Tips For Maximizing Your Placement At A Medical School With Part-Time RN Pays

Preceptor Pay  | A question I’ve been asked several times is whether or not the NCLEX-PN or ICD-PN earn a Master’s degree while working as a practical nurse practitioner. In short, the answer to that question is no. While it’s true that you can earn a Master’s degree in nursing if you complete an additional four years of study, you can also complete the Master’s in less than four years if you complete the PN program as a RN. What this means to you is that if you complete your RN degree as a practical nurse, you can pursue a Master’s degree later on in your career when you’re ready. However, if you were working as a licensed practical nurse without a Master’s degree, you can’t go back and earn another.

While it was mentioned earlier that there are differences between preceptor pay for the RN and the MSN, that doesn’t mean that you can’t use the same school to earn both. Most hospitals now have a two-year track programs, while smaller ones may have a three-year track. Still, the difference between the length of time between your Master’s degree and the start of your preceptor pay is insignificant when compared to the time spent on clinical training. You should take a look at all the online schools you find that offer preceptor pay before enrolling so you can get a better idea of how quickly you’ll earn your next degree.

By the end of your second year of work as a practical nurse, you will be able to take the licensing exam to become a registered nurse, so if you want to become a licensed nurse practitioner you can begin your third year at the beginning of your preceptor pay period. If you complete all your coursework in your fourth year, you will have completed your entire degree in less than four years, which will put you in a great place to get the job you want. You can always pursue other nursing positions or pursue a Master’s in nursing in three or four years once you have completed your master’s program, but it’s definitely worth it to finish your degree earlier if you can since these are the least difficult to get in most fields.
