Strategy to Increase Percentage of BSN- Prepared Nurses by 2020 The ABC Healthcare Center is an acute care facility that has been providing healthcare for decades in the state of Florida. This organization functions under the functional structure and practices the participative leadership model with a top down flow communication module to communicate with their employees. One of the most important recommendations of the institute of medicine (IOM) 2011 to increase the number nurses with bachelor science of nursing (BSN) degree to eighty percent by 2020 (IOM, 2011).
The BSN in 10 bill requires newly licensed registered professional nurse to attain baccalaureate degree in Nursing within 10 years of initial licensure as a condition of renewal of the license. It states that, “The bill requires registered professional nurses (RNs) who are initially licensed by the New Jersey Board of Nursing, on or after the effective date of the bill, to attain a baccalaureate degree in nursing within 10 years of their initial licensure. The bill authorizes a licensee who is not able to attain the degree within a 10-year period to request a one-time (up to two-year) extension of the requirement in order to complete the degree.

In the nursing world it has been a debate for a long time and is still current over whether or not nurses with a bsn degree are more proficient than nurses with just a adn degree. The difference between the two is the education requirements. Adn is a associates degree whereas the bsn is a bachelor's degree. There is about a two year gap between the two degrees in length of education. The debate is over which is more beneficial to patients and the work field overall.
In the transition of the associate degree in nursing (ADN) to the bachelor of science in nursing (BSN), colleges prepare nurses in the leadership role by increasing their knowledge of community health nursing, ethical aspects, and being able to apply enhanced patient care through research and evidence-based practice. The elements that retain and increase the completion of the RN to BSN program by the nurses are met by providing access to organizations and offering foreign aide health missions. ADN nurses with an improved education to the BSN are more prepared to tackle potential nursing challenges and have better patient
Returning to college as an adult learner is a difficult decision at best. Consequently, it is somewhat like deciding to have a child. When is the right time, what is the right circumstance, can I afford the additional expenses and how will I bear the additional responsibility? Becoming complacent with a career as an Associate Degree Registered Nurse, focusing on family and life, instead of earning a Bachelor of Science Degree would be the easy option.

Debra, In my practice, I also see more white nurses in a managerial position than the minority groups. Another consideration is the diversity in the age of nurses. The average age of nurses in the workforce is increasing, which means that over the next ten to fifteen years one-third of the nurses will be over 50 years old (Andrews & Boyle, 2016). At some point, our country will be suffering from a nursing shortage due to this group of nurses retiring.
An advanced degree is a potent symbol of commitment. The pursuit of college education requires the ability to explore ambiguities, to research and to defend positions on a variety of subjects and to express this information cogently. Each course of study mandates completion of peripheral learning activities necessary for comprehensive education. This type of learning is possible to attain independently. What distinguishes formal education is the opportunity for feedback and guidance from fellow students and professors who value learning for its own sake, rather than an adjunct to a particular trade.
