Just putting this out there. I have a great BSN Nurse who would make a great supervisor however I have 3 MSN nurses who refuse to be supervised by a BSN nurse. They do not want to step up , nor do I really want them to anyway. Has any BSN supervised MSN or above or have any MSN been supervised by a BSN and how did this work?
I got my MSN before my unit supervisor even got her BSN.. For me personally, it didnt change my attitude towards her.. nor did it make my head swell out of pride.. I have seen a fellow nurse who got her NP and oh my! she started giving us the 'high-and-mighty-attitude' , I have colleagues who have completed medical school and they still communicate with me as old colleagues.
For me, I went to get my MSN for career development and better opportunities.. What I am trying to say in effect is that, some people feel that because of their advanced degree then all others should bow to them.. I dont personally care if my supervisor is BSN or not.. some positions are giving based on experience with leadership etc..
I had no issues with my director, and I still dont..my plan is once I get the career opportunity I am looking for, I go for it.. meanwhile, I remain in my humble position and do my job the best I can...
