The purpose of this project was to elicit the opinions of members of AORN of Central Ohio regarding Ohio's BSN-in-10 initiative. Using a focus group, we sought to answer the following question: is there a need to legislate that newly licensed RNs in Ohio obtain a bachelor's degree in nursing (BSN) within 10 years? Participants valued higher education but were not informed about the need for more BSN-prepared nurses. They also were not aware of the professional and financial effects of obtaining a baccalaureate degree, the available resources to assist them in obtaining one, or collaborative nursing association partnerships that advocate for BSN-in-10 legislation. The results suggest that health care policy advocates need to find alternative means to communicate essential information to RNs.
