SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads) One of my wife's friends relocated to KC after Katrina and started an ADN program at a local community college while I was enrolled in my accelerated BSN. I spoke with her frequently and I do think her education was better in terms of clinical experience, but I knew more when it came to rationale. I cannot say if this was from the BSN or from my basic science background from first bachelor's degree [in biology]. But yes, her clinical experience was much better.
