A comparison of second-degree baccalaureate and traditional-baccalaureate new graduate RNs

 Implications for the workforce

This report, published in the Journal of Professional Nursing, defines the similarities and differences between the traditional-baccalaureate graduates who had a baccalaureate degree in nursing and no other academic degree or diploma, and second-degree baccalaureate graduates who had both a baccalaureate degree in nursing and a baccalaureate or higher degree in a field other than nursing. The two groups were compared on demographic and work characteristics – which include attitudes toward work, intent to stay in their current job, and whether they are searching for a job.
