D.Nurse, BA, RN-BCThis should be the credentials behind many of our nurse's names but it seems this new push for "magnet" would have our accomplishments squelched and ignored completely. Indeed, Bachelor's educated women were sought out as nurses and even fast tracked through nursing schools, they were deemed so valuable. According to the nurses credentialing site, the highest EDUCATIONAL degree is listed FIRST as it cannot be taken away from you. These degrees are usually on campus not online. Many of us have twice over the number of hours a nurse has with an ADN plus online RN to BSN program. When I started working I was rewarded for my bachelors on the career ladder. Now it's for BSN only. How fair is it to change the rules in the middle or end of someone's game? Career nurses with years of experience being forced back in the classroom or early retirement?. Where is our grandfather clause? When did job and military experience stop being valued and acknowledged in the workplace?
