BSN. One of the most significant positive outcomes of this educational opportunity is that the RNs who need to obtain their BSN are given a chance to earn their degree within the organization that they are hired and the managers can work around the school schedule. A negative component to this system is that the school is set up in traditional semesters so there are only two times that the BSN can start which can put a damper on staffing on an already short- staffed floor. Both outcomes should be considered and weighed before deciding to utilize this resource. Conclusion This paper described a national healthcare stressor: bachelor prepared nurses. We looked at how this issue impacted a new hospital within Kettering Health Network. Data from Troy Hospital were reviewed, as well as journal articles on this subject. A closer look was taken at the competitor's approach to addressing this issue within their organization. The positive and negative outcomes were also reviewed, and a summary of strategies was provided to help focus on this issue within the organization.
