Guinness world record

  1. 2
    I have been seeing a lot of people post this on facebook:

    " The Bachelors of Science Nursing (BSN) degree has been chosen as the toughest degree among all the college degrees by the Guinness Book of World Records on 18 MAY 2011 . It has 64 university exams + 130 series exams + 174 assignments within 4 years (max 1000 working days ). All BS nurses post this on your wall for at least 2 hours and be proud to be a BSN degree holder."

    Now I would LOVE to believe this, but I can not seem to find it on the guinness website or when I google it. Im thinking it is another hoax . Does anyone know if this is real or not?

    Since when did a BSN have 130 "series" exams? What 'is' a "series" exam? I guess my BSN program wasn't a 'real' BSN!

    Looks like its some sort of hoax. I can't find it anywhere on the Guineness website and the only thing that comes up when I do a search is facebook posts etc.

    Even when you search the date May 18, 2011 on site, it doesn't show anything even remotely close to it.

    I think that it IS probably the toughest regardless of consideration from any organization. And I do not have a BSN!!

    Since when is the difficulty of a degree measured by the number of exams one must take to earn the degree? If you are going to try to determine the difficulty of a degree by exams, it is going to be quality, not quantity.

    Plus, if I am not mistaken, Guinness does not delve into such subjective "records."

    I know that the ADN RN program is challenging with numerous exams and I have heard some professors say that it is more intense then the BSN program, either way, nursing school is vigorous whatever route one takes.
