The only hospital that I've heard of here that pays differently is the VA hospital. I think that it is about $2 difference an hour, maybe? I think there starting pay for ADN is around $16, and BSN $18. Anyway, don't quote me on that, but if I remember correctly, that's what it is. Personally, I wouldn't work for them as an ADN graduate because we have 12 other hospitals in the area that start ADN nurses out at the same as BSN, and that's anywhere from $18 to $20 an hour. So, really, I would say, that where I am, it doesn't matter. Like the others said, I think the difference is in the managerial positions. I think eventually, that the future is headed towards the BSN, but, hey, if you feel that you need the BSN, you can always do it later. Don't worry about it right now.
