what do u think will happen for the nurses who got licensed in CA before 2011 but graduated in 2005 to 2010?
If they are already licensed in CA prior to 2011 , then they are okay, unless they let their CA license expire
after 8 years, then they will be required to re-take the NCLEX again (as a first-time applicant and true for any domestic or foreign), they must meet the more stricter CA requirements and any current changes, meaning they could very well be denied to re-take the exam in CA due to the concurrency rules or lack of sufficient courses or lack of clinical hours.
It's more of the ones applying for the first-time in CA if one graduated between the 2005 - 2010 (and into the 2013), that will most likely get denied. There will always be a few of those that somehow did manage to get thru the CA BRN process, either they truly got their cases done concurrency (kind of rare), but there's been other posters here who knows of their friends or others who have "manipulated" their courses and cases to get their transcripts to look "correct".
Then there are those who's friends or batchmates who got their ATT's in CA, but they didn't?? Even being from the same class taking, same courses, same semesters together, same graduation year, how is that possible?
Wonder why the CA BRN is reviewing more closely of those situations?
It's called fraud
(in my books, that's being a low-life and worse than scum) and I have said in my earlier postings that if I knew of my own mother, aunt, sister, brother, uncle (luckily, none of them are nurses or in the medical fields and lucky them), best friends did that, I will have absolutely zero problems
with reporting their names to the CA BRN Enforcement Dept
. and you can go on-line or write to the CA BRN Enforcement Dept
. without giving out your name to have their license investigated.
This is a great part on why the CA BRN has been coming down so hard on the Phils applicants lately and why everyone that got denied the ATT should give out the names of these greedy and extremely selfish individuals.
You can "thank them" for the misery and disappointments and frustration. While they became nurses in CA, everyone else is scrambling to other states, some having to move from other parts of the State, while their hearts, families and friends are all in CA.
Is that fair that these self centered "nurses" and I use that term loosely, as I fear if they are willing to cheat their way thru the system, not play by the rules, that the real hard working PH students and nurses went thru, that they will also most likely cheat on their charting, short change their patients and overall possibly one day, injure, maim or even the worst of the worst thought to an innocent patient.
I don't care if today they are DON's, hospital office managers, clinical director, nurse manager, I would not blink an eye to report them.
But guys, don't shoot an e-mail that you know so and so, I don't and can't vouch for that person, you must simply do it yourself.
Guys, the idea is that if we "self-police" our own PH nurses to help the CA BRN weed out these undeserving so-called "nurses" and in helping them, we may turn the tide, the CA BRN sees that we're willing to show we will not stand for this either, it's not a guarantee, but it's a start in the right direction. If you guys know of someone like this and don't do anything, while these "nurses" smile at you and say "bummer, sorry, you can't work in CA", while they just deprived you of getting a nursing job in CA, then you just become a part of the problem and can't complain of the CA BRN stance.
You got your nursing job taken away from your "friend(s)", who really just stabbed you in the back.
Ok, off my soapbox now.
