I am an RN with an ADN and about 8 months of experience working as a nurse. I live in the Boston area and it's a very competetive market for nurses. I want to make myself as marketable as possible but I also dont' want to waste time and money.
I have a previous bachelor's degree (in Biology) so I always thought that I'd go straight for my MSN rather than get a second bachelor's in nursing. But all the MSN programs require me to specialize and I really don't want to specialize so soon as a new nurse. I like being a staff nurse! So for purposes of mobility should I go for the BSN? It would only require about 30 credits and cost ~$10,000. My salary probably wouldn't change but it would allow me to go work in a hospital (I currently work in a subacute SNF).
Any thoughts/advice? Am I wasting my time and money going for the BSN?
