- Oct 7, '03 by nicudaynurseI'm sure you figured out that this is a sensitive subject brendaaron2000, but I will answer your question.
As far as clinical bedside opportunities there is no difference for ADN or BSN prepared nurses. For the most part ADN and BSN nurses are paid the same. If you want to further your education such as a nurse practitioner a BSN is required. Most management, research, coordinator and school nurse postitions in my area require a BSN. Basically having a BSN will allow you more opportunities away from the bedside.
Hope that helps!!
