i personally don't care which approach a person chooses to get their rn license as long as they are dang good when they hit the patient population with their expertise.
what works out best for one person may not work out best for another. finances play a huge part in the route a person takes to obtain an education, certification, or license...regardless of what career choice they choose. different strokes for different folks makes the world what it is, always has been and always will be.
people who think their employer owes them something just because the person thinks their degree is better than someone else's degree are the ones who create the hiarchy of chaos among the people they must work with and get along with. you paid $40,000.00 to $100,000.00 for an education, and gosh darn it...you get angry if you aren't getting that money back threefold!
years ago...men were running top corporate businesses on less than a primary grade education, and their lack of education never prevented them from becoming successful at what they did -- making boo-koo money to boot, and they never stood in any unemployment lines because they were overeducated
so........go figure! i could write a book on this subject alone, but i'll spare you all my ability to go on and on and on and on....:zzzzz
today...everybody thinks that in order to get ahead in their life they have to be degreed and certificated to the max! well...one could be having a much better time in their life enjoying their families, babies, husbands, parents, friends, etc....if they hadn't gone into thousands and thousands of educational debt thinking their employer would repay them threefold for having done so. so "peder and pansy" are too busy trying to pay off those mega student loans while missing out on the life they had hoped to build and enjoy together. instead of being able to enjoy their life, they get to live a 'hit and miss' sort of a life within their 24/7 schedules where the kids and pets rarely have enough relaxation time with them. so.......my cure for this mess?
stop the insanity folks, and get back to living life for yourselves cause your boss sho' aint going to pay you what you are worth, and make up for what you are missing with those darlin' rugrats of yours, and your lonesome spouse who is home while you are at work so when you get home, you peck each other on the cheek, and then the other spouse goes to work while the one who just got off work can..........catch my drift here!
