  1. Still don't get the BSN ADN thing...
    And there is no legitimate study that shows it does. Just because someone puts out a study doesn't mean it's actually factual.

  2. ADN Nurses Being Forced to go Back to School?
    There are 2 issues I have, and I'm well on record spewing this out on other posts. There was a day when the smart thing to do was get a ADN then a B.S. in something else like management and then...

  3. July worst time to be in a hospital according to ABC news
    Oh now, be nice. We all know that nursing education today is more focused on new nurses being able to write papers. I'm sure someone with exceptional APA skills did this study and now has their name...

  6. Critique of nursing school
    But your MSN instructors sure can write a mean paper in APA format. Nursing education (both ADN-BSN and MSN) needs to be revamped to EXCLUDE mindless paper writing.

  7. BS or BSN
    If it's a B.S. with major in Nursing you're okay. Purdue University is (or at least was in past) the same way. They don't have a BSN, they have a B.S. with major in nursing and it's fine.

  9. The Case For Job Hopping
    I haven't read all the replies so someone probably already said it, but the best reason to jump after your 1st year as a nurse is the bump in pay. Usually the biggest pay bump you'll get.

  10. ADN to BSN credit by exam instead of papers?
    You're right, people hate writing papers. That's why universities have introduced non-thesis PhD programs. I never wrote long, useless papers for my 1st Bachelor's degree. Nursing programs need to...

  16. Why can't I do everything a RN does as a LPN? We should be equal.
    Pretty soon, M.A.'s will be able to legally do what R.N.'s do if people don't quit trying to make nursing more than it is. The academia school teacher PhD nurses are killing the profession while in...

  18. WHY do I need a BSN?
    Let's add to that, should a BSN from a private school be frustrated that they payed 50k+ for their education compared to a BSN from a state school that paid 25k and don't make anymore? But to...

  23. WHY do I need a BSN?
    If on your rubric, let's say APA is worth 2 points. How do you personally deduct points for APA mistakes? Probably different than the next person. What 1 professor will take a 1/4 point for, the next...

  24. WHY do I need a BSN?
    It's not they find more education offensive. You're not seeing the whole story. The number 1 thing I hear from ADN's in a BSN program is how much bull goes into writing paper after paper. The...
