Bachelor's Degree

  1. i AM A NEW GRAD. WE HAD CLINICAL WITH STUDENTS IN A DIFFERENT SCHOOLS' BACHELOR'S STUDENTS. I HAVE TO SAY IN CLINICAL WE WERE AHEAD, WE WERE DOING PERFORMING TASKS THAT IN SECOND SEMESTER THATT HEY HADN'T DONE IN FOURTH SEMESTER (FOR INSTANCE HANGING IV BAGS.) IT COULD BE JUST THE SCHOOLS WE WERE IN. BUT MY QUESTION IS, IF YOU DON'T HAVE THE CLINICAL EXPERIENCE, HOW CAN YOU MANAGE EFFECTIVELY? IF I HAVE A QUESTION ABOUT A PROCEDURE I HOPE THAT I CAN ASK MY CHARGE NURSE/MANAGER. ONE INSTRUCTOR TOLD ME MY DEGREE IS A "BASTERIZED BACHELORS."
    I RESPECT SOMEONE WHO GOES FOR THERE BACHELORS BUT DO THINK CLINICAL EXPERIENCE SHOULD BE MORE OF A FOCUS.

    nurseB, please don't type in all caps as that means you are shouting. Also, please refer to the many other threads debating ADN vs. BSN on this BB. There was just a huge thread on this like last week and it kind of got nasty, so I doubt anyone wants to debate this topic with you right now.

    I have to agree w/Nikki here. Peruse the numerous threads on this and please, do quit shouting. I am NOT up for debate on who's the better nurse, either. Good luck.

    I made a mistake and was trying to reply to the already existing thread, not make anw one! as far as who is the bettter nurse, I think it depends on the individual not the degree! Also didn't mean to shout!

    Hi, I'm new to the board and have visited frequently and understand that we all are nurses and are overworked and yes, we are short staffed, however, we chose the career and if we focus continually on the negatives, this reflects our attitude with our clients eventually. I'm no "angel" myself, I get frustrated on a daily basis, co-workers, docs', interns, managers, they all get frustrated as well, let's face it, we have many responsibilities and limited time to do our duties. I've been a nurse for 20 years and to be honest, things have changed drastically. Bless you all for your hard work.:kiss

    nurseB, welcome to the boards. I think that thread that you were trying to reply to was closed by the moderators because it was just getting nasty.
