So my hospital is telling me that CMS is now requiring all licensed RNs in the ICU to have a copy of their diploma or transcripts on file in HR proving they graduated from nursing school.
If you have a license, doesn't the state issuing the license do a background check and make sure the requirements (graduation) are met prior to issuing a license?!
If CMS is nationwide, then we should all have to do this correct?
Is everyone diggin their diploma out to copy when they have been licensed for 20 years?
