Does your employer hire ADN's? or only those with BSN's? or have they set a time limit on when everyone needs to acquire a BSN?

I'm finishing up pre-req's to apply to nursing schools in 2015 and want to know what the market is like right now. There are a lot of 'rumors' floating around the pre-nursing classes at my college, but I'm not sure that I trust all of that second hand information.

I do plan on eventually obtaining a BSN, but for financial reasons it's best for me to start with an ADN, find a job, then work on my BSN (probably online) while working to start paying off loans.

I know every location is different (I live near Ft Lewis), but I thought a thread like this would be great for others to see as well.

Franciscan Health Services does not have a preference for either ADN vs BSN, nor do they have any set time limit to obtain a BSN. In fact there is no pay difference for a nurse with a BSN.

What FHS does have is tuition reimbursement, so once you spend a year with them you can apply for a 3000.00/yr tuition reimbursement. It helped pay for my BSN!
