Hi, I am a 25 year old student and have a BS in Biology and a 3.2 GPA and I am currently taking pre-reqs at Troy University of Montgomery, AL. I applied for the associates degree program at Troy and won't have an answer until May. I know that almost all hospitals are refusing to hire RNs with Associates degrees so I plan to take the associates degree program, complete it then take the license exam become to an RN, then go back to Troy to take the RN to BSN program. I have checked and their are no accelerated BSN programs in Montgomery, AL. During the summer I plan to volunteer at a hospital to gain experience. What are your opinions on my plan? Does anyone have any advice they can offer for someone in my situation?
