I am planning on applying for a ADN program. I am thinking that after I get that I could go on to get a BSN. How important or how much difference does it make between the two?... Read More

    No difference whatsoever where I work, same benefits, vacation, etc... Only real difference is if you want to go on. But if you just want to work, I see no reason to go thru it. You will work the EXACT SAME JOB.

    I am a BSN from the beginning. My anecdotal experience over the years has been that ADN programs put out far-superior-clinically-skilled nurses than BSN programs. It will be additional work going from ADN to BSN, but the clinical education from the ADN program is much my experience. When I was in my BSN program there was alot more encouragement to move into "management" jobs than there ever was "clinical-bedside-nursing" jobs.

    Our facility pays $1/hour more for BSN prepared nurses and ADN's are not considered for management positions. Depends on your career choices.
