Thinking about a career change

I'm going to see if I can get a work situation that will allow me to do the BSN route as I already have a bachelors/masters degree in another field.

A couple of people suggested with my management background to get a BSN for management opportunities. Having been in management the past 6 years, I'm tired of it. I guess in the fields that I've worked, there's never been enough money-wise to justify being in management compared to those I've supervised. Does nursing have a much bigger pay discrepancy between those in management than say those who are on the floor?

I'd almost say if it's not at least 20%, I'd almost say forget it.

Regardless of the nurse's title, every nurse is a supervisor. Whether its supervision of aides, LPNs, ADNs or all of the above at once. There's no avoiding it unless you go into something like private duty nursing.

If you go to salary.com, you can find the salary answers you're looking for in the area you live.

With a BSN, you can do more than just "work the floor" or "management". You could become a nursing instructor as well.
