Meh, I get where you're coming from but don't let it get to you. I just graduated with my ADN and passed NCLEX. I plan on going for my BSN as soon as possible. I'm currently a CNA and I wouldn't be able to discern between an ADN or BSN on the floor unless I asked them personally.
Our program (American River College) here in Sacramento, has an excellent reputation. Some of the best, most bad *** nurses were ARC grads, I found out.
I think it's a personal decision whichever way you go about becoming a nurse. If someone has a problem with that, that's on them. You're still really young, don't worry, you've got plenty of time. It's never too late, IMO. It's your life, don't let other people's attitudes get to you. You know what you need to do so go do it! Good luck!
