I am wondering what the differences in RN and BSN are. I am in the process of deciding to get my RN or go all out and get my BSN. Is there a big difference in pay for BSN, or do (small towns) just want nurses, not depending on... Read More

    my guess would be because there are too many adn educated nurses who have a voice

    *** dang! how how can we keep them from having a voice? what right do they have to participate in any discussion related to professional nursing?

    and they are more worried about their pride so instead of raising the standards

    *** there has been no proposal or discussion related to raising the standard. the discussion is only about bsn as entry to practice.
    uhh....requiring a bsn in order to practice is raising the standard.

    who said they shouldn't have a voice? don't take one part of what i said out of context (literally) and twist it to fit whatever on earth is inside your head.

    *** that may be your opinion. i know some others share it but i don't and there are those who agree with me. i have a bsn. i feel like i got dumber as a result. the level of discourse in the program, at a well respected state university, was very disapointing. pathetic actually. not to mention entirely fluff. in my opinion bsn as the sole entry would be very damaging to nursing. i believe the different entry points create a diversity and strength not enjoyed by many of the other health fields. we would be lowering the standard.

    *** well i guess they should be allowed a voice. too bad their pride, and lack of education, keeps them from expressing it like professionals.

    i have a bsn.
    after seeing how you jump on every bsn thread and get so personally offended by any statement that implies getting a bsn in this job market would be wise....

    quite frankly, i don't believe you.

    *** No problem. You have obviously confused me with another poster since I am not, and never have been, or indicated in any way, personally offended by any statements that imply getting a BSN in this job market would be wise. Many comments to the contrary in fact. As I have said previously a number of times, in todays job market I suggest going directly for the BSN if possible.
    You have either confused my comments with those of another member, or engaged in "wishfull reading". That being when you read what you want to read, rather than what has been written.
    MSN soon!
