Thats what I said,......................BSN makes more in a management position.
Totally depends on the person/position and facility.
At our hospital ASN and BSN make exactly dime for dime the same as a new grad, then it depends on performance raises. We have plenty of 5 year exp ASNs who make more than some with 5years of exp who have their BSN.
There are "certain" management positions that only hire a BSN, so well they would make 100% more than an ASN, because an ASN could not even apply for the job.
another thing to consider----I believe ~~at least our instructors told us that BSN students have a lower pass rate with NCLEX. Maybe that was just at our school, but I did look my former schools pass rate up online and the ASNs did have a higher pass rate.
Once you have your ASN, you can bridge to your BSN--very desirable programs out there that offer that.
