The intersection of the history of associate degree nursing and “BSN in 10”: Three visible paths

Abstract

Associate degree nursing (ADN) education developed from Mildred Montag's research and differentiated practice vision in 1952. From the first set of graduates, Montag's differentiated practice vision did not take hold. Lack of differentiation of nurses' role and functions in practice based on education preparation continues today. The “BSN in 10” legislative proposals raise questions about the role of the ADN nurse in practice. This article is an invitation for further historical study and dialogue.
