John’s Answer

It's hard to give an exact answer for a question like this. There are so many factors like the current job market, country/city you live in, and the exact medical specialty you're interested in. If you didn't know, there are many types of nurses, earning a certification like an RN or CNA would be a good way to be paid more, but it is more competitive. Here's a website with some more information that you might find helpful: https://www.snhu.edu/about-us/newsroom/health/types-of-nurses-infographic

I would also suggest using a site like Glassdoor (https://www.glassdoor.com/index.htm). Sites like Glassdoor are basically an anonymous form of social media for professionals to discuss salaries and the workplace environment. Talking to someone who works as a nurse or doing a job shadow would also be a good way to get more information.

John recommends the following next steps:

Visit Glassdoor! (https://www.glassdoor.com/index.htm)
Search for your desired job; in this case, "nurse".
Read about other nurse's experiences and see salary ranges.

Janice’s Answer

Hi Jordan-
Having a master's degree in the nursing profession allows opportunity for several different tracks. Typically administration, education, and advanced clinical tracks are possible.
For instance, if you enjoy leading employees, the administration track would fit best.
If you desire to teach or educate, the education track would be recommended.
If you prefer to stay in the clinical field, a clinical nurse specialist or nurse anesthetist role is available.

Other available positions to consider would be business, laboratory, research, physical therapy, and pharmacy. These positions also require a master's degree.

Consider finding a mentor to help you prepare for the role that interests you.

Good luck and have fun choosing your specialty area in the health profession.
