communication, leadership, and critical thinking. These
programs also offer more clinical experience in nonhospital
settings. A bachelor's degree or higher is often necessary for
administrative positions, research, consulting, and teaching.
Generally, licensed graduates of any of the three types of
education programs (bachelor's, associates, or diploma)
qualify for entry-level positions as a staff nurse. However,
some employers may require a bachelors degree.
