No. I feel that once Obamacare comes to full fruition the healthcare industry will be stressed to the breaking point. It will cause the RN shortage to become critical. The only initials that will matter after your name will be R.N. I am an ADN nurse and feel that I have seen fine and horrible nurses from both backgrounds. For me the choice came down to a financial one. I am 48 yrs old and wanted a career instead of a job. With my ADN degree I got a wonderful career and not the debt that my BSN counterparts got.
