    I do believe there are just too many nurses. Period. This is another reason to make BSN the entry level to practice. The American Association of Respiratory Therapists just announced their plan to implement the the bachelors in respiratory therapy the entry level requirement by 2020. I think the nursing profession is getting left behind. Having the BSN requirement would place more value on each individual nurse.
    I feel so bad for you FL nurses. I cant imagine taking such a drastic cut. It really is a slap in the face for administration to be so ready and willing to take advantage of the nurses.
    We could have BSN as entry to practice long ago IMO if nursing had taken the well trodden path that respiratory therapy is now taking.
    Such a common sense and established path isn't good enough for the ANA and other. They won't be happy until every nurse who had the gall to practice with only an associates degree is punished by being forced to return to school, or is demoted to a "technical" nurse.
    Anyway it wouldn't make any difference. Those that deliberately created the glut of nurses would just continue their highly successful tactics and create a glut of BSN prepared nurses.
    The goal is the same, to take away the power that nurses had by making us disposable and easily replaceable.

    The ANA needs to just make a decision to increase the education, and go with it.
    Nothing I have ever seen indicates that BSN as entry to practice is remotely interesting to the ANA. They are all about getting revenge.

    I honestly think having a BSN entry level is good for the nursing field and could promote higher pay rates and less pay cuts.
