i graduated from a diploma school, and wouldn't have it any other way.
my training was truly superior.
upon starting a new job as an rn, i was able to hit the ground running with relatively few fall-outs.
with that said, if i were starting school today, i would definitely go directly for the bsn.
believe me, you will be much more marketable upon graduating.
there's a trend throughout the country, that is desiring bsn grads.
and this trend will not reverse.
go for it, and do not look back.
you'll be very happy you did.
best of everything.
