So i'm embarking on choosing a masters degree right now after getting the big YES from work (yay!)
I'm trying to decide whether to go for a research or taught. I'm a registered nurse so naturally it'd be a 'research methods in healthcare' degree (research based) or Advanced Nursing (taught) degree.
I'm still not 100% sure if i'd ever want to do a PhD although i'm seeing more and more benefits of having one with my colleagues but don't want to tunnel myself into a corner by struggling to do a PhD by having a taught masters degree?

I'd say that the majority of PhD students I've come across - myself included - have come from a taught Masters. It shouldn't paint you into a corner when it comes to a PhD, although it would help if your dissertation reflected the interests you might want to take further with a PhD (having said that, mine didn't!).Last edited by Klix88; 27-12-2014 at 12:25.

My MSc is in Advanced Nursing and I have had two fully funded PhD offers so definitely don't be put off a taught masters!
Best of luck
