Alright, this topic has probably been done to death... but since I'm new and I couldn't find the exact answer I wanted, bear with me.
I live in Washington (near Seattle), and just today I listened to a nursing adviser drone on about how an ADN is pointless and no one will hire you unless you have your BSN. I'm applying to two ADN programs next quarter, and now I'm freaking out. I'm already on full student loans, while my husband works full-time to pay the bills, and another year of tuition at a university rate after my three years at a community college seems insane.
To top it off, the adviser said that in a few years Washington state is going to require ALL RN's have their BSN.
Anyone in Washington that can attest to the job market in 2012? Do I have a shot at a descent job out of school without a BSN? And those of you who have a BSN, did you feel it was worth the tuition?
