i have a question

  1. I was reading this book and it said that RN's with an ADN degree is an assistant to RN's with their BSN. Is this true?
    Thanks for your help.

    Is there a way to get rid of a double post?

    Nope. Unless you PM a moderator and ask them to delete it.

    It will just slip away.....

    No reason to be sorry! It takes some messing around a bit to figure these boards out!

    Welcome!

    Wonder if thats the book that stated in Nursing duties of Darning Drs socks and scrubbing the floors for $.02 a day.
    Is there a title to the book that you would like to share, I have a good friend that would love to read it and I would love to watch her read it and watch her spit her coffee out lol.

    No,
    but I did read on one website that an RN ADN is considered a "technical" nurse while BSN's are considered professional. I don't agree with it though.

    Hi! I have never heard that an ADN is an assistant to a BSN!
    I am an ADN and it means that I am an RN, just at a BSN is an RN.
    When I was going to go back to get my nurse practitioners license (which I never did), they were going to give me 250 extra credits because our ADN program was superior to their BSN program year for year. Sooooo. I believe that an RN is an RN. The only place it seems to matter is in the government positions, as a BSN receives the managerial positions. I have been a Supervisor of a Home Health Agency, not to mention a handful of other jobs, some manager positions, some not. So go for your ADN degree, you can always add to it later if you so desire.
