    Oh!! Is THAT what she meant? I thought it was some butchery of "bachelor's" in the name of feminism. Like "herstory" or "womyn"

    I just love that there is an option to start as an ADN. I did very poorly in high school and now my kids give me the motivation to attend school, but I didn't have the academic background that a university would ever consider touching. My school has an open admission policy so I could start no matter what my background. Plus the amount of money for this school is much easier on my husband and I compared to a 4 year school. I won't even have a loan after this is over!

    In the end we all end up with the same licence, only a different degree so both are good options depending on your circumstances.

    I am in a BSN program and I was told that one of the main differences is the fact that BSN's have the opportunity to advance their career (admin/management), whereas ADN's are mostly limited to staffing. I was also told that employeers will prefer a BSN to an ADN ( I don't know how true it is...), but the pay for a BSN and ADN starts out the same. I hope that this helps...

    I certainly didn't mean it in an offensive way. It was meant in the same spirit as letting someone know they've walked out of the restroom with toilet paper on their shoe. Better on a message board than a resume.

    If I did offend you, original poster, I apologize.

    Me too . . . hopefully people have thicker skin and can see the humor. I've misspelled things and been ribbed about it.

    OP - welcome and keep posting.

    To answer your question if I could go back in time, I would get my BSN, especially before I got married or had kids. I beat it into my kid's heads all the time . . .college first, romance later.
