I just passed the NCLEX and when I spoke to my nursing manager she said that in the past the hospital did not allow nursing assistant's to continue working once they were licensed but that they changed the policy because they know how hard it has been for new grads to find a job. However, I am a little concerned because during nursing school my professors told us that once we got our license we would no longer be able to work as a nursing assistant. I know in certain states the board of nursing does not allow it but I am not sure what the law is in New Jersey. Therefore, I am very confused! Help! Any number or email would be helpful!! Thanks in advance.
