Getting a job after attending an accelerated nursing program
- 0Feb 11 by Roo123Hi -
I'm thinking about applying to accelerated nursing programs of interest, but have recently heard that job opportunities for those who attend these accelerated programs (and do not have a degree in Nursing) have a tough time finding jobs.
Does anyone have any knowledge/experience on this matter that they may be able to share?
Thank you so much!
- 0Feb 11 by TU RNMaybe you're confusing "nursing degree" with "nursing license" and they just haven't passed boards? I don't see how it's possible to graduate a program without a degree unless it is, in fact, a scam of some kind. But yeah you're right about the job market. I wouldn't recommend it right now.
Nursing isn't a cash cow with guaranteed stability. As the number of people joining this profession approaches infinite, the pay/stability of those already working approaches zero.

I think it's about what you bring to the table, the opening of the position, if you're a good fit for the hospital, etc. You're just as likely to get a job as someone else in your same shoes as a new graduate having recently passed the NCLEX.
