Hello everyone. I just graduated with my ASS in nursing and now work as an RN.
This fall, I will start the bachelor's program through Oregon Health and Science University (my classes are online, but my clinicals will be in my hometown). Anywhooooo.... I have a question regarding the degree I am seeking. I have done some research but still don't know a real answer.
Is there a difference between when something says a Bachelor's of Science with a major in Nursing and when something says BSN (Bachelor's of Science in Nursing)????
The reason I asked is because somebody who just graduated from Oregon Health and Science University's Nursing Program has come to my town to start working as an RN.
Her name badge says RN, BS. I asked her why it says BS instead of BSN and she said it's because she doesn't have a BSN, she just has a BS. She also said her major was in nursing (hense, the reason she now works as an RN). She said she did not know this until shortly before graduation!
So basically, I'm confused. I didn't know there was a difference. My program info documents says stuff like : Bachelor's of Science with a major in Nursing, and then later documents will say BSN.
So what am I going to get?!?!?
Any ideas, opinions, clarifications would be appreciated!
