- 0May 28, '13 by nurse_nancyI am currently finishing up my first year at the community college for RN but was wondering if it is worth it to get a BSN? Are hospitals really looking for that? I know its saturated with nurses right now and will be hard getting a job either way. My school is doing a collaboration with one of the colleges and are offering me an accelerated RN-BSN program at CSULA that I go to concurrently while finishing up my RN. But if I ultimately plan to get my MSN should I even bother getting my BSN now? I have a BA in another subject that is irrevelant (Liberal Studies) to nursing. I looked up programs where I can do an RN-MSN if I have a bachelors in something else. Your opinion is appreciated. Thanks!

But I'm offered a chance to get into an accelerated RN-BSN program that I am suppose to do concurrently. I dont want to keep loaning and doing baby steps. I just want the most direct. What do you think?
