Order of Professional Credentials/Degrees

  1. 0
    i have read general knowledge of people who have degrees and the correct order of professional credentials/degrees.

    http://nsweb.nursingspectrum.com/art...ialscf2003.htm

    https://local.google.com/answers/threadview?id=424820

    neither of these address my question however.

    i just obtained my degree master's of information technology [mit].
    if i drop my bsn from my list which is what is recommended to do i feel like i am loosing my "nursing" background. i believe in my education and feel its important for people to know i have my bachelors in nursing. bsn, rn is what separates a rn from a diploma or associates rn. by dropping my bsn people would still know i am a rn but not what type.

    there are people who have an associates rn and have a bachelor in something else.

    since i work in healthcare in a hospital setting up our clinical systems for our staff to use is it proper to just drop the bsn and just use mit or should i use both?

    anyone have any ideas?

    Why not use them both? Are the uncouth ninjas really that scary? RN, MIT, BSN, etc. Looks good on ya!

    I'd go "MIT, BSN, RN." Generally in academics the degree is listed before the license, but there's a lot of confusion about that in nursing since the BSN is often considered an "add-on" to the RN license.

    I believe you are correct, although I learned that it was one degree (the highest earned), then the license, then the certification. I don't see the harm in adding the nursing degree to the mix, like you said.
