I'm not aware of any determination by the CA BON about the specific time limits you're considered a "new grad" in. Where did you see that information? I believe it's up to each facility to determine that.
If she does another internship, regardless of a regulatory time limit, the clock would probably be reset, anyway.
I never said anything about the CA BON, as it has nothing to do with the CA BON at all.
What is considered to be a "new grad" for those looking for a job in the CA market (and just using CA as an example here) and pertaining primarily to only job applications. So yes, it's up to each facility as you said.
Most of the CA hospitals are very specific in their application process watching the date you graduated from nursing school and that frame time is one year AND some are very specific if you worked one day as an RN and some are more lenient. Some say NO prior nursing experience at all (CNA and LVN jobs are okay, since one never used their RN license or should not have to be considered).
It has nothing to do when you got your RN license, it's strictly by the graduation date.
Here's one as an example:
UCLA, UC Davis, UCSF and even the medium size hospitals etal with 95% of them are very much the same with a certain time one can be considered a "new grad", again based on your date of graduation and none to less than one year of RN experience as the application dictates.
