A master of science in nursing degree enables current RNs to expand their employment options into specialized tracks within the nursing field. This encompasses a large variety of careers including nurse midwife, family practice nursing, and nurse anesthetist. Some RNs who possess an MSN degree also choose to work in related fields like nursing education or nursing administration and management.

What are the benefits of earning an MSN?
RNs with an MSN degree hold a distinct advantage over RNs who do not have this prestigious credential. Nurses with a master's degree are often in higher demand and earn higher salaries than other RNs. This in turn provides greater financial security and flexibility.
