BRN application - I forgot to put that I have CNA license. HELP!!

Posted

Hi,

I submitted my BRN application 3 weeks ago, and just now I realized that they asked on the application (under the conviction section) if I have any health care license - and I do have my CNA.

Do you think they will reject my application because of that missed information?

Also, do you know when they would deposit the check that I sent?

Thanks!

A CNA is NOT a license. It's a certification. Hence the name Certified Nursing Assistant. Not Licensed Nursing Assistant.

of course its a license, you have to do a state board test from the nursing department in order to be a CNA. with that said I dont know if they will reject your application, you should just call and ask.

Yes you do have to put it down...I am also a CNA and u put my number on the application.

Ladies, it is NOT a LICENSE. It is a certification. Yes, you take a test, that does not make it a license.

Yea but I still put it down...but guess they won't say anything if she doesn't put it down.

And in that particular section it asks for license or certification so she had to put her CNA certificate number.

Thanks everyone. I will call them tomorrow and see what they say.

HI i DID THE SAME APPLICATION ERROR. DID YOU FIND OUT WHAT YOU HAVE TO DO? THANKS

HERE is the solution!!!!

1st, contact your nursing department secretary. (this is what i did)

2nd she told me to upload my license (scan your license and upload) and a short letter just stating that i have made an error and i mistakenly answered incorrectly.

everything worked out. This may be different since i am in California, and yes it asks if you have a license/certificate, so if you are a cna you will have to let them know. For me, we use breeze. I logged into my breeze account and there was an option to "upload additional information". I hope this helps. By fixing this, i received my att just like my classmates, i do not know the repercussion if you dont however, therefore, i hope this info helps.

example:

Application Number: 3.5-5.0

Application Date: 04/03/2018

To whom it may concern:

I, (insert name), do hold a CNA license. I mistakenly answered No under the question "Have you ever been licensed as an LVN or any health-care related license/certificate in California?". I would like to fix this mistake by providing a statement that I have health-care related certificate in California and therefore change my response from no to yes. I will additionally upload my certificate issued by the state of California. I do apologize for the inconvenience thank you in advance.
