While hopefully avoiding stoking the ADN - BSN debate unnecessarily, I thought I'd share my experience with my state's consideration of BSN as entry into practice, as well as the BSN-in-10 initiative. About 3 years ago I sat... Read More

    Reading comprehension, it's what's for breakfast.
    Exactly my point in the first place.

    I don't see that any facility would hire an RN whose main role is butt wiper when they could pay someone much less to do just that.
    So, I can only find that you are unaware of the different nursing care delivery models. BECAUSE THEY DO PAY RN'S TO DO THIS!!!!

    omg.

    When have I EVER (ever, ever) said anything about floor nurses needing a master's degree??
    Again, reading comprehension, it's what's for breakfast. At this point you apparently have no idea what you were even defending. Go re-read and get back to me, masters promoter.

    I said, "they could pay someone much less to do JUST THAT."

    You may want to take your own advice on reading comprehension. The keyword in that sentence was "just."

    Here's your sticker.

    Oh yeah, "main role" was another key phrase that was bypassed.

    You obviously have some poster's names confused because I have not once in my life said that bedside nurses need a master's degree. Either that, or you are having trouble with the comprehension piece again. If you can find one time where I ever said a bedside nurse needs/should have/would be better with a master's degree or anything of the sort then I'll change my name to butt wiper.

    Yep, and "just that" only has one meaning.

    I can't really explain the other way "just that" can be read. At this point I'd just be trying to teach a pig to sing.

    No actually I don't need to do that at all. If you want to jump in defending others' posts, then maybe you should read all of the posts so you know exactly what you're defending. Don't know what to tell ya.

    You'd have better luck teaching a pig to sing than you would with finding a post where I ever said bedside nurses should have a master's degree. That's for sure.

    You know, it's really ridiculous that just because someone doesn't agree on ONE particular issue (oh...like the ADN/BSN as entry into practice, for example) that every other topic has to be misconstrued, misinterpreted, have information omitted, etc. just to raise an argument even where there isn't one.

    There are plenty of actual things that have been said to disagree about without creating arguments that don't exist.

    Just because I agree with the fact that there is and will be a shortage of nursing faculty (because, well...it's true) doesn't mean I have to agree with every post that the initial member who posed the topic has ever made.

    Again, it's possible to agree with someone on one point without agreeing with every point they ever make. It's also possible to disagree with someone on one point (or several) without disagreeing with every single thing they say.

    Who do you think wipes them when the CNA's are cut?[/QUOTE

    An even better question is, why do you wait for the CNA to be cut to wipe them?
    I believe she interpreted this answer as personal to her rather than the greater question of "if an RN sees poop should she just go ahead and deal with it herself or wait for the CNA" which I guess is what you were getting at there?

    I just left the mangled quoting the way I found it. :-)
