I posted this in the general nursing forum, but it was in the middle of a big long thread so I figured I'd ask here as well since it was likely to get overlooked in the discussion.
Regarding degrees ... ADN, BSN... If you get a 2-yr degree, pass your boards and become and RN, what can you not do that someone who gets a 4-yr degree, passes their boards and becomes an RN can do?
Also, what is the difference between an LPN and an RN? I'm sorry if I sound totally clueless, but the fact is...I am! :chuckle
