I've been hearing chatter that Associte degree in nursing is not the recommended path to RN anymore and now a friend of mine has had to get their bachelors even though they were already in the field with an associates (ADN). Is this now the thing? I don't want to enter a program that is likely to be phased out (or require me need to get a bachelors after I receive my ADN). Any input is appreciated!

Im just weighing my options between LVN, ADN and BSN

thanks!

I have an AD degree and i got a job in outpatient dialysis. BUT i am doing my bachelors degree online currently and that was on my resume. Our facility is requiring us to get BSN within 5 years of hire.

Depends on your area. See what they're hiring. I have to say that you will probably eventually need a bsn. My hospital hires associates degree but they want the icu nurses to have their bachelors.
