    Any MBA or Nursing brahs? (career advice)

    I'm going to graduate with a degree in IT but it seems like most jobs are desktop support which doesn't appeal to me and am considering pursing a MBA or an associates in Nursing, because I've always liked the medical field and pictured myself working in a hospital. What kind of jobs would I be able to get with an MBA with only a years experience in IT? Thanks for the advice!

    what kind of degree in IT are you getting? you know there is more to IT than just desktop support.

    programmers, analysis (business and system), support (this includes desktop but also hardware, software), database design/maintenance, websites, SAP, Cisco, etc.

    The list goes on and on. First thing people think about is IT support and IT is much more than that. I'm in a business analysis role and that is what I love.

    Masters in IT? What kind? I seriously doubt a Masters will give you a peek into Desktop support only.

    I would recommend you try moving into IT professional services. Such as: System Integration, Data Warehousing, CRM, ERP. This will give you a business perspetive with strong technology bend. If you do this first, you then can pursue an MBA with IT focus. Going forward, to be a manager in any large company, you will need a good grounding in technology. You simply can't separate these two. Don't go into post grad education thinking about a mediocre role. Try and get into something now... and then pursue higher education to support your career.

    Nursing can be very boring. Can you imagine giving patients a sponge bath? Seeing sick people all day everyday? This takes a special kind of person. Plus, they work long shifts and you may be required to work in areas with nurse shortages.

    I'm getting a degree in Information Sciences and Technology. Its like a bunch of introduction classes, like intro to project management, intro to databases, networking, programming. I don't know any of these areas well though. I did have two classes on systems analysis. It seems like many jobs require much experience like years of experience.

    mba here... 1yr experience in IT and u want to go for MBA, i would not recommend that, that's not good use of $$$ unless u r rich and can afford it.

    find ur passion for IT and find a job that has a clear career path.

    don't go for nursing just to have a job, long hours and very stressful.

    all jobs require experience. it's life.

    My personal opinion, in IT you need experience and certifications. Experience means you have a good foundation of understanding of your area. certifications (because most have to be renewed every few years) shows that you are always up to date with the newest stuff in your area.

    You were given a bunch of intro classes, so what do you like? Once you know what you like, find a job that will allow you to get into that. This job won't be your dream job, but it will provide you with more information and understanding. With more information and understanding you can look at certifications.

    No one in IT knows everything, they specialize in certain things

    Murse here. I love the medical field and find it very interesting and exciting. I will definitely depend on which area of nursing you work. Just like any other career field, there are some areas that are boring. If you truly have an interest in healthcare I say go for it. Try to get a job in ED, OR, ICU, or any other specialty department. Feel free to PM me if you have any other questions
