After years of caring for disabled, sick, and aging patients, many registered nurses (RNs) look forward to entering a management or administration role that supervises, teaches, and trains the next generation of young nurses. Earning a master of science in nursing (MSN) degree makes this career move possible.

The master of science in nursing degree can prepare you for a career in management and administration, or for a number of specialty nursing fields. MSN degree-holders can choose to become nurse practitioners, nurse midwives, or nurse anesthetists. They are also eligible to earn advanced practice licenses and national specialty certifications that dramatically increase their salaries.
