    ASN, Paramedic to RN. It's where my previous credits fit best -- I have a lot of general ed. credits already.

    I went with AS. I have enough credits that either AS or AAS would have worked just fine to where I would have had just the NCs, micro, and CPNE to finish with either route. However, the AS just sounds better to me, not that it actually is better. I don't know why.

    ASN. It wasn't a choice - I had a lot of gen ed credits, like Lunah.

    I see Excelsior has AAS or AS but people are putting ASN. I'm curious to know what this falls under?

    AAS is an Associate in Applied Science degree -- I guess you'd really say "AASN" for "Associate in Applied Science in Nursing." And "ASN" is "Associate in Science in Nursing." You'll see both also referred to as an ADN, which is an Associate Degree in Nursing. Clear as mud?
