    I'm an ADN nurse, and I could care less about whether the student is ADN/BSN. Trust me, nurses just don't care about these things. But, I can see a lot of nurses caring about overhearing a student asking for an 'easy' pt.

    For all you know, your assigned nurse could have spoken with this other nurse about it, and led her to believe that you just weren't interested in working.

    This isn't an example of nurses eating their young! Trust me.....

    nope.. I agree.. you werent "eaten" on this one.. you still have enough blood in your body to type this . I have seen abuse first hand, this aint it. And frankly I am surprised that your CI was cool about it. Family plans matter not while you are in nursing school- learning, taking"difficult" pts to create that learning- is what does matter. primaries like students who are willing to go the mile and several steps beyond
    and I am "just" an ADN student.

    I'm really tired of the whole ADN versus BSN thing--honestly, once you are working, you are an RN, period. I have not seen anyone get singled out based on their education.

    I can see why the nurse was irritated. I don't think asking for an easy patient is cool. Everyone has stuff to do outside of school--we ALL have to sacrafice.
