Probationary Terms Commonly Offered



I was wondering if people who have taken probation from the CA BRN can tell of what terms (1--19) they have been offered, and if those terms need to be abided by throughout the whole three year period.

Specializes in critical care, ER,ICU, CVSURG, CCU.

most all BON REQUIRE adhearance to any terms the entire time of stipulations or monitoring period

Well. I would say this. In Ohio some rules could be amended on the contract depending on the situation. You have to have a solid hold on the program: no missed calls, screens, put above average effort into your monthly reports, etc. Jump through the hoops and do so gratefully. My original contract said I was not allowed to be the only RN in the building. Tgen when I got a dialysis job, after a length of time and good behavior I was granted the ability to work afternoons and could be the only RN present. Of course YMMV and I'm in Ohio. A no overtime clause was overturned when I asked for it during a staffing crisis but I had to develop a plan on how I would keep my sobriety first. Or they assign you more meetings per month.

What kinds of terms were you hoping would be overturned?
