What can I do after bsc nursing?


Student (B.A(h) Philosophy, Content writer(Fashion and beauty) | Posted on

 Now a days the number of students who are passing out BSc nursing is more than that of GNM Nurses. So its time to think. What they can do with their BSc Nursing degree? What all career fields they can opt after BSc Nursing? Is it the end or beginning? Most of us are fed up with BSc Nursing itself and are not interested in learning it any more. So the question is what all are the options infront of a BSc Nurse?

The scope of MSc Nursing has diminished in India owing to the rapidly increasing no of Post Graduates from numerous colleges in India. The newly passed out MSc Nurses are ready to work as a staff nurse or as a teacher with staff nurse salary.

Lets see some of the options,

  • MHA – Master of Health Administration/ Master of Hospital Administration Both these courses are available at Tata Institute of Social Sciences – TISS, Mumbai Campus. 
  • MPH – Master of Public Health Many national institutes like Sree Chitra (SCTIMST) Trivandrum, PGIMER – Chandigarh, AIIMS – New Delhi etc conducts MPH course, but SCTIMST and National Institute of Public Health (NIPH) only allows nurses to pursue MPH after their graduation. 
  • MBA – Hospital Administration MBA in Hospital Administration – Regular full time 2 year Course in prestigious institutes like IIM Calicut will surely render nice job opportunities after completion of programme. 
  • MSW – Master of Social Work ,If you are planning to do IELTS and leave to European Countries, US or Australia, MSW in Medicine and Psychiatry is a good option for nurses after their graduation particularly for those who likes to work in European countries or US. Letsdiskuss
