A BSN is a bach nursing degree. An ADN is a non-bach nursing degree.
I'm not trying to be obtuse, but it's that simple.
A non-BSN bach degree means little in nursing. You have a BSN, or not. Your degrees in other fields do not directly translate to nursing.
You can get some credit, such as in 'clincal ladders' for a non-nursing bach. However, the advantages such as in administrative positions etc. where BSN is preferred normally means BSN, not RN+BS.
RN+BS = ADN. BSN=BSN.
Sorry. That's my experience. I have an ADN and a bach degree in Biology.
Look at an Accelerated program that will translate your bach to a BSN.
Quote from RN 4 U
So yes, there a more management, leadership opportunities for bachelor degree holders and you will be able to enter into advance nursing career fields with your bachelors such as research, educator, nursing anesthesia, etc. all require a bachelors degree.
All these fields mentioned above normally require a BSN, not just a non-nursing bach degree.
