I am getting ready to start in a nursing program for my ADN. I am a bit confused about the difference between ADN and BSN. What exactly can a person w/a BSN do that a person w/an ADN cannot do? I will most likely work on my BSN at a later date, but would like to know if I am going to have trouble getting a job with just an ADN. Thank you!!!

I have never, ever been limited in my job searches by my ADN. And yes, I know that that is true because I have been offered every job that I have interviewed for (different employment climates in different times).
You might be limited with regard to administrative positions (or so it is said). However, in my facility, I count as many ADN managers as BSN managers.
Facilities differ in their attitudes toward ADN/BSN issues. In some facilities there is a pay difference, in others not at all.
