I was told by an instructor that the state of WI is trying to make this a law. She said that if it went through, those of us who would be grandfathered in would have 10 years to complete our BSN. A nurse that graduated 10 years ago said that back then they were trying to pass the same law. Who knows.....I'm not going to hold my breath! Just wondering if anyone else had heard that rumor.
There has been a fair amount of publicity about how NY and NJ are currently considering a similar proposal. I've not heard anything about WI considering it, and I can't find anything about it on the Net. The only thing that comes up is the DPI rule about school
nurses, which apparently did get passed.
I obviously don't know anything about the instructor who said this to you, but they are not always an infallible source of information (although one would think they probably would be) -- lots
of people post here asking about stuff they heard from an instructor which turns out to not be true.
If it is
true, and anyone can find any documentation of this, I'd certainly be glad to know about it.
