Bachelor's degree may be required for Iowa nursing programs
The requirement that all nurses will need a bachelor’s degree is still hot on the table.
In mid-November, the Iowa Board of Nursing met in closed session to discuss the proposal of requiring nurses in Iowa to earn a bachelor’s degree. Their next scheduled meeting is Dec. 13 in closed session, and a public hearing will be held sometime after that date.
According to a Des Moines Register story, health care groups “argue nurses increasingly coordinate care in homes and other settings outside (of) hospitals, a responsibility that requires more than two years of education.”
