ADN vs BSN | Which Is Right For You? In Today’s video we look at just that! We will break down the differences and similarities between the Associates Degree in Nursing (ADN) and Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN). I’ll share some of the limitations and benefits of going the ADN route, offer my personal recommendation for your end goal, and offer my insight on some common myth’s about ADN nursing programs. Remember, both the ADN and BSN nursing programs provide you the opportunity to sit for the NCLEX which makes you a registered nurse, so you really can’t lose either way!
