That was a typo. sorry, Wuzzie. I didn't go back to look at the spelling. I haven't slept in 48 hours, and that was out of memory. The other person I had called, "the other person", cause I couldn't remember without looking, and I can't see on my phone thread while I'm replying.... Don't take it personal, that's an a-typical name, Is that real? And if it is, I'm sorry again...Did not mean to mess up your name ✌️ my bad.

This is gross, and really irrelevant to the conversation. Are you SERIOUSLY posting your pay stub here??

OMG, and now you're posting your transcripts?? You are ridiculous.

Off topic. But, he is a workaholic. Wait... I worked 75hrs in a week.?

Apology totally accepted and you need to sleep. My username is my grandmother's nickname from an old children's rhyme.

I get that you are offended by OPs post and can understand. However, please do not insinuate that going for the BSN immediately vs obtaining an ADN and bridging is the superior choice. It simply isn't. What is best for one is not what is best for all. For MY situation, it would have been silly to spend thousands of more dollars getting a degree at a university vs a cheap ADN followed by the ability to earn as an RN while finishing a 9 month to 1 year BSN completion program.

And that's not even the only reason I went the ADN route. I had zero choice bc of poor choices I made years earlier. I was kicked out of university due to failing grades. My school would not let me back in without first obtaining an associate's degree. So the notion that all of us who went the ADN route first are somehow less smart by not having "planned accordingly" is in itself extremely offensive. It is more offensive than stating the honest truth that nursing theory and research classes ARE easier than, say a chemistry degree.

I didn't say that. I said if she had planned accordingly, she would not be SURPRISED that a BSN is required. I'm confused about how that is "extremely offensive". I'm not the University that requires a BSN...don't get offended by what I say... that is the fact the OP is discovering, sorry.

Maybe to you, a BSN is just an “easy, relatively useless, easy to obtain degree”, but to us it’s a whole career. Once you get to the hiring process without the required qualifications, you will understand how hard it is to get a job nowadays with or without a bsn. It looks like you have already experienced it here. Also, a BS in chemistry is irrelevant to nursing. My husband has a BS in chemistry, and it’s completely different. It’s a different field. If you wanted to be a CRNA in the first place, knowing the requirements are getting harder, you should’ve planned to enroll in a BSN curriculum not an RN one. What’s more, BSN prepare you more for the CRNA, first, it’s more relevant, second, it’s harder, deeper, and more to the details, and understanding the why behind the skills we usually do as nurses. I’m pretty sure this is very important for CRNA. Also, I recommend you get a personal journey for yourself for a better future, whenever you need to vent, and only post necessary questions. Professors in CRNA would want to hear that too.

Oh no, now we will have to here a litany about how 2 years of college better prepares one for nursing life than 4 years of college.
