Does anyone living in California know how I can obtain a Vocational Nurse Interim Permit? I'm graduating from VN school this week [finally!] and have heard that a few places in the area are hiring I.P's - but I was just on the state lvn website and I guess i'm just not looking in the right place because I don't see any information [except fees] on how to obtain the permit.

your school should be having you sign forms this week that they send to state for license applications.
2872.2. interim permits.
an applicant for license by examination shall submit a written application in the form prescribed by the board.
after completion of a board accredited or approved nursing program and approval of the application, the board may issue an interim permit authorizing the applicant to practice vocational nursing pending the results of the first licensing examination.

if the applicant passes the examination, the interim permit shall remain in effect until an initial license is issued by the board. if the applicant fails the examination, the interim permit shall terminate upon notice by certified mail, return receipt requested, or if the applicant fails to receive the notice, upon the date specified in the interim permit.
a permittee shall function under the supervision of a licensed vocational nurse or a registered nurse, who shall be present and available on the premises during the time the permittee is rendering professional services. the supervising licensed vocational nurse or registered nurse may delegate to the permittee any function taught in the permittee's basic nursing program.
an interim permittee shall not use any title or designation other than vocational nurse interim permittee or "v.n.i.p." (added by stats. 1986, ch. 146 urgency effective june 10, 1986.)
