It doesn't make a difference here, either. I'm in an ADN program, but plan to get my BSN eventually... because its needed for management positions, and because although your hospital doesn't pay more, another one might, and many do.
Also, education affords you a lot more than a greater salary in many cases.
I plan on getting my BSN so that I'll have greater opportunity as a professional nurse, but I don't plan on going any higher than that.... I don't want to be in school forever.
Here they start new grads at $19/hour.
