  1. Is the RN--->BSN push a clever way to get older nurses out of the way
    I disagree on a number of points from an in-patient provider perspective but it's far to off topic to debate here as this is a healthcare systems issue not a nursing education issue. Your...

  2. First NP job as hospice
    That's a tough job for a novice NP unless you want it to be your future specialty. In my opinion.

  4. Is the RN--->BSN push a clever way to get older nurses out of the way
    If there was good data on what particular components yielded the best results (and there are studies in progress right now on this on both the RN and NP level) then this could be used to develop...

  5. Is the RN--->BSN push a clever way to get older nurses out of the way
    Is there a recent study or data that supports this? It's not my area of expertise, but it flies in the face of everything that I recall from education and practice. In fact, I try my hardest to keep...

    Provided they meet the appropriate criteria in association with a college or university. Any less and the students of these programs pay for and do the work without the recognition.

  10. Which certification are you using, AANP or ANCC?
    You should be well prepared to take either or both. They are both basic entry to practice exams. There is no overwhelming reason to take one vs the they other than perhaps the credentials of generic...

  12. Is the RN--->BSN push a clever way to get older nurses out of the way
    I wasn't very clear there; in my opinion there is no reason why the CC programs can't continue the trend of bridging/partnering with colleges and universities in providing lower cost bachelor...

  13. Is the RN--->BSN push a clever way to get older nurses out of the way
    Isn't the difference credentials and education? Really I was trying to illustrate the point that credentials (RN vs NP) and education do make a difference. As far as the rest of that, it's off...

  14. Is the RN--->BSN push a clever way to get older nurses out of the way
    Have you ever taken a research class? You can appreciate the difference between critiquing the conclusions the authors draw from the data and questioning the validity of the data right?

  15. Is the RN--->BSN push a clever way to get older nurses out of the way
    Curious, what do you make of the research data that opposes your option that there isn't much difference? I agree with you about bachelor-prepared nurse should be equivalent to BSN. There is some...

  16. Is the RN--->BSN push a clever way to get older nurses out of the way
    If there was a transition to BSN entry, how would nursing "lose a lot of new talent"? I am not sure where the "thrown away" comes from, is someone actually advocating for delicensing current ADNs?

  17. nervous
    OP, There are many types of nurses and many different nursing roles: two of them, licensed practical nurses (LPN) and nurse practitioners (NP, APN) are similar in name but not in function. This...

  19. Is the RN--->BSN push a clever way to get older nurses out of the way
    Playing a bit of devils advocate here, but would you say that there is a current need/demand for "expedited nurse training" akin to WWII? Again, education and experience are both important factors...

  20. Is the RN--->BSN push a clever way to get older nurses out of the way
    So eliminating the ADN pathway to entry by requiring a BSN bridge would result in half as many nurses? Is there that kind of nursing shortage?

    Please point out any place where someone has argued that RN experience is not an important factor in patient outcomes. This has been demonstrated in the literature countless times, as has staffing...

  24. Is the RN--->BSN push a clever way to get older nurses out of the way
    Have you read studies that demonstrate improved patient outcomes from techs with ADs? For bedside nurses with MSNs? I haven't read those studies, and if they exist, then perhaps that argument should...

  25. Is the RN--->BSN push a clever way to get older nurses out of the way
    I see lots of posts arguing what is best for individual nurses. I see fairly few arguing what is best for nursing as a profession and, more importantly, what is best for the patients.
