    On the contrary, someone with my ability should not practice science in a lab.

    I think my analytical mind can separate what I've experienced

    Why would someone who has no intention of being a nurse, and seems to have disdain for the educational requirements to be a nurse, continue to post on a nursing site?

    Not that non-nurses aren't welcome. But I just don't get it. Why spend time on a site related to a job you don't want to do, telling those who do that job how you think their education is inferior/lacking?

    I can think of better things to do with my time. No flames meant here; like I said, I just don't get it.

    Peeps is a good guy, folks. He is. Just disillusioned and in all fairness, Peep's school's philosophy is a little out there....

    Yes, it is. But taking a bad experience at ONE school and extrapolating it to the discipline of nursing as a whole is hardly the most stellar example of the application of scientific method.

    And regardless, the persistent attitude of superiority and, as fab4fan points out, disdain for the field in which the vast majority of this board's posters choose to work is neither respectful, tactful nor inclined to garner him much support or sympathy. I would think this would be self-evident to one so brilliant.

    Not again! What *I* responded to was I had no idea there is a GROWING CONTROVERSY. NURSE is to be used only by those licensed as a NURSE. I have absolute respect for the people who have saved my critters from harm many many times.

    Please let's not get into the my school taught me this and yours taught you that.......And Peeps....I don't know how to respond....

    Aren't we all just nurses then,I hate to think what you call your CNA's,like I said don't get so hung up about it.My point was is to know how to use your it(Title), not just having it.We all talk about getting respect,respect from whom?aslong you know you yourself you are a good Nurse,you earn it.Anyway what was this tread,What do you think Vet Tech calling themself Nurses?I don't think the answer is Overeacted Attitude form any one of us.Nowonder we get No respect.Iam new here I see this have been discussed earlier Treads so "Oh well round and round we go ....... "

    Now THERE is a post that makes sense to an average joe IQ-wise!(me). The superiority thing w/this person is getting quite old.

    Where the heck do you get that I have a "superiority thing"?

    I posted the actual course descriptions. I'm not making anything up out of context. I'm not stereotyping either.

    I'm simply pointing out an obvious foundation in the basic curicculum and am trying to discuss it. I really wanted to explore why it's called a BSN. The science in BSN as it is interpreted is psychology, and sociology mixed into a sort of psychosocial framework............right?

    I believe this is the basis of the term "holistic".

    Stargazer,

    Are you sure of what you are saying? I don't see anything I said quoted so I will assume you are just hurling insults because you can't think of any other way of expressing grief of the loss of your idealistic innocence.

    I've been posting at Allnurses for 3 years. Believe it or not, some people here actualy like me..........seriously. I don't expect everyone to embrace my opinnions, in fact, I welcome the opposing argument because that is what a discussion board is for.
    My arguments lately have just happend to oppose some cherished relics of nursing's past impinging on the advancement of the profession. Speaking against tradition will always have more detractors than those willing participants in intelligent conversation.
    The guillotine that will eventualy expatriate me is being made ready by those that are so terrified of change that they are unwilling to admit that they might just not know everything.

    I have posted much more than just disdain for current curicculum in the 3 years I have been on the board. More of what I've posted has been pro-nursing and positive in nature its just that sometimes I'm eccentric in my opinnions to nursing, but I do draw on some experiences, so it's not like I just pulled these ideas out of my butt you know.

    BTW,
    has anyone thought in all these discussions about the vet tech thing, to present a vet tech's curicculum so it can be contrasted?

    Peeps.. what purpose would the course descriptions in a Vet Tech program serve?
  12. by   Peeps Mcarthur
    To compare it to nursing.

    That's what the thread is about isn't it?
  13. by   SmilingBluEyes
    NO it's not about COMPARING nursing to vet-teching to me. But if you read my posts, you know where I stand so why restate things and bore everyone? Good news is, I am moving on.....this conversation has taken a turn that serves me no purpose. Enjoy, all.
