Acticin Topical 30gm Tube $112.00

Acticin topical 30gm tube $112.00 Ah, acticin topical 30gm tube $112.00 another exciting Saturday night at the nurses’ residence!

Acticin topical 30gm tube $112.00 I’d love to make fun of this, acticin topical 30gm tube $112.00 but I was geeky enough to view this as absolute heaven at thirteen years old!

Acticin topical 30gm tube $112.00 Living in the dorm, acticin topical 30gm tube $112.00 wearing my cape (and lord almighty wearing my cap!), acticin topical 30gm tube $112.00 being casually professional and just all that and a huge bag o’ chips!

Acticin topical 30gm tube $112.00 And I’m still geeky enough to love every bit of it. Acticin topical 30gm tube $112.00 Including the dolls on the shelves!

Acticin topical 30gm tube $112.00 Found the picture in the Library of Congress collection. Acticin topical 30gm tube $112.00 Bless them. Acticin topical 30gm tube $112.00 What a treasure trove!

*****

Acticin topical 30gm tube $112.00 I’ve been sitting here, acticin topical 30gm tube $112.00 sort of quiet, acticin topical 30gm tube $112.00 watching the blogosphere.

Acticin topical 30gm tube $112.00 Watching nurses take up the eternal discussion of entry level into practice. Acticin topical 30gm tube $112.00 It’s been around forever. Acticin topical 30gm tube $112.00 I have articles from the American Journal of Nursing from the 1940’s talking about an entry level BSN. Acticin topical 30gm tube $112.00 I wrote an article about the impending demise of ADN programs for my college newspaper in 1977.

Acticin topical 30gm tube $112.00 My ADN instructors were rather amused.

Acticin topical 30gm tube $112.00 I’m sensing a change in the tone of the dialog since the release of the Institute of Medicine (IOM) Report on the Future of Nursing, acticin topical 30gm tube $112.00 with its focus on “seamless academic progression” (p. Acticin topical 30gm tube $112.00 163). Acticin topical 30gm tube $112.00 The goal is a nursing workforce that is 80% BSN prepared by 2020 (p.173), acticin topical 30gm tube $112.00 including currently licensed RNs.

Acticin topical 30gm tube $112.00 This encompasses all of today’s nursing force, acticin topical 30gm tube $112.00 taking this highly educated, acticin topical 30gm tube $112.00 experienced group, acticin topical 30gm tube $112.00 recognizing the value of (and the need for) advanced education and developing the current workforce while the future of nursing education is redesigned.

Acticin topical 30gm tube $112.00 It takes the focus off of where you started and puts the focus on where you want to end up.

Acticin topical 30gm tube $112.00 And that, acticin topical 30gm tube $112.00 my friends, acticin topical 30gm tube $112.00 is huge.

*****

Acticin topical 30gm tube $112.00 Remember the bad old days when it seemed like ADN = BAD! BSN = GOOD! MSN = BETTER! DNP = SAINT! PHD = GOD! LOL! Now, acticin topical 30gm tube $112.00 instead of seeing fierce turf wars and nurses at each others’ throats fighting to defend how well prepared they are or how they are just as good as another nurse with a higher degree…

Acticin topical 30gm tube $112.00 All I hear now is……quiet.

Acticin topical 30gm tube $112.00 Quiet…contemplation. Acticin topical 30gm tube $112.00 And, acticin topical 30gm tube $112.00 yes, acticin topical 30gm tube $112.00 believe it, acticin topical 30gm tube $112.00 civil discussion!

Acticin topical 30gm tube $112.00 For someone who participated in, acticin topical 30gm tube $112.00 and triggered, acticin topical 30gm tube $112.00 a few of the heated versions, acticin topical 30gm tube $112.00 this is amazing!

Acticin topical 30gm tube $112.00 I swear, acticin topical 30gm tube $112.00 you live long enough, acticin topical 30gm tube $112.00 you really do see it all!

*****

Acticin topical 30gm tube $112.00 And I hear questions.

Acticin topical 30gm tube $112.00 Why? Why should I get a BSN? What would I do with an MSN if I did get it? I don’t want to teach, acticin topical 30gm tube $112.00 or be a manager. Acticin topical 30gm tube $112.00 What else is there? Is it worth the money?

Acticin topical 30gm tube $112.00 Well, acticin topical 30gm tube $112.00 as someone who was never, acticin topical 30gm tube $112.00 EVER going to darken the hallway of a BSN course as long as she lived and who is now applying to MSN programs, acticin topical 30gm tube $112.00 maybe I can provide some perspective.

*****

Acticin topical 30gm tube $112.00 IF you are looking for a bigger paycheck or a huge pat on the back and a sparkle in the eye of your employer, acticin topical 30gm tube $112.00 well, acticin topical 30gm tube $112.00 you won’t find it by adding alphabet soup after your name. Acticin topical 30gm tube $112.00 I’m just bein’ real, acticin topical 30gm tube $112.00 as Randy Jackson would say.

Acticin topical 30gm tube $112.00 On May 13th, acticin topical 30gm tube $112.00 2010 I went to work as an ADN and on May 14th I went to work as a BSN. Acticin topical 30gm tube $112.00 My pay was exactly the same. Acticin topical 30gm tube $112.00 My patient assignment was exactly the same. Acticin topical 30gm tube $112.00 My name tag now said “RN, acticin topical 30gm tube $112.00 BSN” and I received a heartfelt “Congratulations!” from my co-workers that night and my boss in the morning. Acticin topical 30gm tube $112.00 [crickets]

Acticin topical 30gm tube $112.00 The immediate external rewards were few.

Acticin topical 30gm tube $112.00 The internal rewards are innumerable:

  • A sense of accomplishment. Acticin topical 30gm tube $112.00 I have a stunning diploma that I still stare at with a stupid grin every time I enter the den. Acticin topical 30gm tube $112.00 I am so proud of the work, acticin topical 30gm tube $112.00 dedication and stamina that went into actually earning that BSN after 31 years of nursing.
  • A better understanding of the complexity of our health care system and nursing’s place in that system. Acticin topical 30gm tube $112.00 My perspective has broadened, acticin topical 30gm tube $112.00 my public health experience linked health disparities to economic and educational disparities in a clear, acticin topical 30gm tube $112.00 visceral fashion. Acticin topical 30gm tube $112.00 Anyone can learn about it. Acticin topical 30gm tube $112.00 My program educated me on what can be done about it.
  • A heightened sense of professionalism. Acticin topical 30gm tube $112.00 I’ve always been professional. Acticin topical 30gm tube $112.00 I am now a Professional. Acticin topical 30gm tube $112.00 It’s hard to describe, acticin topical 30gm tube $112.00 most of these intrinsic changes are, acticin topical 30gm tube $112.00 but there is something in the BSN curriculum that broadens the understanding of Nursing as a profession, acticin topical 30gm tube $112.00 the place of Nursing in health care and the place of individual nurses as health care leaders.
  • A better nurse. Acticin topical 30gm tube $112.00 I was good before. Acticin topical 30gm tube $112.00 I’m better now. Acticin topical 30gm tube $112.00 I see the whole picture. Acticin topical 30gm tube $112.00 I thought I saw the whole picture, acticin topical 30gm tube $112.00 but I didn’t know enough to know what the whole picture was. Acticin topical 30gm tube $112.00 It’s like playing Angry Birds on an iPhone. Acticin topical 30gm tube $112.00 You can be great at it, acticin topical 30gm tube $112.00 but then you get an iPad and you see things you didn’t know were there. Acticin topical 30gm tube $112.00 You know what to shoot for. Acticin topical 30gm tube $112.00 You know where to aim to hit the Pig.

*****

Acticin topical 30gm tube $112.00 Okay, acticin topical 30gm tube $112.00 that was a little simplistic.

Acticin topical 30gm tube $112.00 What I’m trying to say is this: the rewards that come from getting an advanced degree in nursing are going to be intrinsic, acticin topical 30gm tube $112.00 at least at the beginning. Acticin topical 30gm tube $112.00 The better opportunities, acticin topical 30gm tube $112.00 the offers you could not consider before, acticin topical 30gm tube $112.00 those will come later. Acticin topical 30gm tube $112.00 At first, acticin topical 30gm tube $112.00 you are going to have to want this for you.

Acticin topical 30gm tube $112.00 Your coworkers, acticin topical 30gm tube $112.00 your manager, acticin topical 30gm tube $112.00 your employer, acticin topical 30gm tube $112.00 they will think it is very nice. Acticin topical 30gm tube $112.00 And that’s the last you will hear of it. Acticin topical 30gm tube $112.00 Or they will tell you you’re nuts for spending the money for nothing, acticin topical 30gm tube $112.00 that they have better things to do with their time and their paycheck.

Acticin topical 30gm tube $112.00 I will tell you that you will experience an unbelievable personal and professional growth that you cannot even imagine right now. Acticin topical 30gm tube $112.00 I can’t even explain it because it is different for each one of us. Acticin topical 30gm tube $112.00 And that’s just what you will get out of it.

Acticin topical 30gm tube $112.00 It’s a win-win situation. Acticin topical 30gm tube $112.00 You get personal growth. Acticin topical 30gm tube $112.00 The nursing profession wins through your education.

Acticin topical 30gm tube $112.00 Now multiply that by every single patient you take care of for the rest of your career.

Acticin topical 30gm tube $112.00 Now tell me it isn’t worth it.

Acticin topical 30gm tube $112.00 It’s so worth it I’m onto an MSN in September!

Acticin topical 30gm tube $112.00 What are you waiting for?

    I’m entering a BScN in the fall, but as a new nurse. Thanks for the inspiration – and congratulations! – now I’m even more excited! Oh and can I still have a cape? They’re adorable.

    Kim,

    I really enjoyed this blog post. I’ve always been curious as to how ADN’s and BSN’s were perceived in the workplace. One question I have for you- you said one day you came to work ADN and the next BSN and your salary did not change. I was under the impression RN, BSN required a higher salary than ADN?

    My husband told me if I was going to spend so much time trying to get into nursing, I should just get a BSN and start there.

    He was so right! I wouldn’t be anywhere I am today without it. And I’ll keep on going until the MSN is done. There are more than just management jobs for MSNs and I’m so happy.

    Yes, I do feel professional, not better than anyone, mind you, just professional. Bring it on!

    Great blog post and comments.

    I am a 2nd generation nurse. My mom insisted that I graduate with a BSN. She had found it very difficult to go from an LPN to RN and then pursue her BSN. It was much easier to go back for my NP with a BSN.

    Yes, I still miss the ICU:(

    nurses are continually learning; whether reading up on something old or new, etc. it makes since that nurses would seek higher degrees.

    Will be interesting to see if that 80% is reached. Most of the nurses I know, almost all of them ADN prepared, have no desire to pursue further education.
    I encourage and tell them all the great things it can do for them and nursing, and they have no interested. They state there will be no benefit for them, their pocketbooks, and that feel they are “good enough”… whatever that means.
    I think we need to encourage continued education, rather in be at the college level, CEs, or whatever else. We cannot become complacent in assuming we “know enough” or are “Good enough”

    Thank you for posting this. I teach in a RN-BSN program where I get questioned about this topic all the time. May I use your comments in a handout to students? It is so much better than anything I’ve seen in books/journals/etc. I am really impressed with your definition of “Professional” vs. “professional”. Students struggle with this all the time.

    Don’t assault patients or allow doctors to assault patients. Demand better from the American medical system which is presently a dangerous disgrace.

    Congratulations, everything you said in this blog regarding the value of having a BSN is TRUE!
    I will be done after 15 more credits, it feels awesome to be so close to the proverbial light 🙂

    BTW – I am completely addicted to your blog – you are awesome!

    This post is fun and informative. I especially loved the “geeky” find of the caped crusader nurse photo. 🙂

    Thank you for your insight.
