i remember reading somewhere along the line, maybe the state board of nursing website where cna's were not us citizens and the passage below is taken from the website secondary to a new law. it is all part of the changes taking place with the laws changing regarding immigration. i guess that just have to be official, and perhaps the e-verify is based for companies? and not licensing boards? i am not sure?
federal law, 8 u.s.c. 1641, and state law, a.r.s. 1-501, require documentation of citizenship or nationality for licensure. if the documentation does not demonstrate that the applicant is a united states citizen, national, or a person described in specific categories, the applicant will not be eligible for licensure in arizona.
if the board has received your application after 1/1/2008, and the application you completed did not contain a proof of citizenship form, you will be required to complete a form and submit documentation evidencing citizenship or nationality prior to receiving your license/certification.
