"Just an LPN"....does anyone else get discouraged? - Page 16Register Today!
- Feb 10, '05 by BETSRN[QUOTE=Marie_LPN]I think schooling does promote some of the i'm-better-than-you attitude. A local BSN program in this area employs an instructor whom i overheard saying "Remmber, YOU will be the nurse, do not focus on aide work.">>
This statement right here says it all...........This ""I am better because I have a BSN" stuff starts with the instructors: some of whom have not been at the bedsie in years, or ever!! I once had a professor (in a Masters program) tell an entire bunch of students (many of whome were BSN students) that it didn't matter whether they could put in a foley and she never did it until she worked in ICU. I think that's what turned me off right then and there. It's that type of attitude that sets the stage.
- Feb 10, '05 by LPN1974Yes, I agree there is alot of petty snipping back and forth on this thread.
This thread started out by an LPN who was discouraged. And it's ending up totally off subject.
I say if you want to beat up on other nurses, go get another board, and don't allow any nurses in who do not fit in with your grade. As one poster stated, "No LPNs allowed."
Then you can do all of it you want to, but while on this board, which everyone reads, keep the griping and b******g about other nurses and/or other nursing positions off of it.
Why can we not learn to get along???
If it's this bad on this board, I'd hate to work in a unit with some of these posters.
