Default Didn't want a BSN but had no choice in the matter

After 10 years as an RN I decided I wanted to be a Nurse Practitioner so at age 56 I re-entered the college life. I had to get my BSN if I wanted to be an NP so naturally that is what I did first. Of course I didn't get any raise or recognition at work that I had earned my BSN. I certainly did not want to go into any kind of management. I am a nurse who loves patient care. Hated to spend the time and money to get my BSN but what other choice did I have?
