I was an LPN and then subsequently got my BSN. Where I live LPN’s have been fazed out in hospitals. To be honest, I think the difference between a 2 year ADN and 4 year BSN program is big and a BSN should be a must. Just because of what I’ve seen in the workforce and what jobs are available. I currently am a School Nurse that requires a BSN, however many of my colleagues have their MSN and APRN. I’m not saying that one degree is better than the other but you have more knowledge, and employers expect that knowledge base.
