I really don't want to go back to school for a BSN just because some education nazi wants to push for more people to go into debt to make them look good and keep the college industry turning!
However, I could be persuaded if I was given full tuition reimbursement, my choice of schools
and a fair wage increase for the effort! But I think I'll be waiting a long time for that to happen!
Many of us already have a BA degree in another field and chose the ADN route out of expediency. I'm tired of the credential nation! What's with nursing anyway, so many of the "professional" nurses have so many abbreviations after their name and who knows what their all for. It seems so ridiculous, like name dropping, status seeking, and see how special I am! I really find it confusing and don't see why they feel the need to add all these different titles behind their name. Why is nursing like this anyway?
Frankly instead of pushing for a BSN, why not promote certifications related to a nurses specialty. I know its another abbreviation to add to your name, but at least it is very practical and timely for your field, that I could understand. But again reimbursement and additional pay should be part of the bargain!
