it's your clinical experiences that get your hired, and you need to ACTUALLY KNOW HOW TO DO THINGS. I know a lot ppl who don't even have ADN, but they are working as visiting nurse, still NURSE! what makes them qualify is the experience, not BSN degree. Plus, how many BSN out there are without a job? I see NO point to emphasize on that accelerated BSN MUST BE BETTER THAN ADN-BSN. The outcome is really the same, or else you tell me what exactly the difference is? In hospital, BSN just got a couple thousand more per year than ADN once hired, many places don't even differentiate the two.
Plus, ADN is able to advance into BSN, it's just matter of time, I see no difference between the two, unless you claim to have a master degree or beyond~
for BSN, you just finish your pre-requisites in 2-3 yrs and then apply to program, while ADN can finish pre-requisites in maybe less than 1 yr, once they complete ADN, BSN is just another year of time to study. so what's the difference really??? just because it's called accelerate, its' NOT really, at least not ACCELERATING your skills to be honest!
and for someone like the owner of this post, she have to start from beginning anyway, meaning taking all those time to learn pre-requisites and then apply to programs.
seriously, there's no better degree, only better nurse!
