AAS RN hiring trouble?

Hey everyone!

I am new to the board but I am trying to figure out what to do next to start my career as a nurse. I just graduated with my BS in Psych and am looking into the AAS nursing program at Concorde or other Community College. I have tried to apply to the Accelerated BSN programs in my state (CO) but have not been accepted due to lack of patient care/contact (I have no CNA, LPN, ect) My question is that if I go to the AAS program will I be able to find a job as an RN without a BSN? I have a BS already just not in nursing and if I get my AAS I will probably go for the RN to MSN programs. I just want to make sure that there are still places hiring new AAS grads to gain experience.

Thanks!
