You can choose two paths with a Master's degree - Nurse Educator or Nurse Practitioner.
Nurses aspiring to dramatically improve their career advancement opportunities need to enter into specialized fields, and are encouraged to pursue an MSN degree in Illinois.
MSN nursing positions have a much higher earning potential with salaries at an average of about $90,000 per year in the Chicagoland area.
Job opportunities for master’s-degree educated nurses typically expand faster than they do for those with an undergraduate degree. The Bureau of Labor Statistics projects that job roles such as Nurse Practitioner are expected to grow 26% from 2018-2028, much faster than the average for all occupations. This presents a great opportunity for you once you obtain your graduate degree at Resurrection University.
Nurse educators are critical to creating a robust, comprehensive educational experience for nursing students at all levels. The MSN Nurse Educator Program at Resurrection University can prepare you for long-term success by helping you develop the skills you’ll need in both classroom and practice settings. Nurse Educators employed in specialty hospitals earn a mean annual wage of more than $106,000 (according to BLA, 2017).
Nurse practitioners hold advanced degrees and are nationally certified advanced practice registered nurses (APRNs) who provide a full range of primary, acute, and specialty care services. They work both autonomously and in collaboration with other healthcare professionals in settings that range from large hospitals to small independent clinical practices. Our graduate program will help you develop the expert knowledge base, decision-making skills, and clinical competencies needed to provide the highest quality patient care.
