Poll: what is your highest Nursing degree

  1. What is your highest level of education? If a non nursing degree, please feel free to add a comment.

    I meant to add that I did put a 21 day limit on this poll. It seems that should be sufficient, don't you think?

    I am a nurse via a diploma program; I also attended a university for ~ 3 semesters; I have taken LOTS Community College courses--equivalent to an Assoc Degree, not in nursing--and, when I was an Infection Control Nurse, a graduate level 4 quarter Epidemiology course that included a research project and paper.
    I never know how to answer this question. I don't seem to fit into any of the categories.

    The three major educational paths to registered nursing are a bachelor's degree, an associate degree, and a diploma from an approved nursing program. Nurses most commonly enter the occupation by completing an associate degree or bachelor's degree program. Individuals then must complete a national licensing examination in order to obtain a nursing license. Further training or education can qualify nurses to work in specialty areas, and may help improve advancement opportunities.
