ADN with a non-nursing BS, here. I'm trying to plan my further education. My employer wants a BSN by 5 years, but I have an opportunity to skip it and get an MSN. Do hospitals let you do that, or do they specifically want that BSN

I feel kind of silly doing a BSN when I could do the MSN, like I'm wasting time and money.

Why don’t you ask your employer?

Oh, I plan to. I just haven't started the job yet. As soon I pass the NCLEX, we're going to sign papers and I'll get to pick HR's brain about all kinds of things. But right now, I'm using some down time to look at school programs and whatnot.
