Question for RN's

  1. I am a nurse who helps seniors get their drugs from Canada for a commission. When I have recruited other nurses to do this they have wondered if it is appropriate to put RN on their business cards. What do you think?

    Are you licensed in the US or Canada?

    Is this legal for a US RN to do?

    Recently - in our town, an RN has opened her own business doing this. It was in the papers and on TV. Not sure how I feel about it. I got wind of it because I'm a case manager and one of my jobs is to research cost-effective ways for patients to get their meds. However, our legal department at the hospital won't allow us to recommend this business. Since putting "RN" on your business cards implies that you are a medical professional I would be concerned about this.

    There is an excellent discussion about this topic on the Nusing Activism Forum. At this point, I do not want to merge the threads but may later. Here is the discussion thread:
