Hi, i'm a 15 year LPN about to enter 4th semester RN school, projected grad date in May, '10. I have noticed multiple posts regarding advancing education to BSN. Our instructors have now given us new info regarding proposed legislation which would make it mandatory that ADN's progress to BSN within 10 years of obtaining licensure or lose your RN license. My problem with this is due to my age (41) and locale (rural SW oklahoma), I really have no desire to continue to 4yr program. I really don't see myself in administration, and in this area, the pay scale for BSN is no different than that of ADN. It's not that I have a problem with continuing ed, and kudos to those who have pursued thiers. However, what I do have a problem with is having my choices taken away by legislation. Any thoughts/info on this?
