read, that they might try to pass a bill for residents of NY, they have to have a BSN in order to practice nursing. Basically if you have an ADN, you have 10 years to get a bachelors degree or you can no longer practice as a nurse. Keep that in mind incase it passes, or you plan to move.
I am in an ADN program, mainly because I could not afford to pay tuition for a BSN, I did not want any debt in student loans. But my plan is to get a BSN after I graduate and find a job. Most hospitals here will pay for you to get a BSN if you work for them for a certain amount of time, 6months to a couple years in most cases. I work as a home-health aide right now, which I will continue doing while in school, so i'll have some patient experience when i graduate, maybe it will help me with finding a job!
Where i live, there are plenty of hospitals that actually hire on there ADN students right after they graduate and take the NCLEX. You need to prove to them that you will be a great student and an even better employee.
but I dont think it will matter which one you choose, as long as your passionate about what you are doing. You can get an ADN and then go for a BSN later if you wanted. You just have to plan it out accordingly. I looked through the BSN degree requirements at the university I want to attend afterwards and prepared my transcript by taking the required classes based on what was needed for a bachelors.
