    Very nice post. The school is stopping my daughter from becoming a nurse. (At least at that school. There are others out there.) They would not accept her application packet because she did not have the score they wanted with her TEAS, yet, she has a 3.8, A's in all of her classes, and current student. The school is supposed to look at all the criteria and not just one piece of the puzzle. Very frustrating!
    If your daughter has severe test anxiety and does not qualify for accommodations, how will she take the mandatory, high pressure NCLEX-RN that is timed/time limited and ranges from 75-265 questions?

    Many who don't pass the TEAS do not have the essential academic skills needed to be successful. Those with test anxiety but have the academic skills may need accommodations.

    If your daughter was diagnosed by a licensed healthcare professional then she can self-identify to the office of students with disabilities and request accommodations for test anxiety.

    Nursing school is extremely competitive in many areas especially affordable public schools. The initial application review keeps the students who meet ALL the admission criteria. Those who lack in one area but perhaps highly qualified in all other criteria may make the second cut.

    If timed test anxiety is the only facet preventing her from achieving the minimum TEAS score she should consider consulting the office of student disabilities. They may have resources for your daughter to over come or at least cope with test anxiety and achieve her goal.

    It's a holiday weekend. Hang on at least until Tuesday. Keep in touch with your instructor if you don't hear back on Tuesday. If for some reason there was an unforeseen issue with the assigned preceptor your instructor will facilitate reassignment.

    Hurry up and wait is very difficult. Try and enjoy the weekend. Hopefully it's a simple issue like the preceptor is off for the holiday.

    Seek a medical attorney. Hospital policy is very clear but your where a student with a educational institution this might of not been made clear to you. Looking at a pts record that you are not involved in their care is a big No. But if having permission or written permission by a text to look something up for your mother, let's say because she was confused about a medication and its side effects or she was given instruction and confused and embarrassed to ask questions and she ask you to look up in her chart the name of the drug. It might not be considered a HIPPA violation especially if her asking for information from her nurse and the info was not given to her and she went a different route by asking you because she knew you could get access. I'm not saying it was right and I don't want to give false hope. But when I comes to being dismissed from school, or someone is disciplined, fired or fined. ALWAYS seek medical legal advice.
    No she needs an administrative law attorney not a medical attorney.

    The American Association of Nurse Attorneys has a lawyer referral service. Even if it costs you a couple of hundred dollars for a comprehensive consultation it is less costly than repeating your education. The one factor on your side is this is your mother and hopefully she will verify you had permission.

    Most states have a minimum age for certification and work of 18 (19 in NE) unless you are an emancipated minor you cannot consent to follow HIPAA. You can't do certain skills you can't legally work in certain environments

    You may wish to consider an alternate career path. You can try calling other schools and inquiry while not disclosing your name but giving info such as dismissed from another program due to confidentiality issue

    Will this make it difficult for me to get into the medical field if the hospital does nothing?
    Yes. You were dismissed from a nursing program for violating patient privacy. You will need to disclose this to other schools especially if you received financial aid

    hi
    thanks for the info. i just called today and was told that i need to take the full nursing program and the school will do the evaluation whether what subjects can be credited. since now im an lvn already um guessing its only the remaining 2 out of years of the full nsg prgm that i need to take. or do i need to take everything back to zero?
    You need to consult with the school of nursing there are extremely few LVN to BSN programs, but it may be 3+ years of study depending on what is credited. There is no simple answer. You need to contact the nursing school admissions departments directly

    it says there that i need to retake the clinicals here in us. but the school needs a list of subjects from bon stating specifically what subjects i need to take.
    Your clinical and theory coursework did not meet CABRN legal concurrency standards. There are a few slots in private schools with long waitlists of IEN for acceptance and high tuition fees.

    There are dozens of threads in the nurse registration forums of internationally educated nurses in the same boat as you. The deficiencies are in obstetrics/maternity, pediatrics, psychiatric/mental health, and/or medical surgery (one area or any combination). If any of your cases (cord care, delivery, surgical, etc) were a single day outside of your theory course dates you are out of compliance.

    The initial letter should have specified any and all areas of deficiency and whether they can be retaken or if you must retake a comprehensive nursing program. You need to contact the staff that evaluates the credentials of IENs. If it's been three years since your evaluation then your file has been destroyed

    Most states send a paper license as a formality. Check your BoN as in many states require online license verification as it can be updated real time

    I am going to guess that dismissal from the nursing program will not be the only discipline I will receive. I am so ashamed, I never would look at a patient's chart that wasn't assigned to me; my mother shouldn't have been any different. Stupid. 2 months shy from graduation
    The odds of getting fined or sanctioned in this scenario are very low.

    The hospital doesn't go after you, they notify HRSA of the HIPAA violation. Fines range from $100-$10,000

    Is this by chance a special needs child? There are groups out there that tell parents every little injury gets an incident/accident report and the parent must demand it from the school.


    I'm like not exactly...

    I took the Nclex delaware BON last Thursday,May 19 and just checked the delaware website if I got an active license but the result is Pending.. How many days will I know the result? Its been 6 days right now, May 25.. My comp had stopped at 75 items and I'm also confident that I answered most of the questions correctly..
    Kindly help me to be enlightened on such too long results. Thanks
    If you have an active license & number you are licensed which by default means you passed
