- by DeLySh Feb 26, '07Does 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?
Thanks for the information.

- Feb 26, '07 by helix122333No, 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).
- Feb 26, '07 by DeLyShThank 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!!!

- Feb 26, '07 by DeLyShThey don't???????
- Feb 26, '07 by GardenDoveI don't know, but they don't.
- Feb 26, '07 by helix122333GardenDove is correct, they don't. I thought it was weird too....but there it is.
- Feb 27, '07 by DeLyShWOW!!!
Thanks for the info. You guys really cleared things up for me.
- Feb 27, '07 by saftman22What 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.
