If the laws change putting into effect the BSN as the entry level to one becoming a registered nurse, then I will support that law, and comply. If the law states that the ADN programs can continue, leaving the option to transition to the BSN program of study up to the one opting for that choice after receiving one's registered license, I will be supportive of that as well.
I will certainly be supportive of keeping LPN programs because I am a firm believer that they hold just as great of a professional importance in the healthcare realm today as they did in years past. I will remain supportive of them always. I am married to an LPN who is about to retire from the Army, therefore leaving him with a way to support his family until he decides what career path is for him next. I am also the mother of a LPN, and believe she has the right to remain an LPN if she so chooses (although she has already informed me that she will go on for her RN/AAS degree).
I have no regrets for being a graduate of an AAS Degree nursing program, nor will I hinder anyone else's right to do likewise.
Again, whatever the state laws delegate for nurses, that is what we will all have to abide by. The decision really is NOT in our hands, but the government and state heads that be. Money -- or the lack of -- will always be the determining factor for enacting certain judgments and laws anyway, so we have no real need to cause ourselves undue stress over a situation that is totally out of our hands.
Que sera - sera! Whatever will be - will be!
