    US nurses are generalist trained and require clinical and theory in adult, geriatric, obstetrics, pediatrics and psych/mental health. Most AUS nurses are deficient in obstetrics. It's very difficult to make up deficiencies. Deakin University used to offer the needed courses but I've read not so much any more

    We were not permitted to use clip boards in nursing school for a variety of reasons (size, ignoring patient to stare at papers, infection control...) 3x5 or 4x6 index cards or notepads that fit in pockets were all we were allowed. I made a template and cut it to 4x6 and had zero issues.

    Hi
    I am an internationally educated nurse in Ontario, Canada. My nursing assessment process has been done by NNAS for college of nurses ontario. I passed NCLEX-RN and i am a Registered Nurse in Ontario, Canada. Now i want to move to New York City as i got my green card few months back.

    I am wondering whether NYSED will accept my NCLEX-RN score or not? Do i need to do my educational assessment from CGFNS again? NNAS is a CGFNS's Canadian version.

    I am in a great confusion now. Seeking some useful information.

    Thank you.
    NNAS evaluates your credentials to Canadian standards. You need to have a CVS completed by CGFNS (approx 6 months) and then apply to the NY BoN for a nursing license by examination as an IEN. Only the NY BoN can say if the NCLEX you passed for CNO will be accepted in NY You will need to complete specific classes as outlined on the BoN website. Even if you had a NJ license as an IEN you would still need a CVS from CGFNS to apply to NY.


    You are aware that NYC is a very tight market with dozens if not hundreds applying for single nursing jobs posted, right? There is not a shortage of inexperienced nurses. There is more of a demand for experienced (5-10 y) specialty trained nurses (OR, NICU, ICU, etc)

    You don't take dose changes from patients or parents. You ALWAYS verify with provider/physician or pharmacist. If you were working inpatient psych would you take a patient's word for a dose change?

    Talk to the nurse manager. Never take orders from patient or family. Always verify from physician or in a pinch can check with pharmacist. Document. While not a critical error it is an incident report/medical error. You did not follow the standard of care by taking medication or any orders from a patient/family. Discuss it with your supervisor

    I am an LPN currently live in Missouri and had to go to our community college to start my bridge program because of TCN and no one accepting. I was not able to get out of the contract and have been paying for the last 4 years and never missed a payment. How do I get on board with the Lawsuit???
    The attorney name is listed in the article linked above from last year. You can google contact info.

    Are you in the US? That sounds like a private duty pediatric case. Does your employing agency do annual competencies with skill check off/demonstration?

    I'm sorry. Hurry up and wait is difficult. Were there any issues that may have triggered a hold/audit? Issues signing in, Palm scan, computer glitches, got excited when finished and stood up instead of raising your hand?

    Gofundme takes quite a chunk off the top of each "donation", then again when you retrieve the funds and it counts as income and is taxable. So if you actually succeeded at a GFM page it could technically impede eligibility for financial aid.

    Worst case defer a year until you get your funding settled. Federal unsubsidized loans are a better option than private loans due to protections. You could always look at a direct entry masters program which bumps you to graduate level aid. If you meet the qualifications there is the HRSA scholarship and loan repayment but it is extremely competitive

    You are missing information therefore no one can answer either query. And now you figured it out

    Only two states mandate phlebotomy certification for phlebotomists LA & CA. Many facilities require nurses to take an in house class for IV & blood withdrawal to demonstrate competency. Why would you assume a student MA (that isn't mandated to have any certification phlebotomist or otherwise) would be an accurate source? The board of nursing would notify nurses of a change in regulations just like RNs were notified they need organ donation CEUs.

    There is no such law hence why you cannot find it.

    The Board of Nursing is the Board of Nursing. Separate Boards (one each for LVN/RN) do not exist. A nurse is a nurse is a nurse.
    Not in California. There is the BRN Board of Registered Nursing and BVNPT and the Board of Vocational Nursing and Psychiatric Technicians.

    Thank you Have Hope. Recently just tried to do that as well...No nothing. I've tried calling VA BON several times and on the receiving end it's a touch tone dial. No one is there to pick up. I emailed and it was an automated response. I called Pearson and said I should call VA BON. I'm going to try to remain positive, but I do have a job that is constantly asking me how I did on the exam as well, so it is adding pressure. *sigh* For now, I will try to remain focused and actually will just start studying so I am preparing for the worst, and hoping for the best. Just like a nurse would do. Thank you all for your help. I'll update if anything else happens.

    Not to thread-jack here, but when I taught in public education, there is such a thing as National Board Certification: Once you put in all your blood, sweat, tears, and all of your free time, you could take an exam and attain certification accepted in all 50 states. Does such a thing exist for CNAs, LPNs, and RNs?
    Not for CNAs. RN & LPN is a national exam. Around 30 states participate in the nursing license compact as long as you maintain residency in a compact state. It's a license for nurses not a board certification. CNA is a short vocational course not a board certification.

    Lawyers, physicians, nurses, PT, OT and other professionals must apply for credentialing in each stage they wish to live and practice. Unlike AUS there is no national licensing board

    Not a student. But a nurse who claims to be licensed in AUS for over a year working in the operating theatre.
