I am currently completing my ADN program in a community college. I really want to work in a magnet hospital, but I DO NOT want to get a BSN; rather I would like to pursue a Bachelors degree in multimedia, as I feel it's much more potent for teaching and management positions with a MSN. My question is:
Can I get into a magnet hospital with a ADN->(Any BA/BS degree)-> MSN degree?
Or do I HAVE TO get a BSN?

Most Philadelphia area Magnet hospitals only hiring new RN's with BSN or MSN as initial degree for past 2 years. Look to see job ads in your area.
BA degree in anything other than nursing not considered.
Institute of Medicine and ANCC have made recommendation that for Magnet facility 80% RN staff have BSN by 2020.
