Are you weighing the differences between an ADN vs BSN degree? Great News. We researched the 5 most important considerations LPNs look at before diving into an ADN or BSN degree program.
We did the numbers and calculated the outcomes for LPNs. See our results summarized below in our ADN vs BSN Infographic.
If you were to work for 40 years with a BSN, you would make (on average) $217,040 more than you would with an ADN.*
As an LPN, by taking the next step with an ADN or BSN degree you have the potential to increase your average salary by $5,426, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS). By taking an even bigger step to earn your Nurse Practitioner (NP) degree, you have the potential to increase your salary by $28,754.
Assuming you restrict yourself to a $25,000 take home salary until you pay off your student debt, you could pay off a $50,000 ADN degree loan in 1.39 years with the average salary that an RN earns.
Assuming you restrict yourself to a $25,000 a year salary until you pay off your student debt, you could pay off a $100,000 BSN degree loan in 2.42 years with an average salary that an RN-BSN earns.
