Title:
Motivate RN's to pursue BSN
Abstract:
(41st Biennial Convention) This paper related to motivating nurses to pursue a higher degree.  In today’s increasingly complex healthcare environment, the role of the nurse requires extensive education in the sciences and humanities as well as higher order thinking abilities in order to meet the current healthcare demands.  In the United States, there are three types of programs that provide entry-level education into the nursing profession:  associate, diploma and baccalaureate.  These programs have profound differences in required education content, primarily concerning liberal education, community health, nursing theory and research.  Recent research shows that these differences in education, particularly between associate and baccalaureate programs, affect the quality of nursing practice, compromise client health and safety, inhibit professional advancement of nursing, and are a factor in the current projected nursing shortage.  Such research indicates that pursuing a higher degree in nursing may help to alleviate these problems.
