Which is better? I've heard ADN's get more clinical experience as BSN's learn more about management and whatnot.
I'm stuck on if I should go to the university for my BSN or become an LPN then bridge. (There are no straight ADN programs in my area.)
I'm 18 with a 5 month old son.. I'm not sure which one would be better. I want to get my RN fast since I have a child, but Im afraid if I get my ADN they will eventually be phased out. Once I'm done with school..I don't want to go back.

Have you tried a search? There are literally 100s of pages debating the pros and cons of each.
In short, there is no easy answer. Think about where you would like to work and inquire if they hire ADNs or prefer BSNs.
As far as the clinical hours, they vary by individual program, there is no generalization that ADN or BSN gets more clinical hours. Acquire about the number of hours at each individual program you apply to or consider.
