NURSINGTB.CO Chapter 02: Pathways of Nursing Education MULTIPLE CHOICE 1. A faculty member explains to students that one concern of the American Nurses Association’s 1965 position statement designating the baccalaureate degree (BSN) as the educational entry point for nursing is that a. diploma programs remain the most popular educational program for nurses. b. it is difficult to monitor other programs for congruency with BSN programs. c. multiple educational paths create confusion for the public and the profession. d. some states are creating different licensure exams for different pathways.
