The paper discusses how after World War II, the Associates Degree in Nursing [ADN] was created to help alleviate the nursing shortage and was supposed to be a temporary fix to what came to be an ongoing problem. The paper explains that the ADN was never meant to replace the professional level of nursing education the BSN held and they were supposed to have the role of "technical" nurse. The paper further explains that the technical nurse would be an assistant to the BSN and would work under the constant supervision of the professional nurse with the more advanced degree. The paper then relates that the ADN became so popular that it has continued to be a pathway to an attractive career that is affordable and less time consuming.
