Here are four great reasons to attain your MSN:
The MSN provides you with a fuller picture of what is happening in global healthcare. You’ll learn about the public policy and politics that affect healthcare in America and across the world. You’ll gain a broader understanding of what it takes to provide quality patient services, through a wide range of delivery methods and medical facilities. You’ll also learn the importance of healthcare technologies and how they can be harnessed to provide the best patient-centered care possible, while protecting patient privacy.
The American healthcare system needs people like you who are passionate, dedicated and well-qualified, to be leaders in healthcare. Your MSN degree will enable you to move more seamlessly into roles of healthcare leadership. For example, as a Clinical Nurse Leader or Nurse Administrator, you would supervise others to ensure that patients get the quality care they deserve.

You can pass on your knowledge to the next generation of nurses and leave a legacy that will impact patient care into the future. The demand for nurses is expected to grow through 2022.1 You can help meet that demand by preparing future nurses as a leader in your field. If teaching is your passion, as a Nurse Educator, you’ll be trained to develop a nursing curriculum that sets standards of training with measurable objectives and program outcomes. Your knowledge could ensure that those following in your footsteps will develop the skills to match their passion for nursing and deliver superior patient care.
You’ll have more opportunities. Your advanced MSN degree could open more doors and give you more choices about the kind of work you do and where you do it. With your MSN degree, you choose which specialization will equip you to affect the change you’re most passionate about in the healthcare field. You may choose to remain active in direct patient care as a Clinical Nurse Leader, leading nurses on the floor to providing excellent care. Or you could choose to work in healthcare informatics as a Nurse Informaticist, helping to streamline communications and improve data collection for patient care and research. Perhaps you’re best-suited to lead teams and facilities as a Nurse Administrator or help train the next generation of nurses as a Nurse Educator.
