What are some websites or books in which I can learn about what you can do with a Master's in different areas? Or what people with a Doctor of Nursing do? I have a vague idea of some of the clinical focuses, but I'd like to learn more.

Discovernursing.com is a great website. It has dozens of profiles of nurses in all different specialty areas plus nursing students and nurse practitioners. Hope this helps! :D

the first link i've listed is the page on discover nursing that has a listing of all the different nursing specialties. when you link into the different pages you will also find links to the specialty associations where you can get more information about some of these careers. with many of them and a master's degree you are into a nurse practitioner role often requiring that you take a national certification exam. some of the specialty associations offer these certification exams and some of them are offered through the american nurses association. one place to look for lists of accredited msn programs is with the nln (national league for nursing).

The best resource I've found is a website called http://nursingprograms.com. The site outlines all the differences between RNs, LPNs, even CPNs and also nurses w/ bachelor's and even doctoral degrees. It's really helpful in deciding how far you want to go with your education in order to fit into your career.
