I really cannot stop going back and forth...
Should I do the faster and much
less appreciated ADN program, or should I go for the longer, and much more "honored" BSN program?
At first I was sure
that I was going for the ADN, without a doubt...and then
once I took a lot of my pre-reqs, and started talking to all of my classmates...I had a total change of heart...after that I knew I wanted to do the BSN....(and cue the 100% absolute stereotypical bull-crap that goes through my head) because everyone will look down on me and think that I'm a total slacker that doesn't know the first thing about nursing and that just wanted to get through school as fast as I could, without getting the proper training...
I get the impression that everyone (from the people I've talked to, and millions of things I've read online) feels that an Associate's Degree isn't going to even be given a glimpse
of respect, like I will be doing it all for nothing...
Does anyone else feel this way? Did anyone have to choose between these two, and what happened? What did any of you do, or would
you do in this situation?
And I want to add...that these are not my personal feelings about the Associate's Degree...it's just the impression that I'm getting...and I definitely don't want to waste my time if no one is going to take me seriously.
Thank you to everyone in advance for helping in any way that you can...any
kind of insight, ideas, advice, or opinions would mean the world to me!!!!!!!
