The Effect of Supplemental Podcasts on Test Scores of RN to BSN Research Course Students

Joanne McDermott

Abstract: For over 50 years the profession of nursing has voiced the belief that the level of the Baccalaureate Degree should be required for entry into the practice of professional nursing. Despite the increasing complexity of the healthcare environment through the years, the status quo prevails. In 2010, challenged by the Institute of Medicine to achieve 80% of practicing nurses with a BSN by 2020, institutes of higher education are clamoring to fill the gap between Associate Degree and BSN nurses.
