The Washington Examiner: Obamacare regs give nurses a headache
By 10/26/15 12:01 AM - Add registered nurses to the list of people getting headaches from Obamacare.
The new law is accelerating a push toward requiring them to have higher-level education. Many nurses find that it isn’t easy to get a job without a four-year degree, which traditionally they haven’t needed.
“You do have hospitals increasingly expecting that nurses have at least a [bachelor's] degree,” said Diana Mason, former president of the American Academy of Nursing. “The Affordable Care Act is raising the bar.”
