    Just contact admissions and rescind your acceptance. Simply state a change in personal circumstance but you appreciate the offer

    I will never understand why an RN/ADN degree is not counted as a 4 year degree? Not only do they take 4 years to complete, but they have all that clinical as well. It really doesn't make sense. Just to get in the nursing program you need above average grades. So many students drop out because of they didn't have the mental and physical fortitude needed to get through it. It's far from easy, even grades are held to higher level than most majors. It's not like doctors or social workers could do our jobs despite their higher level of degrees. Comparing us to the other professionals in the medical field is grossly unfair.
    Because only 60 college credits are needed for an ASN whereas 120-128 credits are needed for a BSN. The number of years to complete is not relevant

    First return to employee health as this is a worker's compensation issue and you were injured at work

    If you are consistently below passing in one domain you need targeted remediation in that area. If you don't change how you prepare and remediate you will not pass. Sorry to be blunt. Review all areas but focus on the area that you are below the passing standard.

    What area are you below the passing standard?

    Then how can you do volunteer work as a nurse to get the "so called Canadian experience" if you are not licensed to do so? You cannot volunteer as a nurse in BC unless registered with CRNBC. An out of country credential does not permit you to practice as a nurse in BC even as a volunteer

    There is only one agency that evaluates credentials for all provinces except Quebec: NNAS. It is not a quick process and may take up to two years.

    There are no boards of nursing in Canada. The regulatory bodies for nursing are Colleges of Nurses. For BC it's the College of Registered Nurses of British Columbia.

    Here is the information for IENs:
    Registration for international nurses

    You start with NNAS & also are required to prove English language competency to the professional standards of CRNBC.

    I have no idea what you are talking about. Per your other post please seek the professional help you report that you need and hold off posting until stabilized. Good luck .

    Out of curiosity, how common is it to commit a category 1 HIPAA violation? It sounds like a very easy mistake to make, selecting a wrong file, am I wrong?
    Very easy. Especially if you are in a rush.

    While I understand nurses frequently volunteer in hospitals in the Philippines this is not an acceptable practice in North America. Only licensed nurses may work as a nurse whether paid or volunteer

    Exactly--how do I respond professionally to such unprofessional conduct by a colleague? Ignore it? I mean, what if continues?
    What if it was the RN who felt that you were not a good fit for the unit or appropriate for the job? You are projecting and making assumptions about your classmate when you have no objective reason to know so. Did the manager say, "based upon Lisa's impressions of you at the peer interview we will not be offering you the job"? I doubt it.
    There is exactly zero indication of "such unprofessional conduct" in your description of events.

    Be professional

    Don't assume the paranoid victim role.

    Move on in search of the next opportunity

    That's what I'm afraid of . I'll be at work in an hour. I think I'll just leave this case . It will be very uncomfortable situation after.
    Send an email to office management ASAP. If you walk into her leaving you with the sibling, call the on call manager ASAP to advise of the situation and the issue is documented. Do not document the sibling left alone in your narrative. Email the clinical manager & scheduler to be pulled from the case ASAP because you cannot accept responsibility overnight for the minor child sibling and the client. Cover yourself

    It's been a while for me but - do they make tamper-proof machines YET?!?!? .

    Maybe some really smart nurse or RT could invent some kind of cover-plate or screen that locks?
    There are lock out buttons and plastic face plate covers. I've seen them in pediatric home care to prevent helpful siblings or other visitors from trying to help if the nurse had to step away for a second.
