1. I have been asked to work up an analysis of the relative costs of starting a ADN vs a BSN program at a small rural state college. The administration sees the ADN as a cheaper alternative and believes that a BSN can be easily "added on" as the program grows.

    From my perspective, the biggest expense is finding qualified faculty and paying them, but I am not convinced that ADN faculty would come cheaper than BSN faculty, nor that fewer would be required.

    In addition, with a 4 year program, the school has 4 years of tuition per student to put into the program (as well as other requirements), rather than two.

    Any advice or comments gratefully welcomed!!!
