    In Alabama, many hospitals hire both LPN's and RN's. The hospital I am working for right now has never asked me to obtain my BSN.

    OMG yes. I work in a level 1 trauma hospital, in a specialty. You are fine.

    I'm in Connecticut and in my hospital they do hire ADN nurses but only to specific areas. You wouldn't get hired to the ICU or in informatics without a BSN. That's true for most of the big hospitals in this state. The more acute the area, the less likely you'll be hired without a degree.
    What areas would I be hired in ?

    Here in DFW it is hard to get an acute care position with just a two year degree. Not impossible, but hard. If you know someone or have years of experience you have a shot. Otherwise it is unlikely and all the local hospitals require BSN to be obtained within 3-5 years depending on the institution.

    Yes. I was hired in as ASN. Into an icu. I have my bachelors now, but I did that for me.
    Same here. I started in a hospital as a LPN ( worked med-surg and infusion therapy ), got my ADN, then my BSN. But I work with several nurses who are ADN's with no plans to obtain their BSN. Of course now that I have had my BSN for a while I recently decided to get my MSN.
