There was a cross-sectional study conducted in 2013, with the use of data from 21 University Health System Consortium hospitals,that analyzed the association between RN education and patient outcomes. The results from this study showed that Hospitals with a higher percentage of RNs with baccalaureate or higher degrees had lower congestiveheart failure mortality, decubitus ulcers, failureto rescue, and postoperative deep vein thrombosis or pulmonary embolism and shorter length of stay. This particular article stated that how studies dating back to 2002, linked the percentage of RNs in a hospital with baccalaureate degrees to decreased patient mortality (in-hospital and 30-day mortality, failure to rescue) However, other studies have not found significant relationships between mortality and nursing education. It further mentinoed how the few studies that examined the impact of baccalaureate education on other patient outcomes, particularly those that are considered sensitive to nursing care, did not find beneficial effects. This study also mentioned how the ducation of RNs did not affect hospital-acquired infections once other characteristics were controlled, whereas nurse staffing levels did (Blegen, Goode, et al, 2013).
Looking back on real life experiences, one thing I have observed is that some of the BSN prepared nurses that I have worked with were more skilled at critical thinking that the ADNs which now I can see why after being in this program which requires much more research. The BSN prepared Nurses are more detailed oriented in assessments and charting as well.
