I am being advised that when I graduate I can walk right into a RN position. Why am I seeing that I may have to hound or beg :bow: the HR for a position? I feel that the more you jump, hoot and... Read More

    Has anybody else noticed that when the error of someone's thinking is pointed out to them sometimes they tend to go off in a whole new direction rather than recognize and acknowledge that they were wrong?

    Yep, sad sad thread.

    Rarely does one single thread contain so many inaccuracies, flailing so wildly in so many directions. It's a sight to behold. If allnurses had a razzy thread award, this would be it.

    I do feel a sense of sadness for the OP, at what her life is probably going to be like as a new grad RN (if she does not listen). I can see the thread now, "They fired me for no reason!!!"

    Hmmm... you seem to have gotten many of your facts wrong. A 2- yr RN has the same exact scope of practice as a 4-yr RN, in the end they both take the same test. Where did you come up with this? Who knows what else you may be mistaken about! Do you really believe that after your 4- yr degree you will have experienced more than a nurse with years of experience? Good luck at your new job...I'm sure you can teach those dumb ol' nurses a thing or two!

    So, don't tell me that a 2 yr RN will not have to step aside ( it will be done becuase 4 yr students are trained in leadership skills)
    Yes, but if you do not understand the objectives of your leadership course you really are not benefiting from this extra piece of education. I am guessing that you have not taken your Leadership course yet or got a poor grade because your additive is not one of a leader at all. Guess your not benefiting from all that extra education after all.

    My thoughts exactly. Actually, I am dumbfounded.
    Takes quite a lot to render me absolutely positively speechless, but this thread has done just that... my:

    How many medical errors have you made in you nursing profession? Tell us all that.

    How many time have you called off from work sick and it was a lie, and knowing you were creating a hardship on your fellow nurses, and there were people who needed you.

    How many time have you lied on a nurse report?

    Did you score 100% in your medication calculations? I do all the time. Do you?

    No, of course you don't, and that leads to nurses making med errors, FACT!!!

    Your first point and second point is a character issue, not a ADN vs BSN issue.

    Your third point is well pointless, every ADN progam I know about requires 100% on the dosage calculations test. I am not a nurse so they can correct me, but from what I have been told, most dosage errors came from mis-reading the order or being distracted in some form, NOT from the nurse not knowing how to do a calculation correctly on the math aspect.

    I could go further go on and tell you what your BSN has obviously FAILED to teach you, but I will leave it at that. One last note, if you find yourself having a problem finding a job, I don't think it has anything to do with the economy or the degree you recieved.

    to lexnursingstudent,
    your posts are amazing. On behalf of nurses everywhere (both ADN and BSN), I would ask you to do a favor to all of us. Print off this thread and re-read it after you've been working for 2-3 years. We all know how you feel now, but I'd be very interested to hear what you think of your opinion after you get some real experience.

    Wow! The attitude in this thread is sadly shocking.

    IMO, with an attitude like this, it will be very hard to find or keep a job. In nursing, the learning never stops, it doesn't matter how many years of experience you have or what degree you hold. There will be many times that you will learn from other's that have less experience than you.

    Oh. My. God.


    Tell me one thing that I can expect not to know when I start my first day as a new graduate nurse?
    The above quote sums it up for me. The fact that you, LexSTUDENT, cannot see the utter ignorance of this sentence is all that need be said.

    I can see I wasted my breath earlier. You will not listen because you already know it all. Congrats. And I dearly hope no one I care about comes into your assignment.

    There will be alot you will not know, trust me. And you will find a lot of two year degree nurses that will know alot more than you; be thankful that they are there, because it may be one of these two year degree people that may save your **** one day.

    Good luck and come back to this thread after you've worked about a year or two. I'm sure you'll be eating some humble pie, that is, if you can swim.

    Wait, one more thought: maybe this is a troll, a joke thread? Someone who gets some weird kind of kick out of riling up actual nurses...maybe a nursing student who got kicked out of the program (and blames everyone else because it was "for no good reason")?

    I'm having a hard time believing this is someone who is approaching graduation. I think my PhD former nursing instructors would agree
