Hey, NJ nurses: ADN or BSN?

  1. Hey, this is a question for tri-state area nurses. I'm planning to eventually become a CRNA so I can either get my ADN or accelerated BSN at this point in my life, but I MUST find a job afterwards working in a large Hospital ICU, preferably a teaching hospital like UMDNJ or Hackensack.

    My question is if it has been easier/harder/the same for you to find a particular job because of the degree you had. Am I as attractive with an ADN?

    I know ADN schools don't offer pathophysiology nor pharmacology in a spearate course. Is this a big disadvantage?

    I have found no difference in job opportunities or salary. My advice is go for your ADN and then if you want to further your education you can have your employer pay for it.
