Right now I am pre-nursing in an associates program. I've decided that associates is best for me for the time being as I have a one year old and need to get right to work as soon as I can. I plan on completing a bridge program later as my son gets older. My mother in law is a nurse with her associates, and she has been helping me and answering most of my questions. She's said in our particular location, a lot of hospitals prefer bachelors over associates, associates with experience, or associates (as long as they start a bridge program within a certain amount of time).
I don't know if this is fairly common everywhere, but I do not plan on practicing in my current state of residence. My husband and I are making plans to move once we have finished school. Anyone have experience in this? If you have your associates, was it hard to find work? Did you go for your bachelors?
