Well...my suggestion is this...look into both programs and discuss your options with academic advisors at both schools
and then determine what is most important for you. I'm in a similar boat...only I graduated with a B.A. in English in 99. I chose the Associates route for a few reasons...
1) Tuition & Fees I couldn't afford tuition at a 4 year college
2) I already had my Bachelor's and some of the universities in Chicago offer a bridge program for the Master's when you have a non-nursing Bachelor's and have earned your RN. I do plan on getting my Master's and having the hospital where I work pay for it.
3) Time...I want to start having children before I'm 30 and the Associate's route was the quickest option for me. Furthermore...I'm really unhappy with my current job want to get on with the rest of my life A.S.A.P.!!!
Now...These are just MY reasons for choosing an ADN program. Make out a list of things that are important for you and discuss these things with the advisors. Also, check out some of the other posts about this very question. I hope this helps and you find the path that suits you best! Best of Luck!!
