    It doesn't fall under investigations, but education and curriculum requirements. Two separate departments first of all. It was under discussion by their BON, not sure what ever came of it. Again, it is the responsibility of the nurse to do a review of the BON of their state.

    California was very up front when they put restrictions on the EC program. Those that were already in the program, or who had their enrollment documents submitted by a certain time, were allowed to be able to get a CA license. So plenty of notice was given. Kansas issued a decree that became effective immediately, and those students were in a lurch until Kansas put a program into place to allow them to finish their program and meet licensure requirements.

    I can understand the need for more clinicals. I graduated from EC 4 years ago and have done great being that I was an LPN for 26 years prior to EC. The clinical with EC is a real joke. You basically don't have to know anything except how to memorize the memomics and pay the $1,500 to EC. Does this law in California mean that if I did move to California I wouldn't be able to practice? That would be crazy.

    It is the responsibility of each and every nurse to review the requirements of the Board of Nursing for their state, so that they know what is accepted and not accepted.............do not leave the info as is coming from friends, or even here. Do a search.
    Very well said. I remember years ago, I contacted the Missouri Nurses Association regarding a nursing program & they said it was not approved, I then asked the State Board of Nursing & they said that it was. One's own BON should be their source of information.

    You actually graduated before the cut-off day, so you would be meet their requirements.
