Literally no one has cared about my previous, non-nursing degree since I started down this career path. It’s never counted for anything in terms of degree differential or employment requirements (A BA plus an RN is not a BSN). Idk how it is in Massachusetts but if it’s like my area, you’re a nurse with an associates degree.
If you’re asking about what it’s like to be an RN with a previous degree in English however, I think the critical thinking, communication, and creativity is super helpful. A lot of people go in to nursing from a very concrete, objective, science-based frame of mind and there’s so much subjectivity and shades of gray and balancing out competing needs that I think having a lit degree has been an asset to me.
