Same here, Ron. My employer pays a pittance more if you have BSN after your name. I keep the RN and do the same job, but I don't have BSN on my nametag. It definitely would not pay me to go back to college just to have that title on my badge.

I went to college at the age of 41 and crammed 4 years of learning into 2 years. I graduated at the top of my class and am doing the work I love to do. I take care of the sickest patients in the hospital, and I take the same continuing education classes as those with BSN after their name.

I don't mean to badmouth those who have continued on with college. I would have, too, if I had more years until retirement, but it wouldn't benefit me now. Besides, I'm sticking right here in the country. I could attend college here, but would have to commute nearly 200 miles each way for my clinicals. No way. I already commute that far to my job in the city a few times a month. I think I'll just work for a few more years until I have our new house built. :-)
