Can somebody help me Please? I have a question that the website doesn't explain to well. Is there a difference in the BSN ATI and the ADN ATI ?? All the website says is the following,

" Although the same methodology and analytical processes were used to create BSN and ADN versions of the ATI Pulse model, separate predictive algorithms exist for students enrolled in ADN vs. BSN programs. The different predictive algorithms emphasize or deemphasize certain predictors of later NCLEX-RN success as a function of how they perform analytically within these two different student populations. Despite ATI Pulse’s program-specific weighting of predictors, comparable predictive accuracy is achieved for both ADN and BSN program types.".

Now to me what I read is in my own word is YES they are different? Thoughts please
