    In my ADN program, I learned how to be a nurse. In my BSN program, I wrote papers. The benefit of the BSN for me has been that now I get an interview for pretty much every job I apply for, whereas when I had only my ADN, no one would even call. Didn't matter that I had a 4.0. So while the BSN hasn't made much difference in the way I practice, it has opened a lot of doors for me. For that reason, I'm very glad I got it.

    Just because this issue isn't unique to nursing, does that mean there isn't a problem? Other people do it too. So what? It's still an issue.

    That's a very big generalization to make especially since at lots of universities the nursing schools are far more competitive than the generic BS in biology. It is lame that many pre meds use this philosophy and automatically assume all nursing students are far dumber and wouldn't be able to maintain high gpas.

    Also pre meds aren't doing any dosage calculations that's why you don't hear of them... (all it is is just general courses in varying sciences, a pre med concentration isn't even a major and is literally useless if you don't get to med school)
    Well... The Commuter has a point because take a look around on here and how many "I failed the NCLEX five times!!" posts do you see? Not every one of those students are from a for profit school, either. I precept students from a major university with an esteemed nursing program often and just to be frank, a lot of these students are not the sharpest crayon in the box. It boggles my mind.

    I imagine that every profession has something similar.
    You're not a real doctor if you're a dermatologist. You're not a real attorney if you work in tax law.
    You're not a real model if you don't do runway. You're not a real pharmacist if you work at WalMart.
    Some people just have to feel superior, and make up reasons that satisfy that need.
    I place enough pressure on myself without letting some idiot get in my head.
    I wish I could like this 1000 times!
