  1. Docs at it again: Who is Responsible for Our Scope of Practice?
    Perhaps, but that still doesn't address why we don't have one point of entry; why in the effort to state that BSN programs are responsible for such elitist thinking, the unstandardized education and...

  2. Docs at it again: Who is Responsible for Our Scope of Practice?
    I don't believe you'll hear much, because the difference doesn't necessarily come on an individual level, aside from the personal fulfillment you feel in obtaining the degree, or apart from the job...

  3. Docs at it again: Who is Responsible for Our Scope of Practice?
    Well now I have a question for all those who continue to defend three, separate and distinct nursing education programs (LPN, ADN and BSN). Please explain how having various standards of practice...

  4. Lack of daycare or neglect?
    Absolutely NOT a daycare issue. As siri pointed out, if it wasn't this that killed the baby, it would have been something else.

  6. Online Translation Services
    Word of caution about free translation websites: most do not adhere to translation and fluency standards; you could be setting your organization up for liability.

  7. Docs at it again: Who is Responsible for Our Scope of Practice?
    I agree with what you said, but the AMA running the show won't lead us to have autonomy in the least. We wouldn't be autonomous anymore; we'd be an extension of the medical profession and our...

  8. Docs at it again: Who is Responsible for Our Scope of Practice?
    And your vision of the ADN being the accepted standard, when our counterparts in healthcare are moving even further beyond a BS, is even more comical. So what's the difference? My reality check...

  9. Docs at it again: Who is Responsible for Our Scope of Practice?
    So in essence, you are requesting that I no longer be a proponent for BSN entry, that I abandon the cause to have a standardized nursing education and practice, and thus ADNs and others will not feel...

  10. Docs at it again: Who is Responsible for Our Scope of Practice?
    Sorry to say, but my response to this is to just leave you two behind. I absolutely refuse to let another profession, let alone the AMA, take control of my practice simply because our own...

  11. Frustrated
    Not really sure why my position was called what it was (Patient Education Specialist). The position title itself connotes more of a consultant type role, which I'm fine with that, except the...

  12. Frustrated
    I love my job, but I am frustrated at my lack of influence; part of it being the title I hold and all that. Essentially, I function as a manager (as a program manager) attend all the same meetings...

  13. Docs at it again: Who is Responsible for Our Scope of Practice?
    Exactly. We need to take ownership of our profession before someone else does. Looks like that day is getting closer and closer, while we still argue amongst ourselves over an ADN vs. BSN. It's...

  14. Title of "BSN" on badge?
    I just love how people put down a BSN like it just "two" extra classes and essentially a few fluffy courses - nothing really substantial. I often wonder then, if a BSN degree is so insignificant...

  15. What do patients say that irks you?
    You know, it's been 4 years or so since I've staffed the OB floor, and so many times I miss that, but reading this thread made me laugh and in a way, understand WHY I miss some of that stuff! ...

  17. BSN vs BS title
    I agree with llg. The 2 designations, while similiar for all practical purposes, are two distinct degrees. Using BSN because it sounds better but if you did not in fact, earn it, would not be wise....
