i've read yet another thread about the adn degree being "just a 2 year degree." i already have an as degree (with honors) and a ba degree. i know very well what the traditional "2 year" & "4 year" degrees are like...
i will finish my adn degree in may '07 so i've been at this (adn) now for a few years and there simply is no way to compare an as with an adn so i suggest we correct this gross lack of understanding.
when someone says "that's a 2 year degree" tell them it is not.
#1 the adn degree is not a "2 year degree" (not in california at least).
#2 it's just earned at a place that mostly handles 2 year degrees but an adn is more like a 3+ years degree full time.
#3 with a previous ba, it will have taken me 3 years full time to earn my adn (and no i did not retake any classes or take a class that was not required).
#4 you'd better hope there's more to an adn degree than what's involved for a typical as.
to change things we need to correct misinformation so if someone thinks an adn degree is like a typical as degree, please do some effective "pt teaching!"
