Typically how long does it take for ADN to be a BSN at a four year institution?
Is it possible for a RN to work while going to school full time to get a BSN?

YES, IT IS POSSIBLE!!!!! I AM WORKING FULL-TIME AND GETTING MY BSN ON-LINE THROUGH A UNIVERSITY. THE ONLY DRAWBACK IS HAVING TO DO LOTS OF EXTRA CLINICAL HOURS (OR PRACTICUM) AS THEY CALL IT. SOME WEEKS, SLEEP IS NOT AN OPTION.

Most RN to BSN programs are designed with the working nurse in mind. Obviously they don't want to take nurses out of the workforce, and most working nurses can't afford to quit.
The program I'm in is going to take me two years. I had some co-req courses like Stats, Chemistry, and some electives. Other programs are 1.5 years.
I work 3 12-hour shifts a week while I'm doing this. Go for it!
if i were going that route, i'd look to do it online :)
I am currently enrolled to get my BSN online. I also start a new job this week. I am going to be doing double weekends. This will free up my week for school. The advantage for me using online is I can do it at my convience and around my work schedule. I also do not have to attend clincals, because as a working nurse I get credit for my experience.

Exceptionally cool handle!
Arizona State University has a bridge program for ADN nurses to get their BSN in one year. I am definitely planning on going that route when the day comes.
I'm in a hospital-based program; if you work at the hospital after passing the NCLEX, they will pay for you to get your BSN, if you're so inclined. Good luck.

I am starting an accelerated RN to BSN program on Aug 30th. It is one night a week from 6p-10p for 18months. I have to work full time while in school and full time for 3 years after completing my BSN since my employer is paying for it. Other nurses have done this so I guess I can too. Online is not for me as I am not knowledgeble enough about computers and easily frustrated by them. Good luck to you.
What are the significant differences in professional responsibilities between the BSN and ADN? I'm going into nursing, via the ADN route, as a 2nd career. I have an M.S. in chemistry with 25 years as a chemical engineer.
The program I'm taking lets me take A&P, microbiology, etc., in parallel with the clinical work. I was told this was unusual since they generally require these prior to applying to the nursing program, but, apparently my academics were good enough to qualify.
Will there be a difference in treatment by employers because of my ADN/MS vs a BSN? And what about my age (I'll be 52 when I graduate).
