Hi. I'm Marla, Been a nurse for almost 20 years, I'm now a travel ER nurse. I'm done with floor nursing, I love my patients but not the rest,I have my associates in nursing and am ready for a new challenge. Teaching and computers and designing programs will be perfect for me. Problem is, I'm 47. I've started a Bachelor's in HI and have 2 years to go plus 2 years or so for a masters in HI or I could get a RN to MSN in HI in just under 3 years. The thought of another nursing class, which would be all of them except for the last 3 classes( which would be informatics) is very discouraging. At my age should I just "suck it up". I'm thinking I could get a Bachelors in HI plus a nursing informatics certificate. That would be quicker. Any help at all would be so appreciated, if I switch to MSN program I need to do next Tuesday. Thank you all in advance!!!
I went thru 4 EPIC go-lives last year, and I loved helping and learning, although I've never had a "super user" job per se.
