Well, I do appologize for upsetting you all. I really do. I now realize that I was extremely ignorant for posting my original. I wasn't trying to offend anyone. Just got carried away. And maybe you're right about how colleges are using that BSNvs.ADN to draw more people into their programs. That seems pretty logical. Hope you accept my apologies.

:) Don't you worry about it! You are learning, and have just been inducted into the group by fire, ha ha. Really, I applaud you for having the guts to admit you have learned something, and come back to the board. This tells me you have the spunk needed to be a nurse! So, again, welcome to the board. Check out the SN forum, it is a great support for students. Just don't ever come here asking for homework answers...or...well, you don't even want to know!;)

Thank you! Now I don't feel so bad! Char Ann is my mother's name, by the way. Anyway, I realize I spoke without too much thought. I really didn't take into account the fact that, uh yeah, I am just a student, and you are all professionals.

Happy Holidays to Everyone

i'm a new BSN graduate here in Canada, but i still agree with almost everyone that new grads should catch themselves before making such bold, self indulgent yet unsupported statements. New grads like abbafrazz give us all a bad name. I believe both university and college graduates have their strengths and weaknesses and I'm no expert to judge which one is better. Unfortunately some of my experiences with the notorius BSN bashing have left a bitter taste in my mouth. I hate that division which exists (at least in the hospitals that I've been at in Ontario) between the college and the university nurses and the insults and intolerance is coming from both sides in my experience. When putting things into perspective I'm a new grad and I'm way at the bottom of the food chain, regardless of whether BSN or college prepared. I'm planning on heading down to the USA due to lack of fulltime work and I'm hoping the divsion between both groups of nurses is not as blatantly apparent as it is here in ontario. I've even had some of my cosign nurses tell me oh your from the university so i expect that you don't know anything and this was in my fourth year, but by the same token I see how high and mighty some of the ignorant BSN nurses can be. :imbar

Excuse me...NEAR Done Nurse, but I believe I made my apologies about the information I had presented in my first posting. I admitted to being ignorant in what I had posted. I also stated that I was not intending to offend anyone. Oh but wait....I'm sure you probably read that.

not a fair post. Almost all of our nurses at our hospital are ADN's as we have a supreme ADN program here. Last year we received the Solucient award among many other awards. We are the 11th top hospital in the US. I guess ADN's just can't hang with the "big dog" BSN's. Don't get me wrong, I would love to get my BSN or better yet masters. I just won't get the big head to go along with it.

We all have to take the same boards exam and all need the same required skills and textbook knowledge to become a nurse. We just have different letters after our name (except in my hospital we are ALL RN'S).
