Hello, I'm looking for input from anyone who works at the bigger hospitals here in MA: MGH, BWH, BMC, UMASS etc.
I'm attending a nursing program (ASN) this fall that is now under review from the ACEN and their approval is with warning (BON). I work full time and have debt from a Masters so this is my only option right now.
From what I understand as long as the approval from the BON goes through again I will be okay. There are some RN-BSN programs online that don't require accreditation (yes they are very limited). Some of these programs do require experience working first which would be impossible to get in the Boston area without a BSN anyway.
My question is, do magnet hospitals require students to come from accredited schools
for BOTH the ASN and BSN portion, or do they just look at BSN? Has anyone done this in the recent years? I'm worried the lists of RN-BSN programs that accept unaccredited coursework are outdated.
