I gave wrong information earlier. It took me a while, but I got in touch with the recruiter from long beach. The higher degree is what counts and must have either CCNE or NLNAC accreditation, but it has to be completed before you are considered. I applied a month before my BSN with proper accreditation was complete, and they would not consider me.

The thing about veterans' preference is that it doesn't guarantee you will be hired. It does give your application more weight compared to other applicants with comparable skills and experience--that is, if it comes down to you and another similarly qualified applicant who is not a vet, you will get preference. But if you don't have all the qualifications they are looking for or if the other candidate is far better qualified than you, they don't have to hire you. The same guidelines applies to military spouse hiring preference.
