Well, first of all, i would like to say that for an ADN program, it takes longer than 2 years. Try 3 years. YOu have to take several prerequisites before even being considered for the program. The bottom line is this, in my opinion, we all take the same state board exam. I totally believe in furthering one's education,however, i do believe that as a nurse, one will learn most on the job. I am an ADN graduate, and i have met some of the finest LVN's out in the field. They are successful,because of their experiences in the field. I haven't heard of an easy Nursing curriculum yet, Nursing school is hard No matter what program you are in. OUr class started with 65 and we graduated 25. All programs deserve respect, and you need to do what your heart desires. Most adn's probably wish that they could have attained their BSN, and most want to someday achieve that, but a lot of us do what is more convenient at the time. If you can attain your BSN without any problems, i would go for it. good luck.
