In California, a new grad can have interim permit, but, that shows up on the BRN, and from what I remember, is only good for 6 months while you're trying to get your license. You can be hired as an RN with the interim permit.

Just like #18 - I was a "Nurse Extern" between my junior and senior years of nursing school. Local hospitals hired RN students graduating the following year to shadow a nurse and do CNA duties. It was a much higher rate of pay than a CNA job. I got paid $15/hr for it when the going CNA salary was $9/hr. It sounds like he's still in a very similar position to me.

It sounds like he's faking/hiding stuff. I'm not sure exactly what a 'RN intern' position is, but unless it's a work-here-til-you-actually-get-your-RN situation, the employer would be stupid not to verify his licensure via the state BON site. Even my dinky employer is always seeing if we renewed & so on.

Lesson to be learned: Don't lend money to family and expect it to be paid back in a timely manner or at all.

If one has "other responsibilities" a "I do not have money to lend you" and end of story.

There are people who generalize "nursing school" to encompass everything from CNA, medical assistant, phlebotomy......and for profit schools use this to attract a LOT of students, and keep them for as long as they can for as much money as they can.

There are multiple scams involving schools that when done and tons of money, one can not sit for NCLEX because the school is not accredited, or some other thing.

Nurse intern could be a fancy name for a CNA. Who knows? With customer service health care, it could envoke some sort of better feel good image that nurse assistant does.

Bottom line, OP, you lent out money. Once you lend, you have lost control of those funds. Unless you have a loan agreement, that is signed, I am not sure of what could be done. He could say he thought it was a gift. Going forward, if you decide to lend money to anyone, have repayment terms written out and signed so all are on same page. Or in this case, ask for a bill and pay the school directly, after spelling out repayment between you both.

This manic undercover stuff to "out" him....is this getting any of your money back? So now he has a job. Now you ask his plans on repaying you. Even 20 bucks a week is something. Open a dedicated savings account, and ask that he add it to his direct deposit, 20 a week from his pay.

The rest is on him. He also could be a new grad who isn't working at all due to lack of positions. But he has a job. So now he can do something to help get your funds back.

I had a family member I gave a little money to years ago "cause it's family". The person had already dropped out of school. Come to find out they still had loans. Now they live off the system. Anyway, don't mix money and family with an expectation of being paid back.

Well said Jade!

I don't loan money- to anyone for anything. If there's a need, I give if I'm able. Once I give, it's no longer mine.

Let. It Go.

Step away from the drama. Never give money---especially to a relative--- with strings attached. Either give and forget it, or don't give at all. If you learn to minimize your involvement in family drama you will be surprised how peaceful your life becomes.

Best advice, I think. Economics should be left out family relations being too often it ends up in drama. If you're willing to lend money there is always a chance of not being repaid. It's a lesson learned, an expensive one. Do not lend money to people.

Best chance if you want to take them to small claims court but, you would need to show paperwork of proof of loan.

Even if they call it a loan in my mind it is a gift. Otherwise you have to be prepared to lose the money or the relationship. Usually both.
