Thank you for such a detailed response.
Not an assignment. We covered scope of practice, types of healthcare providers, state requirements and authority. It's weird not just the requirements but also state to state. I graduated with my bs in math a couple years after the recession and job security has been mediocre. I just started my RN this semester ( luckily I applied before before covid was an issue) and was looking at all the options. I have become more weary however when programs push more and more gradute schooling ( it's just the debt I really enjoy learning) or when there is another profession that has greater flexibility than can fill you niche. I've seen organizations exploit these flexibilities in the past. I was only looking to see if there was a general opinion about the future of nursing education and maybe career outlook.
