Does the BSNs get paid more than ADNs hold true across the board mostly? - Page 2Register Today!
- May 21, '12 by buytheshoes11The facilities and hospitals in my area prefer BSNs over ADNs when it comes to hiring, but out here an RN is an RN (as far as pay goes).
- May 21, '12 by brilloheadNothing extra in my area.
- May 21, '12 by chihuahuamanI get an extra $100 a month with my BSN.
- May 21, '12 by Sweet_Wild_RoseNo extra money with either BSN or certification. The only way you can get more money is clinical laddering. The highest rung requires either one. Ours is RN I (new hire in 90 day probation period), RN II (nurse after 90 day probation period who hasn't decided to ladder), RN III (any RN can attain), and RN IV (must have either BSN or cert). RN III gets $1/hr extra, RN IV gets $2/hr extra. Anyone can be charge nurse, doesn't have to be a BSN for $1/hr. About the only bonus we get is tuition reimbursement (with caps that don't come anywhere near covering even half the cost) and reimbursement of certification exams with proof of passing.
- May 21, '12 by Asystole RNWhat I have seen is that BSN nurses get at the most $1more an hour. My unit will pay a one time bonus of $850 for a certification.
Where the BSN really pays off is in the ability to advance your career. Those in leadership hold at least a BSN level of education and many of the cherry jobs like clinical educator, infection control and the like require a BSN.
- May 21, '12 by VICEDRNMy job doesn't but it's common to pay an extra 1/hr at other area hospitals for a bsn. It is definitely more marketable in this area to be a bsn and it definitely qualifies you more readily for leadership positions. You can not, for instance, charge, even temporarily unless you are a bsn on my unit.
- May 21, '12 by Starfish, RNI'm not sure if BSNs get more than ADNs around here, but I do see that 75% or more of the RN job openings say 'BSN preferred' or 'BSN required'.
- May 21, '12 by chevyvNothing extra where I work and yet I'm finishing my BSN. I keep asking myself why though, lol. Got my eye on a masters in Health Care Admin and I've been told having the BSN may help in this economy.
- May 21, '12 by armynurse68In Washington State, BSN nurses make an extra dollar an hour.
- May 21, '12 by KelRN215I have my BSN and it hasn't earned me one extra penny. Overall, I'd say it's far more common for BSN, ADN and Diploma RNs to be paid the same than it is for BSN to earn more.
