Seems like my BSN is worth less than the paper it's printed on!! They say they prefer BSN's, but in reality why are all the ADN's getting jobs?? Sorry if I sound just a bit bitter...
In most places there is very little pay difference between BSN and ASN.
In DFW both types of graduates are having an equally difficult time finding work. A few hospitals say BSN preferred and the hospital I am an extern at recently made their scholarship program (where they pay for school in return for a work commitment after graduation) something only BSN candidates can recieve. However, I am currently an ASN student and got the scholarship from them last year. They are re-upping for Magnet status, so I assume that has something to do with the change.
