as if a one year bsn and a year in training in the icu is better than a 2 year rrt degree, years spent working in the er and icu and then a biology degree. which one has more relevent education?
by the way the only good thing about the bsn degree is the clinical training which is also the easiest part. im from a family of doctors and nurses i know how little they teach in ur 1 year programs and how dumbed down the material is. Go ask most nurses what GABA is and get a blank look. how can u even teach physiology and not learn about second messangers? the bsn degree is a joke. i tell it to my family memebers who have one and for the most part they agree with me.
most the students with minimal healthcare experiance are 3.8-4.0 students with great gre of mcat scores from really good schools. i think they can make up for a 1 year degree by having the large amount of required classes that aa programs require/prefer and having more rigorous ciriculum.
