I’m afraid it is turning that way 🙁 Not only that, NPs in my state are going to be required to have a PhD degree instead of a Masters’. Requiring additional degrees during a time of a tight economy seems like a bad idea to me. I have a BA in zoology and an ADN for nursing. There are some positions I have been turned away from for not having a BSN, such as MAJ in the Army, a public health job, and some Admin type positions, but I think it is a shame that someday I won’t even be able to perform the bedside nursing which I have been doing for 17 years because I will no longer be qualified.
