    Hi dragon lady!!
    What forms did you send to your school?? just the Record of Nursing Program? and about the Live scan, where can I get the OCA number? I'm so confused. someone please help. thank you.
    this is for the LVN application.

    Hello,

    I Only sent Record of Nursing program to my school and I asked the BRN to transfer my school documents to the BVN.As for the Live scan,download the form on the bvnpt website and bring it to a live scan store or in UPS store.Then send it with your application,if you have your record of nursing program,much better,your $150 fee money order or check,record of conviction form which you can find on the website,high school and college diploma.
    Good luck and God bless us.

    Steppybay,So its like a chain of command and the nurse is on the top. if theres a lot under the nurse like the assistant and the lvn/lpn what else would the rn do here? No offense to the nurses here , but in the PHI, the nurses are all around you can see them all over the medical facility doing everything specially in the govt. The CaBON should give us hard working and competent nurse a chance to take that exam ! And they will see how dedicated and compassionate PHI NURSES in our field! Feel sad still..
    It's like someone else mentioned in another thread in another part of this site. Think of it as the RN is the officer in charge and LVN's are the enlisted soldiers. LVN's don't always see the whole picture but are required to listen and obey the commands of the RN. Yes, the RN is the boss of you.

    As such, the RN's are held to a higher standard and have more responsibility and can stand to lose their license if found they have not performed properly of their duties, including possibly if an LVN messes up in her job duties. You can't compare with what we do or did in the PH to the States, we're in a different set of priorities with different set of rules and regulations.

    Basically, how it mentioned to me was the CNA's and LVN's do the basic "grunt" work and I don't mean that in a degrading way, it is what it is.

    RN's are more involved with things that doctors used to do in some respects, so that it frees up their time with other patients, but not a lot, okay, so that others don't try to become doctor's. Most RN's don't need or required to change beds or clean up after a patient's bedside stuff, but there's a lot more.

    But really, it's best to read up on what LVN's can do and what they can't do in CA, as it can be different in other states. I think in CA, LVN's are more restricted to what they can versus other states.

    Hi Melai! Good news for you and for all of us! I'm always reading here for updates regarding bvnpt. My wife is doing exactly what you have just that the school is still taking care of the documents to be sent to BVNPT. Do you know how long it took the BVNPT to examine your grades by the time it arrived (assuming you had a tracking number with it)? Any information would be greatly appreciated melai. Good luck on your exam!

    I thought that your wife was taking the deficient courses at Loma Linda? Why go the LVN route?

    Suggest you find and read the two threads exclusively that overs these same subjects in better details, some step-by-step process, it's all there.
