I am in my last semster of nursing school..yay! Will receive my ADN 12/04. If I already posses a BA in Psych and a MEd. in Health Education, is it really necessary to get my BSN????? I really would like to do a research job, particularly psychiatric research, preferrably NOT in Texas.....would like to go to mid-east coast. But, my main question is mainly is that BSN really needed for someone like me?
