Non-Nursing bachelors

caril4 caril4 (New) New

I am currently working towards my ADN at College of DuPage and am trying to plan to move on afterwards to get more education. I am torn if I should get my bachelor's in Psychology (just an interest) and than move on to get my master's in a nursing related field. Otherwise I would move on to get my BSN than MSN later. Would this effect my work? I'm just trying to figure out what would be my best/safest interest.

If you plan to continue working as a nurse, you will need your BSN. A non-nursing degrees will not add value to your career unless you already have a BSN.

It all depends on what your end goal is.
