I'm 23 and have decided I want to pursue nursing. I was wondering, here in Vegas, if hospitals will hire ADNs, and aren't tossing apps without BSN.
I'm going to have to work full-time and pay out of pocket, so the shorter and less-expensive route would be very beneficial to me, at the moment. I do plan on later obtaining a BSN; in the long-run I'd like to pursue becoming an NP.
Also, is there a stigma over Community versus State Colleges?
Any information is greatly appreciated!
