1. Hi everyone ! Im new on this site and don t know much about all this RN-BSN etc. titles because I come from Croatia. We have very well education here, but need some time to lear all about sistem of education all around the world, especially in USA. I am a scrub nurse allmost 3 years now, before that I was a surgery nurse. I would really like any help from anybody who could tell me what does RN-BSN, LPN-RN, RN-MSN etc. means. TNX!!:uhoh21:
