On hospital job applications, I often see the question: 'what is your highest education achieved?'or something to that effect. I have 2 bachelor degrees (one in psych and one in nursing, the latter was accelerated) and a Juris Doctor (which I completed in between the bachelor degrees). I have naturally wanted to choose doctorate but recently have been inclined to choose bachelors because I think nursing jobs (especially floor nursing jobs) only really care about your NURSING degrees ... and by selecting doctorate I feel that I am misrepresenting that I have a DNP or something like that. Also, I don't want to weed myself from an applicant computer search by choosing doctorate and getting filtered out as potentially overqualified. Another nurse I know with the same background (we are not that rare a breed anymore) has had the same issue.
