Quote from EricEnfermero
I find it reassuring that even in California (the site of the most ugly, drawn-out legal battle involving EC) they grandfathered enrolled students.
When CA changed its rules to get rid of Excelsior as a route to RN, it grandfathered in people who were already enrolled or who enrolled by Dec. 5, 2003.
You folks can't take CA's example as reassurance. Not all states reacted in the same way.
After CA's decision, Kansas jumped on the CA bandwagon but had no plan in place as to what they were going to do.
They were totally disorganized in their haste to copycat CA.
They simply stopped issuing licenses and allowing people to take the NCLEX, leaving many people in limbo caught in the crossfire for months before they finally came to a decision.
There were people who just graduated or were about to do so, suddenly put on hold until they got their act together and actually made some concrete rulings.
They loosened up once they realized that their state had a significant number of people who were already told by the KS BNE that they would be eligible for licensure at the time they enrolled but I find it scary that it happened in the first place.
