Interestingly, now Abbott downplays this little resume issue as a clerical error.
Seems this guy musta lied decades ago, since he's worked there for a few. His credentials are what helps allow Abbott to have approvals in certain filings and the support of shareholders and all that time it was a lie.
And nurses are forced to BSN-only hire situations? Hey he's not Bill Gates or Steve Jobs -- not making a handy little computer or phone-thingy for us all to play with. He's been responsible for a pharmaceutical company. One of the largest in the world. Successful businessman or not, I'd be PO'd if I was facing downsizing (coming soon for the split), especially if I was fretting about not having a masters in Bio-chem putting me on the chopping block. Did he even pass chem 100?
