Career advancement with a Master of Science in Nursing Degree

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.

The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics projects that job opportunities for those such as Nurse Practitioners, are expected to grow 26% from 2018-2028, much faster than the average for all occupations.

Two career paths to choose from:

Nurse Practitioner

Nurse Educator

Career Options

Nurse Practitioner

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.

Nurse Educator

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.
