I think I finally made my decision about going back to school. I completed my bachelor’s degree last year and have been on the fence about getting my master’s degree. Is it worth it? What path should I take? I just couldn’t make a decision.
I think I know what I am going to do. I’m going back to school.
At first, I planned on either following an education or leadership path. I think that is going to change. I’m going to try to get into a nurse practitioners program.
After talking to lots of other nurses that are currently in school, nurses with their master’s degree already, and lots of research, I realize my career path is far more flexible if I have my advance practice degree.
I think I stayed away from the idea of an NP program because I had a very narrow idea of what nurse practitioners can do.
My views are changing. Being around a lot of wonderful NP’S in my career had shown me they do a whole hell of a lot. NP’S make a difference. I want to make a difference. I think I’m going to really give this a shot…
