You need to get with the BON for your state. How people can practice once they've graduated before they are licenses is entirely up to the BON. In our state, there is no such thing as a GN. If you work with someone who is functioning in the GN "role", they are not licensed and YOU are responsible for the care they deliver. The rules of what they can and can't do are usually spelled out quite specifically. Pay attention to those rules. There is no reason you can't have a good experience precepting them, it can be very rewarding for both them and you. Just know where the boundaries are and stand up for them.
Our unit got flooded with new grads a few years ago. One of our members of management were going to let them take patients on their own, before they were licensed since they were "GN's". I was all over this...no way was I going to allow that to take place. I cited the section in our Public Health Code (where our nursing practice laws are listed) and provided documentation that this was not allowed to take place. This member of management stated "well, the union has provisions for how GN's can work"...I had to remind her that provision hadn't been updated since GN's were phased out. The either changed the schedule or I was calling the state BON and CMS and filing complaints. It was amazing how fast legal got involved and the management team backed off and changed things. Stand up for what's right.
