Degree choices

Nursing Students Pre-Nursing


My daughter is working on her nursing degree and we are wondering which one is better. There aren't alot of choices of schooling where we are without driving a distance. If someone could recommend the best option I would appreciate it. One school is offering an Assoicates in Nursing. Another school is offering an Assoicates of Science and the last one is offering an associates of applied science. Which one is better for furthering her education? She has talked to a few people at the schools here but the answers aren't clear. And to be honest I don't want to see her go to a college because they "want" her there and don't care what happens durning the learning process. In everyone who reads this what is your opinion as to which assoicates is better?

Honestly, nursing is. It's a field that's high in demand but very hard to get into, but the harder something is, the better the reward. Your daughter will have better job security than most and depending on how far she'd wants to take her education with nursing she will make at least $20+/hr. but the only stipulation is that her heart has to be in it to get it. I've completed all My pre reqs for nursing and watched people who thought it was going to be a walk in the park or in it for just the money sooner or later failed. Sooner, very sooner, rather than later. Just make sure your daughter wants this or else you it she will waste money and time.

Specializes in Acute Care, Rehab, Palliative.

If she is planning on being a nurse then the Associates in Nursing is the one she wants to take. The other two degrees will not make her a nurse and aren't necessary.

Some schools offer an Associate Degree in Nursing (ADN), an Associate of Science in Nursing (ASN), or an Associate of Applied Science in Nursing (AASN). It doesn't matter which one of these you get because at the end of the program you're allowed to take the boards (NCLEX) and become and RN. After that you're able to start working as an RN and then to further your education you can enroll in a RN-BSN program to get your Bachelors degree from a university.

If the programs that are being offered are just called Associate of Science or Associate of applied Science without the word "Nursing" on it, then it definitely has nothing to with Nursing and won't get you anywhere at the end of it.
