Can someone explain the difference between these programs. I didn't do the the research I should have before enrolling into a community college with an RN program. I just find out my program is an AAS and not an ADN. Will an AAS prevent me from getting a job as an RN.

Note: all nursing programs in NYC are AAS.

Nothing, they're all just different names for the same thing;

ADN - associates degree nurse

AAS - associates of applied science

ASN - associates of science in nursing

From what I understand ADN is just a generic name for any associates degree in nursing.👨‍🎓
