    All right i have to fess up, as a diploma nurse for 41yrs, a super nurse out of the gate that arrogantly thought my first job at city of memphis hosp. ccu (now THE MED) i only spent like a week in orrientation, where the univ. Tenn bsn graduates, spent 6-8weeks etcetcetc, always been promoted head nurse, nurse clinician, director of er, director of nurses etcetcetc.....i felt superior to the bsn, out of the box, of course i had 3.5yrs of college as biology mjr, prior to nursing school, and picked up an assoc.applied science a few years back in resp. therapy... so accademics challenged i felt not :-) but if i am truly as intellegent as i propose to be, and my assessment and critical thinking skills are sharp, i would have to be a fool to think less education is adequate :-):-):-)

    At almost 64yr. Age i am connecting the dots, working a RN to BSN PROGRAM, that i should be through with in 6-9mos.
    i have an itch to complete an MSN- NP also. It isnt for a job, it isnt for money. i already am a director of nurses, it is for the professional challenge, continuation of being the best nurse I can be, and when i do end my nursing career like in 20more years :-):-):-):-), i will end it in prosessional standing of the times. Eating a little crow and humble pie in this case does not taste so bad.

    I think you are a great example to any nurse regardless of education level.
