    It is incredibly sad that for a certification like CCRN, or the additional (if that is how it's done) schooling for BSN that there is no real incremental pay increase. In my institution, the pay is based on years of licensing, and the clinical ladder. Don't get me wrong, the pay is adequate (if you figure auto workers make the same and LOTS more of overtime!!!) But .25??? Give me air! I have a Master's and no pay increase for that even though I choose (and enjoy) working at the bedside. No incentive to stay at the bedside with that either!!!
