I'm wanting to become a neonatal nurse and wondering what type of degree I should pursue. I have been reading that you need to be an RN (either an associate's or bachelor's degree). Is that correct or is one preferred over the other? Right now I currently have a bachelor's degree in Biology and I'm wondering if I should just stick with an associate's degree for a quicker route or should I go to school for the extra years to get my BSN? I also know there are accelerated BSN nursing programs out there that last 2-3 years for college graduates that already have a non-nursing bachelor's degree. My only worry is that it might be too competitive to get into one of these programs.
Thank you for your help!!
