“It’s no secret that the nursing profession is one of the most demanding fields in healthcare today. This infographic by University of San Francisco’s Online MSN, takes a close look at how obtaining a Master’s in Nursing can help existing nurses further both their education and their careers.
Roles as clinical nurse leaders, care coordinators, nurse managers and patient educators are highly sought-after positions and generally require additional years of schooling beyond a bachelor’s or certificate in nursing. Pursuing an MSN allows existing nurse professionals to build upon their existing knowledge base and specialize in a specific area that best suits their fancy.
Did you know that the salary of an RN can stall at a certain point? Nurses who earn an MSN on average see a wage increase of nearly $40 an hour.
