  1. Usually it's best to aim for the highest degree possible. So I encourage you to enroll in the bachelor's nursing program.

    However, if it's more convenient, you can get your associate's degree and an RN -- and then complete your bachelor's later. My granddaughter did that -- and then took some of the classes for her bachelor's online.

  2. Actually, I would argue for a Masters degree. Master Nurses get the jobs they want, at the salary they want, especially speciallized nurses such as cardiology, NP, pediatric cardiology, pediatric ICU, etc.

  3. I agree, Bob. But my granddaughter landed her first nursing job in a pediatric ICU in Detroit. With the nursing shortage in some parts of the country, hospitals are crying for help. She's thinking about going for a masters if she wants to go into nursing education or administration.

  4. I disagree with you bob, many Master's prepared nurses make less money than those who have ADN's. Since I am an ADN nurse who is now one class short of a BSN, I think I know who makes the most money. If you are a hospital nurse with good differentials and base pay along with benefits, you can make much more money and if you work in a facility that offers tuition reimbursement, you can go on and get a BSN for little or no cost.
