MSN – Patient Care Svcs Administration
At a Glance
One of the best things about getting a master of science in nursing (MSN) is the ability to specialize in one area of medicine. Some choose to become experts in a certain patient age group, type of disease, or part of the body, but another choice available is to specialize in administration. Patient care services and administration is a growing field in nursing, so workers are in high demand across the country.
With the high cost of malpractice insurance and facility selection greatly affecting revenue, hospitals and private practices across the country are turning to nurses who have specialized in patient care services to learn how to keep their patients happy and safe. Some of the skills students learn in this field include customer service, public relations, innovation, infection prevention, and leadership. Students work closely with patients to solve problems, which are often not related to their medical condition, but are rather related to the care they are receiving.
This can be a stressful job, as students often are communicating with people who are very emotional or even scared. However, it can be a rewarding job as well, since students are helping patients get the most out of their medical care. In addition, students help the facility run more smoothly and efficiently, saving doctors and other nurses time and making sure that the right people are dealing with the right patients.
