Ik your question wasn’t directed towards me but I work at a hospital & they rarely hire associates anymore because in order for a hospital to be magnet certified a certain percentage of nurses have to be BSN. I know nursing assistants that were at my job for 7 years & couldn’t get a job here with and ADN. I was also told that if I got an ADN it would be difficult for me to get a job where I currently work. But there are hospitals in the area that I think still hire ADN’s. Norwalk, Danbury, Yale, St. Vincent’s, etc are a few that I’ve heard that will, I don’t work there so I don’t know for sure but I’m general I do believe it’s harder to get a hospital job with an ADN.
