Anyone hiring nurse techs? Near OKC? New requirements from BON

Posted

I was reading how the board changed the requirements for nurse techs to enrolled in a nursing program. I wonder how they define that? I’m wondering if any place will hire you as a newly enrolled student when the requirements before were completing fundamentals I believe. I noticed some still want a year experience which I think might have been the old requirements.

From what I have seen, most employers for Nurse Techs, ER techs, etc. is still the first clinical semester completed. I have not myself seen any where enrollment in a program is a qualifying factor. Please let me know if you see any!

As long as the declared health emergency is in effect, a nursing student currently enrolled in a Boardapproved RN or LPN nursing education program may be employed consistent with the Board's Employment of Nursing Students or Non-Licensed Graduates Guidelines

Just wondered if any employers were using the emergency rules, but it doesn't look like it from what I've seen on job postings.

Oh, WOW!. I wasn't familiar with that! I'll have to keep looking around. Thanks for the info!

I haven't called the board and asked what their definition of enrolled was, but if I've paid my deposit I suppose that is enrolled, but maybe you have to show up the first day. I don't know.

I don't either. I would like to believe that enrolled is enrolled.

Hey, check integris. They have a bunch of Nurse Tech positions opened up. Most are PT or PRN though.
