I want a degree not associated with cleaning people's behinds or bedpans!! When you tell people you are a nurse you can see their dissappointment (I am referring to educated and successful women). When I talk to women in business or finance, they have no interest at all in knowing about nursing. They just feel sorry for you and see you as a caretaker. There is no prestige at all in nursing be it as an RN or BSN.
