Hi, all! The program I am entering offers a diploma, whereas the hospital accross town offers an Associates degree. They both teach the same material (I've been told) and take the same amount of time to complete. What's the difference? Will the Diploma hurt me in the long run if I decide to go back for my BSN? Since I already have a BAchelors in Science, do I need to worry about getting an associates vs a diploma? Any guidance would be appreciated.
