    Bachelorette?

    I think one takes 2-3 years and one takes 4-5 years. Can you be more specific as to what you're asking?

    I am in an ADN program. I actually had the same struggle: BSN vs. ADN. I talked with my physician about it and he told me this. If you want to work in administration, or move up the "nursing food chain" so to speak, you should go for the BSN. If you want to be a staff nurse, you could stick with the ADN. Of course, it is entirely possible to still move up with an ADN, with experience and and a dependable work history, etc.

    Bachelors because back in the educational "dark ages pre feminism" only bachelors could study at university....

    Or, some people choose to go the ADN route so they can actually work as an RN while they're in school, as well as get their employer to pay tuition reimbursement for their BSN program.

    So it's a feminist thing? "Bachelorette" is better?

    Lots of threads about this subject. Do a search.

    The degree path one chooses tends to boil down to time, financial resources, and career goals.

    Welcome to allnurses, by the way!

    Well it hasn't gotten nasty...... yet! :chuckle

    I try to bear with the newbies as much as possible - I guess I'm naive assuming that perhaps they just don't know better than to ask such a loaded question?

    I have been a ADN nurse for 10 yrs. now and am planning on going back for my BSN only because my employer will pay for it otherwise I am very content.
