How is Nursing Program Different from College Program?

  1. Ok new here obviously, gathering info on how to start this nursing journey...

    found out (from this board) that I can go through a hospital that has a nursing program or go the two year college route.

    I'm looking to go the ADN route and then later if needed/wanted/desired go the BSN route.

    My question is/are:

    1) What is the difference between the two?

    2) How do I find out if a hospital offers such a thing, I just looked online at the three major hospitals in Atlanta and I don't see anything, I guess I should call and ask HR?

    3) I was also reading about level 1-4 clinicals once you start working - can someone elaborate what that is and how beneficial it is to your career? I'm assuming it's a good thing to have to advance yourself.

    Thanks! I love this board!

    #1nursing programs are different from regular college program because you have to apply for it with in the health occupations or whatever section of the college. You can't just register/schedule the classes like you can english classes etc.
    #2 Not sure but calling HR or nursing education at that hospital should get you the info you need.
