In California having your ADN RN is absolutely acceptable. I know many nurses that have found jobs with there ADN degree. Throughout LA county and in great Hospitals. Med-Surg, ER and in Surgery. There are also ADN to Masters of Nursing programs in California. I would look into that. Depending on what exactly you want to do with your Nursing career. If you have BA you can even apply to the PA program as soon as you complete your Science pre reqs. Good luck to you.
