BSN nurses are getting DNP degrees. What do you think about this? Personally, I am not happy about this fact. I have had my BSN since 1987 and my MSN since 1992.

Here we are at the end of 2010. I heard on the news the other day that we
have now had the longest period of high unemployment since the end of the World
