    I plan to get my degree, work a few years and move out of state. A non-accredited school isn't an option for me. I want to be able to move wherever my heart, or my husband's heart, desires. I knew this going in to my prereqs, so it wasn't a big deal. Get a 4.0, ace all tests, and get accepted into nursing school the first year (okay, it was a big deal, never mind).

    Does anyone know what the situation would be if the ADN program was not accredited but the BSN program is? I graduated from an ADN program that is state BON approved, but not accredited by the NLN. However, I did my RN to BSN program at at CCNE accredited school. So far, this has not been an issue for me. Do they look more heavily at the original school of nursing, or the highest degree achieved?
