Is any other hospital out there doing this? We have just been told that if you do not have a BSN, your pay will be capped and you cannot be promoted past a certain point. Oh and also the nurses that have been there a million year--they are making them either take a demotion in title or go back for a certification/BSN in order to stay at their payrate and title. There is talk about having the million year nurses being "granfathered" in ...... But about this whole thing ---I don't think this is really a smart thing to do especially in a recession and shortage. People are considering leaving and going to a hospital that does not do this. What do you think?
