I work for a hospital in pittsburgh. There are a lot of them and we're called univeristy of pittsburgh medical center (UPMC) for those who aren't familiar. One of the hospitals recently made it mandatory to have your BSN to work there and if you have your ASN diploma etc you have to get your BSN in two years to keep your job. It's supposed to spread throughout UPMC eventually. I have my ASN but will be attending the University of Pittsburgh for my RN to MSN. Just wanted to know what everyone else thought about this. I know in Pennsylvania there is always talk of getting rid of the ASN and diploma programs which I think is a horrible idea. What are your thoughts?
