From the Paper:

"The associate degree and baccalaureate degree of nursing education creates different levels competencies. As a provider of care, both are competent in similar behaviors, while the BSN must work to improve on the administration of nursing care. As coordinators of care, both have the same client-centered goals, although the BSN has a larger client focus and contributes to the processes of their organization while encouraging and assisting others. As a member of the profession, the ADN focuses on self-maturation, whereas the BSN enhances themselves as well as being a resource to others in the health care team so that the nursing profession may evolve."
