I’m a nursing student set to graduate in late March with my ADN.  I have a BA in a different field (education).  We’re hoping to relocate to the Seattle area but I’ve heard that a BSN is strongly preferred.  And I’ve heard they’re desperate for nurses.  I am not the type of person to leap into anything blindly.  Any information and advice would be appreciated!

It completely depends on where you want to live and work in Seattle. Hospitals (UW, Harborview, Virginia Mason, Seattle Childrens etc) within Seattle are unlikely to hire an ADN as they tend to pick from those attending BSN programs at the universities there. However, you may have luck in hospitals in the smaller surrounding cities. I know Providence in Everett has a residency program that accepts ADNs as long as you agree to have a BSN within 5 years. There may be others further south that I'm less familiar with. Check hospital job boards and see what their requirements are. They often say if a BSN is required or strongly preferred. Also, if clinics are an interest, a member of my ADN class got a clinic job in Seattle. Hope that helps!
