The ADN program was a great and affordable way of getting your nursing degree, but most hospitals with Magnet status want their nurses to have a BSN. Both the ADN and BSN educated nurses take the same boards (NCLEX) to receive their registered nurse license to practice. Do some research on the BSN in 10. If you can afford to go back to school and get your BSN, you should do it because over time it will be difficult to find a nursing position in most Magnet status hospitals.
