Valerie’s Answer

Absolutely, you will be considered, provided you have taken the NCLEX-RN exam, passed, and have applied for, or already recieved your license.

Associate degree nurses currently have the same independence in practice as BSNs. There are states, as well as hospital systems which will require you to pursue a Bachelor’s degree within a year of hire.

A Bachelor’s degree will be required to advance to positions in leadership, and management.

Valerie recommends the following next steps:

Take the NCLEX exam.
If you have already taken the exam and passed; recieved your license; then you are ready to apply for your first nursing position! Good Luck!

ANTHONY’s Answer

Yes, you will definitely be considered so long as you pass your NCLEX RN exam. Although most hospital or nursing facilities prefers BSN nurses, but most will still hire ADN and will require them to complete their BSN degree while they are employed. Goodluck

Heidi’s Answer

Yes, you definitely will. Whether you got to a community college, 4 year college or a hospital school of nursing, the one thing that they all have in common is that after you graduate you have to sit for the N-CLEX exam and pass.

Lisa’s Answer

Absolutely you will be considered for many jobs. Here in Texas many hospitals are requiring a BSN within 2 years of hire. Hospitals have to have a certain percentage of their nurses have a BSN in order to achieve Magnetic Status. I would encourage you to go ahead and apply to a program to start on your BSN. Most can be done online. Good luck and congratulations!
