I know that the RN-Mobility program is only an Associates Degree.. and the RN-BSN is a bachelors degree.. but what is the difference in pay and if it is more difficult to get a job having a RN-Mobility degree??

...I've never heard of "RN-Mobility". Where did you hear this term, and what exactly are you referring to by it?

"RN-BSN" usually refers to programs designed for RNs with diplomas or associates degrees to earn their bachelors.

My school has an RN 'mobility' course called Career Mobility and I'm almost sure it's the same thing. It's an accelerated course for LPN's to get their ADN.

Ah, so the OP needs to do more research besides just looking at names to find out what various programs are and actually offer. Got it.

The school I go to has an RN-Mobility program! It's an associates degree, but I just wanted to know the true difference in going the complete 4 years or just doing these 2!

There are literally fifty bazillion threads on Allnurses debating the difference between the ADN and BSN routes to becoming an RN. Use the search function to find and go read a few of them.
