For the past 15 years I have been working at a clinic as a LPN. I went back to school at the request of my site coordinator in anticipation of a newly created job in the same clinic. Long story short..funds dried up and the new position is going to be staffed with current LPN's/CMA's ..now I'm a RN looking for a job, still working in the clinic LPN position, for LPN pay. I'm fine with that for now, as it has only been a few days, but here's the question... I went and got a new RN name badge, went to the clinic and requested a change for my signature in our electronic medical record and was told because I was hired as a LPN, they would not change my signature unless I was employed as a RN. Can I keep signing my name LPN if I'm a RN? I was told I could not repersent myself as a RN as I was still in a LPN position. I went to the BON website and searched thorough the statues, boy is there alot of them, can't find anything. I would think I'd have to sign RN regardless? Any one had this happen or have any idea's. The gals at work got me cupcakes..I got a new badge..but I can't call myself a RN.
