nurse and gain more experience supervising (I just started this position in October). Anywho, I enrolled in this MBA which is going to cost me about an extra $35,000 to pay off (in addition to my $60,000 debt already). I am in my first week of classes and I am already thinking to myself "what am I doing?!" I don't NEED this degree to become a clinic manager one day, i need to put in my time, gain experience, and this degree will take me about 2 years to complete anyways, it's not going to get me to becoming a manager SOONER..... I made a hasty decision because I was unhappy and not confident at my job and made the decision to go back to school now while I'm younger but I thought to myself tonight, why not put in the experience and pick up some continuing education courses/classes and some nursing study books to FEEL more confident instead? Maybe I could take a few managerial/leadership courses but not necessarily an MBA. So, now i am in this position of do i give it the "college try" and finish this course and see how it goes or drop now and get 100% refund back? My mind is kind of made already to be honest..... (drop now and get my full refund vs having to pay back $2,300 for this 3 credit course). ANY advice is greatly appreciated, sorry for the long post. I really need advice from fellow RN's and managers.
