It is not necessarily easier to get a job as a BSN than as a RN. Right now there is no difference, if any difference at all in pay between an RN and BSN. Some people in certain states may get a few extra dollars per hour for a BSN, but for the most part, there is no difference in pay. THe only thing you can do with a BSN that you cant do as a RN is teach. Like teaching in nursing schools. Usually, the nurses (People) who are LVNs that go for their BSN, are looking to eventually advance their career to a masters or achieve their BSN so they can teach. If I were you, I'd go the quick 8 mo, and be a RN, but I don't know your current family or financial situation. If you see yourself wanting to get your Masters, the BSN is a pre-requisite. Its all about you......and what you're planning to do.
