It depends, a lot of hospitals require a bachelors to get a nursing job. But that doesn't mean that you can't become a nurse with an associate. One of my best friends became a nurse with her associates and then got her bachelors degree while she was working. A lot of hospitals also encourage you to get get certain degrees or certifications to advance in your nursing career. If you want to be a manager in nursing you're required a bachelor or even a masters, if you want to become a nurse practitioner it requires your masters, it just depends on the nursing path you want to take.
