  1. Mr. Robertson,While I appreciate the concrens raised in bringing the legislation, I remain concerned about the approach. The community colleges raise valid concrens regarding their enrollments, but I have some reservations with those concrens as well.I would rather see a straight increase in the requirements for licensure on a date certain if this change is going to be made. Say that all RN’s graduating by 2018 must have a BSN degree. And then support the community colleges in creating BSN programs at their institutions. Really this should not be difficult as most associate degree programs are really three year programs now (with prerequisites, etc.). But the real problem, as you mentioned, is the faculty in these areas. And the problem there is money. Unless nursing faculty are compensated in a manner appropriate to the education required, then there will likely continue to be issues and raising the educational barrier for entry to practice will not solve that problem. I will use my wife as an example she has a MSN and MBA and works in management in an acute care hospital (and makes right at six figures, even in Texas). Even I (with my associate degree) was making an hourly rate that would have put me around 68K if I was full time (42 hrs/wk). Nursing faculty at the community colleges, with the same degree requirements as my wife, are more in the 50K 55K range, or starting salary range for new associate degree graduates (or under it). That is a massive disincentive to seek those positions.And I am concerned about the one-size fits all approach to the issue of increased educational requirements. As I noted in the original post, my nursing degree is an associate degree (from Regents/Excelsior, BTW). But I obtained my nursing degree after having a BS in biology/biochemistry and a MS in Biochemistry. And 13 years of experience in EMS as an EMT and paramedic. So I’m not convinced that requiring someone like myself to obtain a second BS degree would be the best use of educational resources. But then again, someone like myself is the minority of those obtaining a nursing degree. But those with degrees looking to change careers are a fertile source of potential nurses, so you can’t discount my experience as requiring a BSN may well have discouraged me from obtaining a nursing degree (well, not really, I would have just done the BSN program at Regents, which would have required an extra year or so, but that is only about me).Plus, I just don’t see the public paying for the increased educational requirements, either through increased salaries to attract more qualified faculty or through the higher salaries in healthcare occupations brought on by the increase in educational requirements (which are not supported in an age of declining reimbursement rates for healthcare services).Good luck with your BSN program, though!Marc Meyer
