Consider subcontracting a PMHAPN(psych advance practice nurse) and a licensed clinician (LPC, LCSW) or two who can be credebtialed to bill insurance. Perhaps in exchange for office space to expand your scope of services to a one stop shop. I know you will screen your patients per standard of care. If you have 2-3 part time RNs perhaps offer to pay to maintain ACLS you are more likely to secure either semi-retired experienced nurse or a hospital nurse who works 12's looking for an extra shift or two. If all under 30hrs no benefits needed (I believe it's still in effect that you must offer minimum basic insurance coverage to employees who work more than X hours/weekly though the employee can decline. Another reason you won't want one FT nurse. Plus you won't have to likely worry about uncovered shifts. If you have 2 nurses that work 2 days and one that works the third)
Once up and ready to open, consider contacting local EMS agencies to visit your practice for a mini-open house to explain what you do and how there is a risk of seizures. This way if you need 911 they will know where to go and what to expect. Most areas require paramedics for seizures because medications like Ativan or Valium may be needed or even prehospital antiseizure infusions. Perhaps even reach out to local urgent care & ED to advise about your new venture. A $100 or so in snacks, drinks and promo flyers explaining your clinic can save a lot of time should the worst cas scenario occur and you need to 911 someone to the local ED. Many EMS & ED staff may not be aware of this treatment and effects
An EMT won't be able to do this. Salary no benefits too low for most nurses. Maybe a medical assistant.
The only ethical reason to take such a photo would be by police or investigators who brought an unknown person to a facility. There is exactly zero valid reason for the actions of the CNA.
It's HIPAA health insurance portability and accountability act. And yes HIPAA privacy rule survives death with only legal & public health exceptions (such as criminal death or death from a reportable communicable disease)
Refunds are for students who withdraw before school starts.
Incomplete is not for students that fail the same clinical skills exam twice.
I'm stuck on enema bag forced to work as primary IV. Way to kill someone.
Have you tried contacting the board of nursing or an administrative law attorney (one who has experience working with professional licensing boards/board of nursing)? I would venture to guess it depends on what kind(s) of "actions" you have against your LPN license.
When I recently filled out the application for my license after graduation, one of the questions was 'have I EVER had any action against ANY license in ANY jurisdiction?' This was also asked on the paperwork submitted for nursing school.
It is highly likely that it will show that you had an action against your license, especially since it was an action against a nursing/healthcare license. A HIPAA violation is generally taken very seriously. You might also want to ask at/inform your school of nursing, especially if this is a action occurred AFTER you applied to nursing school.
Also, there is an organization of nurse attorneys, www.taana.org that has a referral service if your present attorney is not experienced in going before professional boards/board of nursing.
That's not true in every state. In California, they're actually two separate boards. I'm not sure where the OP is located, though.
In any case, I agree that it's not going away. Even in California, with separate boards, application instructions state: Although we are making every effort to process cases as quickly as possible, if you have previous criminal conviction(s) and/or discipline on another health license it will take longer to review your application.
That sounds like these things are reviewed on a case by case basis which may be why the OP is unable to get a firm answer.
OP, you may not get your answer until AFTER you graduate and AFTER you apply for a license.
