Yes I would agree with the above poster and go with the ADN.
The problem with accelerated programs is similar to doing your pre-reqs during the Summer Session...You are really thrown so much information in such a short period of time that it is hard to really have it all sink in. And then there is the cost...ouch.
You get the same pay as a BSN as you would with ADN, and so many options in the field of Nursing are still open to you. You may even decide to never bother with ADN to BSN if you like working in any of these various areas. Myself..I don't plan on ever touching management at all, but I would like to teach, so the BSN appeals to me.
If you couldn't care less though, and are happy with a job as an RN...then it doesn't make a difference one bit.
You will find what really stands out is the individual. There are some crappy BSN nurses out there and there are some crappy ADN nurses out there...in the end it really comes down to the Nurse and how they have applied themselves both during their school years and beyond.
And if you do want to do the ADN to BSN thing, it will be much easier than the original nursing program
. And from what I hear, going one step further from that point to your Master's is cake in comparison to the Nursing Program.
It all depends on what will work best for you. Heck, considering how hard it is to get into a program just be happy with whatever you can get
