I am a new graduate from a nursing school
in NY. During the program, supposedly the school was "in the process" of getting NLN accreditation. I moved to Ca, passed the NCLEX and got my license already.
I tried applying at the VA and the nurse recruiter called me back the next day, with bad news that my school's accreditation did not meet the basic requirements to work there. I am currently enrolled in the RN-BSN program at GCU which IS accredited .. she said to apply again when I get my BSN
Will I be able to work anywhere in California as an RN if my ADN nursing program is not accredited? Or will I only be able to work after I finish my BSN program?
