Do you think getting a RN-BSN is worth it?

The only reason I got my BSN was because it is a Magnet hospital and I had no choice..


I am doing it now. Waste of time and money. Does not make me a better nurse I'm only doing it because it’s required for work.


I just finished mine at 46. I feel it’s worth it if you would like to move into management at some point in time. I do feel like it gives you more opportunities and a leg up for jobs over an ADN candidate. All of this varies from location to location however. And as former ADN, now BSN, I feel like BSN stands for “basically the same nurse”.


Yes, I do think it's worth it if you want to get into a leadership role


The only reason I wanted a BSN was that I knew I wanted to become an APN.

That’s also part of why I got mine. Midwife or nurse practitioner are in my sights.

Only if you want to continue your education and/or it leads to a pay raise.

Hey, this is my first post ever and wanted to get some insight of what the salary range looks like for a Logistics Planner. I wrapped up my last round of interviews and it’s leaning towards that I’ll be offered the position. I’m afraid that I lowballed myself by asking for 65-70K during the interview process. Please help

Have your teams truly imbibed NGGM?

Thinking of pivoting (in the next few years) from a big4 consulting firm making decent money to something more meaningful (to me) and hands-on but maybe seen as “lower”. I’m willing and able to go back to school or relocate for a new career, and as long as I can pay bills & save some, money isn’t a huge deal to me.

Some (def not all) ideas I’m spitballing:
Forestry services
Seasonal work in national parks
Radiology tech

Talk me into/out of it!


Hi All,

Anyone who has/ heard of fbookers who successfully switched roles and gotten a promotion (L3 to L4)?

Context I am planning a switch from analyst to data scientist from a non US location to US. However, L4 is needed for this jump (prob due to visa issues). With the current revamp in PSC cycle, I am not sure if I can successfully get promoted by next year and make the jump. To do so, I heard there needs to be 2 EE (for this half and next half).

What you should do when dealing with a very toxic worker that keep on sending passive aggressive messages to you as well as in group chat and email.
Things like when you answer his question he respond: I know that
Or when he keeps on saying my change requests were just minor in group meeting but actually not.
And keep on saying how hard he works when he clearly wasn’t and already underperformed compared to an intern level.

How to not let this toxic co-worker not poison me any further?
