The school I am trying to go to for ADN (Excelsior) has two different options; either Associates of Science or Associates of Applied Science. I do want to transfer to a local university to complete my BSN and then later on I want to get a Masters in Nursing Education. Anyway, my question is which is better? What is the difference? Someone told me once that a university does not have to take all the class credits from a Applied Science degree but they have to take all the credits from a Science degree. Does anyone know how true this is?
