associate level diploma

  1. I was wondering as a potential graduate nurse (maybe sometime around 2020, 2021) what kind of jobs can o start off with once i graduate, and after take my nclex?

    I ask because i know there's a requirement to have at least the bsn, but i won't be there yet, ill be working toward my masters hopefully (as i have bachelor credits) on my pace.

    100% dependent upon where you live and want to work. In some areas, not having a BSN isn't a hindrance to getting a job. In others, it is. Start looking at the local job offerings and see what they require in the various different specialties.

    There is no BSN requirement for licensure anywhere. Yet..

    A lot is missing from this question.

    Do you mean what kind of job can a graduate nurse who has taken but not passed the NCLEX get? Varies by employer. Some will hire with a stipulation you must pass to keep your job. Some just make you wait until you have a proper license in the state you are working.

    Your "knowledge" about a requirement to have a BSN is flawed.

    ok MaryJean that's what i was asking, i think around 2020 there will be, that'd probably be around the time i should worry, now i should just focus on getting through nursing school first. I can always finish to get my Bsn or Msn, i just would like to start working in the field after i finish with the program☺

    It is not nor is it in the works to be a requirement for licensure. It is employer driven.

    In my neighborhood, ASN nurses can be hired with a contract stipulating that you'll complete your BSN (or higher) within 3-5 years. Follow up with your local hospitals.
