  • it depends on your associate's degree. If it's just a general liberal arts degree, there's not much you can do with it.

  • I have an Associates Degree and I am a RN...You can get lots of jobs with one. Of course your AD is just the beginning, you can get your Masters etc in which ever field you choose.

  • RN,Exec Secretary, Paralegal Experience in your field can help you as well. I am An RN with an associat degree, I worked in nursing school as an ER tech. Exec Secretaries can be lucrative, and many begin their experience in high school. Paralegals likewise. Id advise everyone to make sure you dont hate that job befor putting too much time into it. I want my BSN and advance degree, but when I found out I had MS I left the job I LOVED. I wanst fired..........but I quit before I killed someone for accidently screwing up a drip rate on a big gun antibiotic............and MRSA

  • What do you want to do with your life? Figure that out, and figure out what you need to get there. For me personally, I needed more than an AA Degree for my career, so I got my BA. Maybe you won't.
