Hi. I am new here and desperately hoping for some advice. I have a BS in Business as well as an MS in Communications - after 10 years of serving Corporate America and feeling nothing in return, I have decided I need to serve a greater good. I am going back to school to be an RN. It seems many hospitals are currently, or soon will be, changing their philosophy and will be hiring BSNs only.
I am in the Nashville, TN area and likely will not graduate until late 2014 or early 2015. Should I not even consider Associate degree programs at this point and look at only Bachelor's programs?!?!
The associate program is attractive due to cost, but I certainly do not want to waste the next 2-3 years of my life. Please share your thoughts and advice. Also, if you specifically work in a local hospital - please let me know if your hospital has definite plans to move to hiring BSNs only!
Thank-you so much in advance!!!
