- Dec 31, '12 by newnurse1986Quote from alexandra_irisIt's about a 0.25 difference where I live in ALI'm still in high school and i'm hearing so many mixed reviews on which I should get. I do know that with BSN you can make more money..... but how much more? I'm looking for some opinions! ASN or BSN?!
- Jan 7 by Frank91898I live in California and pretty much to me the difference is the degree( in the beggining).
ASN will allow you to take the NCLEX to become a RN
BSN will allow that too but BSN is a higher degree and will open doors in higher ranks of nursing tree.
Also if you do ASN and work in a hospital, some offer to help pay for your education to get your BSN ofcourse with the signing of a contract.
- Jan 10 by akaniniI always believe that once you have an Associates, it's a little easier to get the BSN. There are so many programs now. However, if you have the option to go straight for the BSN, I would grab it! It opens up more doors. I'm noticing now where I live (NYC) most ads are saying "BSN REQUIRED" instead of "PREFERRED".
