    I have known several nurses who obtained their BSN and MSN through U of P. This is the kind of flexibility I'm talking about. I'm familiar with their program. U of P is a cost issue for some folks but again, it is looking at further educating nurses using a practical approach.

    Something I would like to see is a step education system, where colleges that offer ADN degrees have a systematic base program that then becomes the step on which all BSN programs add onto without having to go back and pick up 4-8+ (12-24+ credits) additional classes before one can progress to the BSN content. Since ADN programs are becoming more and more laboreous in their requirements, this should really be a matter of planning at its basic level. But ADN programs can't do it without some consistency from the universities, which right now doesn't exist.
