I am getting ready to start my ADN program back in Ohio in January and had posted here previously asking about the job market for ADN new grads from other states with some discouraging but not surprising responses about how tough the market for new grads from anywhere, even here in Cali, is. My boyfriend moved out here a year ago for his job and I still have two years back in Ohio as it is so I've been wracking my brain trying to decide if I will be able to come out here after my ADN or if we are staring down a 4+ year separation instead of the already unbearable 2 years. At my program orientation the Profs were telling us that with the one summer we have free, a semester before our last for the program, we should look into getting started on BSN coursework if we want to go that route and that made me wonder if I started a BSN program here in Cali if that would make me more marketable to the hospitals and help me get a job early in my BSN. My question to all of you is do you think this would help...? Even more so I do want to get my MSN eventually would I be better off skipping my BSN and shooting for an MSN program here?
