What degree does your administrator have?

  1. They are looking for a new Director at my agency. Have said the director will need a Masters Degree. I know that there are other agencies where the administrator does not hold a Masters.

    Masters. They are pushing for everyone to have BScN's here, so it makes sense that mgmt have Masters...

    Masters. Our county agency is also pushing for all BSN's.

    The agency I left mandated a PHD in Business, not nursing.

    In my agency, there is no administrator, just managers. I have more education and experience than any of them, but I can't stomach the unethical requirements of administration. I've "been there; done that!" Usually they put MANY requirements for the positions when they advertise, but the truth is, the position is given to the first sucker dumb enough to apply. Usually that is someone from outside. Anyone already working and seeing what the positions really is like, knows they don't want it, so have probably already turned it down!

    I forgot to add: Some people are just suckers for titles, and will tolerate anything to have a label that sounds important. One of our hospitals hires a position entitled "Assistant Administrator." In reality the position consists of being DEMOTED to night shift to resolve all the problems in the entire hospital.

    You could quadruple my income or more, and I will still realize I have worked well over my quota of midnight shifts in my life, no matter WHAT title they bestowed upon me!
