I was reading the posts about the compositions required for RN- BSN and it got me wondering a bit....
I have an ADN (and a BS in psychology). I will only earn my BSN if forced because I am just plain schooled-out.
Many posts speak to the RN-BSN being a lot of writing, APA formatting and what-not. Is this not a standard part of all ADN programs? In my program EVERYTHING had to be APA style, even our care plans
. I had one quarter (thank goodness not the entire program)where a 15-25 page paper was required WEEKLY.
Was my program really that much different than other ADN programs?
FWIW- I am one of those who thinks that a BSN would be of little educational benefit to me. I feel like I wrote my guts out in my ADN program. EBP? Covered it. Research? Designed, ran and wrote up my own research project as part of my psych degree. That's not the point of this post, though. Truly just curious as to whether my ADN program was on the cutting-edge as far as requiring compositions, etc.
