“My degree has opened opportunities as a nurse educator, a preceptor to new nurses. It sets me apart from my peers as far as education goes because as an officer in the army everyone has a bachelor’s degree. But to go ahead and get a master’s as well shows that you really care about your job and want opportunity. I did hear this quote awhile back. I don't know where I got it from, ‘Less than 1 percent of army lieutenants have a master’s, and less than 8 percent of army captains have a master’s.’” - Online MSN Graduate
