After earning a bachelor’s degree, simulation tends to play a smaller role in the graduate learner’s preparation. In the case of MSN programs, typically learners can specialize in either healthcare administration or in nursing education. Other opportunities also exist (such as informatics, research, medical affairs, etc.), but ultimately, hands-on patient care plays a smaller role.
