I am plan on continuing to take the prerequisites for a BSN program ( though ADN may be necessary). I have no plans on furthering my education past the BSN Degree. I think that for a nurse to at least have his/her BSN is going to be very important for the future. I can already tell this by reading the classifieds and talking with nurses that most employers want nurses to have their BSN. I have heard and I do not know if this is true or not where I live some hospitals prefer an BSN prepared nurse and will not a permit an ADN nurse to stay on the floor unless he/she intends on going back to school for their BSN. And some jobs are only for a BSN or a hire prepared nursing in a hospital setting. I have given alot of thought and did research and talked with many nurses about all three Nursing Education paths ADN, Diploma and BSN. All prospective nursing students have to start at the educational level that fits into their needs. Know matter what level a student decides to begin with becoming a nurse is learning experience everday he/she is at work. Good Luck and God Bless all of you where ever you choose to begin or end up up in your nursing career.
