Question about ADN and BSN..

  1. I wanted to see what the difference is between the two. The ADN Program is 2 years is the BSN another 2 years on top of that? Any info would be appreciated.

    ADN is two years for the nursing school, if you have all the pre-reqs in, or intend to go to school full time.

    BSN is a four year plan, if you are going full time. Both degrees just make you eligible to take the NCLEX, a test that is required for licensure.

    The type you choose will depend on your personal circumstances, and most schools are pretty flexible for adult learners with families and jobs. Good luck!
