A colleague lists the credentials "RN, BAAN" after her name in her signature. I've asked once before what it meant and she dismissed the question, refused to respond. What is a BAAN? Anyone have a clue?

The only thing I could find is it is some sort of computer system software certification used primarily in India. Sounds like someone is trying to look impressive.

@JKL33 What kind of nursing degree is a BAAN? Is it some kind of associates credential? I've never heard of a BAAN, especially in Canada it's either BScN or BSN or BN.

I know that in Minnesota especially, there are a few BAN programs (as opposed to BSN). It's a bachelor's degree (I'm guessing Bachelor's of Applied Arts in Nursing).

You're probably right but why wouldn't she just say that?

Apparently Canada is one of the few countries that DOES have a BAAN degree.

Is that a hypothetical question?

In what province? I live in Canada and I'd never heard of any educational institution handing out BAAN degrees for nursing before. Nursing degrees here are either: BScN, BN, or BSN.
