THANK YOU FOR SERVING!!
I live in Indianapolis. The focus here is for the hospitals to have their Magnet certification. With that, they require the nurses to be staffed with about 85% of the nurses having RN,BSN from a school with NLNAC or CCNE accreditation. DO NOT WASTE TIME SND MONEY GOING TO A SCHOOL WITHOUT THIS ACCREDITATION!! or your credits won't transfer to other schools and someone else applying for the job with this accreditation will get it over you. I recently went back to school after having my LPN for several years. Because I didn't go to a school with the right accreditation, I had to start over with people having no school or license at all. But if I don't get my RN, BSN then soon I won't have a job at all, even though I've been in nursing at my job for 16 years. Make wise choices now. It will pay off soon! Good luck to you!
