Nursing is a rewarding profession with excellent pay and abundant job opportunities across the country. For Registered Nurses (RNs) with post-graduate degrees, the opportunities are even greater.
RNs with a master’s degree hold leadership roles in healthcare delivery. They may be involved in advanced clinical practice, research or education. Many become clinical nurse specialists or nurse practitioners. With a doctor of philosophy degree (PhD), RNs can contribute to nursing and healthcare at high levels in advanced clinical practice, research and shaping public healthcare policy.
Employment for RNs is expected to grow faster than the average for all occupations because of technological advancements, increased emphasis on preventive care and an aging population that continue to spark demand for healthcare.
Several Mississippi universities offer post-graduate degree programs for RNs who wish to pursue a master’s degree or PhD. Learn more about the programs available to you today.
