Brand Drug Generic Name Viagra

Brand drug generic name viagra Ah, brand drug generic name viagra another exciting Saturday night at the nurses’ residence!

Brand drug generic name viagra I’d love to make fun of this, brand drug generic name viagra but I was geeky enough to view this as absolute heaven at thirteen years old!

Brand drug generic name viagra Living in the dorm, brand drug generic name viagra wearing my cape (and lord almighty wearing my cap!), brand drug generic name viagra being casually professional and just all that and a huge bag o’ chips!

Brand drug generic name viagra And I’m still geeky enough to love every bit of it. Brand drug generic name viagra Including the dolls on the shelves!

Brand drug generic name viagra Found the picture in the Library of Congress collection. Brand drug generic name viagra Bless them. Brand drug generic name viagra What a treasure trove!

*****

Brand drug generic name viagra I’ve been sitting here, brand drug generic name viagra sort of quiet, brand drug generic name viagra watching the blogosphere.

Brand drug generic name viagra Watching nurses take up the eternal discussion of entry level into practice. Brand drug generic name viagra It’s been around forever. Brand drug generic name viagra I have articles from the American Journal of Nursing from the 1940’s talking about an entry level BSN. Brand drug generic name viagra I wrote an article about the impending demise of ADN programs for my college newspaper in 1977.

Brand drug generic name viagra My ADN instructors were rather amused.

Brand drug generic name viagra 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, brand drug generic name viagra with its focus on “seamless academic progression” (p. Brand drug generic name viagra 163). Brand drug generic name viagra The goal is a nursing workforce that is 80% BSN prepared by 2020 (p.173), brand drug generic name viagra including currently licensed RNs.

Brand drug generic name viagra This encompasses all of today’s nursing force, brand drug generic name viagra taking this highly educated, brand drug generic name viagra experienced group, brand drug generic name viagra recognizing the value of (and the need for) advanced education and developing the current workforce while the future of nursing education is redesigned.

Brand drug generic name viagra It takes the focus off of where you started and puts the focus on where you want to end up.

Brand drug generic name viagra And that, brand drug generic name viagra my friends, brand drug generic name viagra is huge.

*****

Brand drug generic name viagra Remember the bad old days when it seemed like ADN = BAD! BSN = GOOD! MSN = BETTER! DNP = SAINT! PHD = GOD! LOL! Now, brand drug generic name viagra 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…

Brand drug generic name viagra All I hear now is……quiet.

Brand drug generic name viagra Quiet…contemplation. Brand drug generic name viagra And, brand drug generic name viagra yes, brand drug generic name viagra believe it, brand drug generic name viagra civil discussion!

Brand drug generic name viagra For someone who participated in, brand drug generic name viagra and triggered, brand drug generic name viagra a few of the heated versions, brand drug generic name viagra this is amazing!

Brand drug generic name viagra I swear, brand drug generic name viagra you live long enough, brand drug generic name viagra you really do see it all!

*****

Brand drug generic name viagra And I hear questions.

Brand drug generic name viagra 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, brand drug generic name viagra or be a manager. Brand drug generic name viagra What else is there? Is it worth the money?

Brand drug generic name viagra Well, brand drug generic name viagra as someone who was never, brand drug generic name viagra EVER going to darken the hallway of a BSN course as long as she lived and who is now applying to MSN programs, brand drug generic name viagra maybe I can provide some perspective.

*****

Brand drug generic name viagra IF you are looking for a bigger paycheck or a huge pat on the back and a sparkle in the eye of your employer, brand drug generic name viagra well, brand drug generic name viagra you won’t find it by adding alphabet soup after your name. Brand drug generic name viagra I’m just bein’ real, brand drug generic name viagra as Randy Jackson would say.

Brand drug generic name viagra On May 13th, brand drug generic name viagra 2010 I went to work as an ADN and on May 14th I went to work as a BSN. Brand drug generic name viagra My pay was exactly the same. Brand drug generic name viagra My patient assignment was exactly the same. Brand drug generic name viagra My name tag now said “RN, brand drug generic name viagra BSN” and I received a heartfelt “Congratulations!” from my co-workers that night and my boss in the morning. Brand drug generic name viagra [crickets]

Brand drug generic name viagra The immediate external rewards were few.

Brand drug generic name viagra The internal rewards are innumerable:

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

*****

Brand drug generic name viagra Okay, brand drug generic name viagra that was a little simplistic.

Brand drug generic name viagra What I’m trying to say is this: the rewards that come from getting an advanced degree in nursing are going to be intrinsic, brand drug generic name viagra at least at the beginning. Brand drug generic name viagra The better opportunities, brand drug generic name viagra the offers you could not consider before, brand drug generic name viagra those will come later. Brand drug generic name viagra At first, brand drug generic name viagra you are going to have to want this for you.

Brand drug generic name viagra Your coworkers, brand drug generic name viagra your manager, brand drug generic name viagra your employer, brand drug generic name viagra they will think it is very nice. Brand drug generic name viagra And that’s the last you will hear of it. Brand drug generic name viagra Or they will tell you you’re nuts for spending the money for nothing, brand drug generic name viagra that they have better things to do with their time and their paycheck.

Brand drug generic name viagra I will tell you that you will experience an unbelievable personal and professional growth that you cannot even imagine right now. Brand drug generic name viagra I can’t even explain it because it is different for each one of us. Brand drug generic name viagra And that’s just what you will get out of it.

Brand drug generic name viagra It’s a win-win situation. Brand drug generic name viagra You get personal growth. Brand drug generic name viagra The nursing profession wins through your education.

Brand drug generic name viagra Now multiply that by every single patient you take care of for the rest of your career.

Brand drug generic name viagra Now tell me it isn’t worth it.

Brand drug generic name viagra It’s so worth it I’m onto an MSN in September!

Brand drug generic name viagra 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.
