i am currently in a program in nj for associates in science and diploma in nursing. i keep hearing mixed answers that it is hard to get a job without a bsn. i tried to do some research and i cannot find any threads or forums that talk about having a diploma and an associates in science degree together. i only see people talking about just diploma, adn, or bsn. i was wondering if having an associates in science plus the diploma in nursing is pretty much similar to a adn when it comes to finding jobs. also, i would just be looking for a general med-surg position.
