I currently have a BBA and have determined business is not the ideal field where I want to have a career. I've been taking the usual prerequisite courses to apply to nursing and am now at a point where I need to decide if I want to pursue an ADN or BSN degree. Advantage for ADN to me is lower cost (through a community college) and less time to complete it (about 6 months less). Advantage for a BSN is the ability to further my education without having to get an ADN and then a BSN down the road and the distinction of a University degree instead of a community college (I have also looked at an accelerated BSN, but no schools anywhere near where we would be going actually have one). The hospitals in my area (New Mexico) seem to accept both, but my boyfriend is applying to med school and I would be moving with him if he goes out of state. --I am curious if anyone knows if employers across the US generally have a preference for ADN or BSN or if there is not a big distinction between the two because of the shared requirement, after both degrees, to pass the NCLEX.
