    Hi all.

    I In community college they basically pay you to go, and at a University, you take on soooo many student loans. .
    I don't know what you heard but no one is "paying me to go" to this ASN program I am working so hard at. I, too, have taken out a load of student loans to finance my education, community college though it be, and I'll continue to. I'd love to know how I can get in on this great opportunity...

    University today....... your boss tomorrow
    Hi,
    I've been an ADN for 18 years and have been a boss of other nurses and didn't
    like it, I don't want to be in charge of other people unless it is my own business.
    I would much rather be staff, there is more autonomy in that than a boss.

    I doubt it, Sunshine, since I have my MSNA. I've just never noticed any difference in the quality of care patients receive from either ADN or BSN nurses.

    I hate to tell you Sunshine, that I have worked with many BSN's and they have difficulty on the floor when they finish university as you call it. They can't hit the floor runnning because they don't know how.:trout:

    You need to get reimbersed by your employer if your working. I paid my tuition through LPN school and an ADN program through a communitycollege.If your not working you might try getting a grant through the state.

    [FONT=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]All entry-level nurses should have equal status and standing in the eyes of the patient, the public, and the hospital. The only way to achieve that is to have one educational level for entry into the practice of nursing. No other profession has created a two-tiered system, and there lies the conflict. I believe that the entry level should be at the BSN level.

In community college they basically pay you to go, and at a University, you take on soooo many student loans. The upper division classes are much more difficult at a University and I truly feel it's unfair to group the two (BSN, and community) together. It's completley different. I have heard that there are some states that requrire a BSN if that's true, I think it's great.
    Bye for now.
    On the floor, we're all the same, we all do the same job. I'm more concerned with personal work ethic/quality of care provided. How about banding together to make nursing a stronger profession in general. Strength in numbers. In a pinch, I could care less if the person who has my back is a BSN or ADN. Now, mention offering raises based on quality of care provided, and you've got my attention. Otherwise, this is beating a dead horse.

    Hello, I am new here and I have the same question as many others, it seems. I am on a waitlist for a university for the BSN program, and from what I have heard from co-workers, there is no waitlist at DTCC this year and was wondering if I should try to get my application in there. I have only tried to get into the University so far. I have most of the prereqs for the cc, but I would have to take their admission test. What are the chances that I might get into a cc sooner than a university?
