In fact, hospitals looking to achieve Magnet status from the American Nurses Credentialing Center encourage their practicing nurses to earn master's degrees. That's why, according to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics, demand for nurses with advanced skills will increase 20 percent by 2026, which is much faster than the national average.
