If this is offered in your state, is it wise to pursue, or should an ADN get a BSN first? My question has to do with employability. I am a current nursing student in an ADN program, middle aged with a couple years nurse aide experience. My goal is mobility and increased income. There are many incentives for people to go into nursing but not much to keep them there without more education. Another factor is age. I don't want to be stuck on a busy floor with varicose veins and back pain until I'm 65 or older.
