Share What You Do With Your MSN!

Curious to know what others do with their MSN degree! I think that many focus on the APRN roles, however I know there are many other opportunities and roles for nurses with their MSN besides APRN. So, I'd love to know what you do with your MSN.

Thanks for sharing!

Great topic, MurseJJ! I think you and I are of similar minds (remembering some past topics). I look forward to the responses as well!

I am the manager of a hospital unit in an acute care community hospital. I am responsible for the daily and long-range operations of the unit, and lead around 60 staff (RNs, CNAs, and unit secretaries).

My MSN is in Nursing Leadership.

Bump! Hoping for more thoughts. Guessing this got lost with the "BSN is a joke" thread :wacky:

I am looking at skipping my BSN and going straight for MSN. I previously had wanted an N/P role, but it seems that just about every nurse I encounter is thinking the same thing. I'm now leaning more towards MSN in management/nursing leadership. I feel like I am more suited for this role, plus all of these N/P's are going to need a Nurse to help them run their clinics :whistling:

I have an MSN in nursing education. I am currently one of several staff educators for all perioperative employees in my hospital system- we cover around 900 staff between perianesthesia and intraoperative staff as well as our procedural areas like endoscopy.
