I just recently started new job in a LTC facility and over the past week have gotten to know some of my new co-workers. there is one in particular who feels it is her duty to let me know that her school was better than mine, her anticipated RN bridge program is better than mine and she just is generally better. I am still struggling with why it is so important that we constantly compare all the area surrounding schools
. I think that each school has its advantages and disadvantages and they are all just different. You get out of it what you put into it. I am so tired of having to listen to "oh, you over paid" and "oh, i would never go to that school" and on and on. In the end we ALL have to take the SAME NCLEX. I refuse to get into a debate with whether or not her school is better so I finally ended up just saying to her today "Ok, you win. Your school is better. You can have it." There are VN program on every corner seems like, can't we just get over who's better and just support and encourage one another?
