Recently my CNA instructor - a LPN with over 25 years experience - told us that effective this Fall she can no longer teach CNA classes because WA state is putting changes into effect for nursing instructors. I believe she said all levels are affected: for example you need a PhD to teach BSN classes and a BSN to teach CNA classes.
Does anyone know where on the Web these changes are posted? I googled using several key words and looked at Dept of Health but no luck. Thanks!
A BSN will be required to teach CNA's? Good grief. To me this sounds like nothing more than academics creating locked up non bedside areas where only they can practice. They already have a lock on many nursing positions already. Sad too IMHO.
An experienced LPN is more than qualified to teach basic CNA skills IMHO... I wonder how many BSN nurses will WANT this lowly task? <sigh>
