President’s Message

Dear Members and Colleagues,

While traveling over the holidays to visit family, I came across a short story. In 1924 a British explorer, George Mallory who endeavored to become the first person to reach the summit of Mount Everest disappeared into storm clouds that gathered around the peak, he was never to be heard from again.

RN to BSN

The New York State Association of School Nurses is comprised of Registered Professional Nurses with a variety of academic preparations. The “RN to BSN in 10” legislation has been supported by NYSASN since its inception.

The amendment of educational law as outlined in S3520/A1842 is described in the Memorandum of Support, RN to BSN talking points, and RN to BSN letter. NYSASN believes the future of health care as well as the future of nursing is dependent upon its implementation. Please review these documents to understand our position. All nurses currently in practice will be “grandfathered” and therefore not legally subject to any additional educational requirements. Also, there is a provision for an “extension” beyond the ten-year limitation to obtain a BSN, if necessary, which provides adequate protection for future registered nurses.

After review, please share the RN to BSN letter and talking points with your state legislators. Raising educational qualifications elevates our entire profession.


Memorandum of Support and supporting documents can also be found here, under advocacy/legislation.
