Washington State Requirements

    Does Washington require that all RN's have a bachelor's?

    I'm looking to be licensed in the state so I can travel and noticed that they kept saying "applicants shall have a bachelor's degree." Does that mean all RN's in Washington are baccalaureate prepared?

    Just curious.

    Thanks for the information.

    No, Washington state does not require a BA, in fact there really is no huge pay differences between the two. I am a LPN currently laddering up to RN (non-BA program).

    Thank you, Helix. That really confused me. I didn't think anyone was requiring bachelor's degrees.

    Thank you, again, for clearing that up for me!!!

    What I have noticed here in washington being an Associated Degree holder is most hospital prefer a BSN and will hire a BSN before an ADN (if they have the choice). The other thing I have noticed is the only thing a BSN gets you is a mangement position if you want it. The pay in almost all instances is exactly the same, based on your experience. Matter of fact I make more than some nurses with a BSN strictly based on experience.
