Just got ASN from Excelsior College. Had BA in liberal arts from another university. An EC Masters Degree is actually less credits for me than a BSN! Added bonus, I can enroll in the masters program before I take NCLEX (not so for BS).
What I'm wondering is: will Magnet hospitals still hire me? I'd think having an MS trumps having a BS. But not sure what rules hospitals must follow to maintain Magnet accreditation. Usually all nurses have to be BSN...
Also, looking for hospitals with good preceptor programs. Suggestions?
Anyone know of nurse practitioner programs that are online or part time?
Too bad EC grads can't work in CA. Anyone doing this at a federal facility?
