ok so I know that by 2015 that all NP's are suppose to have there doctorates instead of master's degrees right? well I was wondering if RN's with associates degrees are soon going to be required to have their bachelors degree instead? I have noticed that on the job postings at jewish hospital, for example, that alot of the RN positions that are open require a BSN. At least the ones that I am interested in (psych, geri-psych, etc...) I plan on going to for my BSN thru a bridge program at IWU or someplace anyway, but will this be a requirement in the years to come? if anyone knows, I would really appreciate their response. thanks!
