I started my nursing career journey as a diploma graduate, which is quite similar to the ADN = Associate’s Degree Nurse. Both are approximately two years (or less) of didactic learning where you acquire the number of required clinical hours to sit for the NCLEX-RN exam. Upon completion of the ADN program, you will have your Associate’s in Science in Nursing. Whereas the diploma program is just that, you graduate with a diploma (this is usually a hospital-based nursing program). Yours truly started in an 18-month accelerated diploma program many moons ago.
A great question from the tribe. I answer this question, not only for all ADN students, but my piece of advice is applicable to ALL nursing students. Watch the video below:
