RN-BSN: The next step in nursing education


It has been fifty years since the American Nurses Association (ANA) first advocated for baccalaureate degree be the minimum degree for entry into practice as a registered nurse. Only one state ever required a BSN as entry into practice and it only lasted a few years before they reversed course.  Today 55% of nurses earn a BSN and many more return to continue their education from the ADN to the BSN.

Today Alicia Hutchings joined me to discuss reasons to continue one’s educations and specifically discussed the program she will be leading starting in January, 2018.
