One Response to Nursing Education and Episode 167

  1. Gabe says:

    Thank you Jamie!!!! There are private for profit nursing schools opening left and right. There are too many programs easily being allowed. There tag lines are “No Waiting List” and they are charging outrageous tuition. $40,000. They are NP’s graduating from programs that have no medical care experience at all. There has to be a more stringent process for accrediting ADN programs as well as the Masters and Beyond programs. The perception of Dumb downed education is out there because of the so called Nursing Shortage. The rush to get more nursing programs out there has led to the glut of some mediocre programs with nursing graduates ill prepared for real world nursing. These types of programs do nothing to help get the respect from physicians we worked hard to obtained as nurses. I am glad Christy an ADN educator raised the concerns and doubts for many ADN nurses out there.
