how to become an msn nurse?

An MSN nurse is a licensed registered nurse (RN) that has earned a master’s degree in nursing. Registered nurses that are master’s level prepared may choose to pursue opportunities in management, administration, research, or education.

Where can an MSN nurse work?

A Master of Science in Nursing (MSN), particularly one that focuses on population health, can help you land leadership roles in healthcare settings as diverse as hospitals, schools and universities, and government lobbying/insurance consulting.

Why earn an MSN?

While an associate or bachelor’s degree in nursing is a great choice for those looking to get their nursing career started, an MSN degree can position you for even more advanced career opportunities with higher earning potential, in specialized areas or in leadership roles.
