As the other members have stated,the ADRN or BSN dilemma is a pretty common topic on the boards.
My own experience. I started at ADRN and then worked,went to school for my BSN(part time). I found at the time I could make some money,get some experience and the institution I worked at offered Tuition assistance.
I would suggest if you go this route continue to work on getting your BSN.
As one member stated who knows what the criteria may be years from now and I have talked to a number of nurses over the years who were going back to school for the BSN and found it difficult to get back into the swing of acadamia after years of practice.
So. if you go ADRN keep the momentum and continue on for the BSN you wont regret it. That Said, I never Saw much differance in Pay,skills base,or management level between the two-But I can sure as hell quote some serious Nursing theory!
