"Regular" college vs. Nursing School
Gimme some perspective here. My wife just finished her first semester in a 2 year nursing program. Last night I was yapping away comparing my time getting my bachelor's degree to her time in nursing school thus far. I was promptly stopped and told that there is no way I can possibly compare my time in college getting a "regular" degree to nursing school. She said that nursing school is far harder than any 4 year bs degree I could get. I expressed my doubt over this and she stated it had to do with the fact that nursing school requires more critical thought because she is presented with a case and she has to make a diagnosis whereas, as she put it, I just had to read something in a book and then write a paper about it. I'm sure there's something to her argument but I think I got a little miffed having my entire undergraduate experience thrown out the window as not being nearly as tough as a 2 year nursing degree. Anyone able to compare them for me?
