I am preparing to apply to nursing school now and, upon discussion with a friend, made the comment that I am applying to both BS and AS degreed programs - because it seems the type of degree has little influence on (initial) job function, title, duties, pay, etc. My friend stated that she has a close friend who is a traveling RN. Suposedly this person said that you must have a BSN to be a transport or flight nurse. I have never seen this addressed in the AS vs BS discussions here - or anywhere! Do you know if this is true (i.e. must possess a bachelors degree to purse transport/flight nursing)? Thanks for any clarification you can provide me!
