    The difference between ADNs and BSNs

    Really? so those classes are not important and crucial? Sorry, but in reality, many and many more magnet hospitals are Not seen it as "Thats it". And that is why they only hire BSN nurses. I don't think Hospitals are keen on waiting for the state bills to pass, even though the fact there are state bills on BSN being the minimal requirement for entry level into nursing is by itself VERY important.

    The difference between ADNs and BSNs

    One of the best posts i have seen in this discussion. I could have not said it any better.

    The difference between ADNs and BSNs

    Great post. There's a big difference between ADN and BSN (and i listed why also in my previous posts). In my opinion, a BSN should be the minimal requirement for entering the nursing field. I also respect everyone opinion as well.

    The difference between ADNs and BSNs

    Which ADN program is that (that included these classes, courses dedicated to leadership and courses dedicated to evidence based practice research) ? because i haven't seen one yet that does.

    The difference between ADNs and BSNs

    Your ADN program had a classes dedicated to research on evidence based practice? classes dedicated to leadership? etc.. i have looked at many ADN curriculum to check, and none had those classes mentioned.

    I did write "respectfully" (that i respect her opinion, even though i have completely different opinion on the topic) before i started my post.

    The difference between ADNs and BSNs

    Respectfully, BSN degree is a 4 year program, where an ADN is two year program, so i disagree that those two years of additional classes are not helpful. Classes such as research evidence based practice, management, leadership, and obviously more in depth core nursing courses, etc.. should be included in any nursing curriculum because it involves the daily job role of a nurse, and that is why there is a trend to have a BSN as the minimum requirement for the entry level in nursing.

    Chances of getting into grad school...

    I would say it makes no difference. I think it would be just easier to go straight for your BSN, then it would be going for your ADN and then BSN.

    I think BSN being the minimum requirement for the entry level for nursing seems to be what these trends (more hospitals hiring only BSN nurses) are indicating.

    ADN

    You should get your BSN. Do not settle for ADN. Many hospitals (and increasing) are not hiring low level degrees such as the ADN or Diploma certificate. They only hire BSN nurses. These are usually magnet and/or teaching hospitals. When you do go for your BSN, don't listen to certain people when they say find any cheap RN-BSN program and go for it. Pick a really good reputable RN-BSN program (regardless of price, a really good quality education is more important then price, were taking care of patients after all). Nursing is not suppose to be a quick way to have a career by having a low level degree (and having the shortest amount of time to be in school, and the cheapest) and saying that's it, i have career now. Nursing is Not like that, and should not be.

    ADN vs. BSN

    I agree that the higher the degree, the higher the chances of getting hired, and the more opportunities that will be available.

    ADN vs. BSN

    I am RN (BSN). Working on my MSN (2 more semesters for my MSN). Please be a bit more civil and professional.

    Why get an MSN?

    The higher the degree, the better. MSN is great because you can specialize (CRNA, NP, etc.), and you would have a lot more opportunities.

    ADN vs. BSN

    There are always exceptions. However, like i said many times, the trends are changing, and many hospitals/institutions are only hiring BSN degrees for the reason i mentioned, especially management type of jobs. People should ask themselves why these institutions are requiring higher degrees (for example, some hospitals hire only BSN nurses).

    ADN vs. BSN

    After all the time i spend posting why a BSN degree is a better degree (regardless when i became a member) and explaining the reasons behind it, i don't know why you would state that comment. If you disagree with me, you can simply disagree. You don't have to call anyone "trolling" just because they have different opinion then you. So when some hospitals tell you that they are hiring only BSN degree nurses, they are trolling also??? Let's be realistic, and realize that higher degrees are preferred these days.

    Other than BSN

    For the NP programs that I know, a BSN degree is required to apply to the NP programs.
