    It's about a 0.25 difference where I live in AL

    I 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.

    I 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".
