I am a new nurse and am struggling to find a job without further education and am hoping someone can help.
I switched careers when I lost my job in 2009 and went back to receive my ADN RN in 2012. Since receiving my RN I have been applying for jobs but seems that unless I have a BSN I am not even being considered. So I figure I should return to obtain my BSN, my problem is that I have a Bachelors of Arts degree and as I research options I see that I can go right for my MSN because I already have a bachelors degree. I am concerned that if I get my MSN instead of BSN I would be overlooked because I may be over qualified. At this point in my life I don't foresee looking for jobs that require an MSN only BSN however I don't want to kick myself in the future for not getting my MSN. According to most of the schools I have looked at the MSN is only 3 more courses.
Any suggestions? RN to BSN or RN to MSN?
