    Catheter Change Question (May seem stupid!)

    No question is ever stupid. I worked in the community setting and often did routine catheter changes. I always found them tricky if the patient had a empty bladder. I often would ask my patient to drink a glass or two of water prior to the catheter change. I also would try to palpate the bladder if I did the catheter change and no urine has returned. This often helps with the urine flow. Lastly I always flushed the catheter and ensured it flushed with no problem and no pain. Also after inserting the catheter I would have the patient walk around for 5–10 mins, often this would help to see if any urine would return. I also felt uneasy and did not like it if there was no urine return because it always questioned me if I was in the right spot. Lastly patient education about returning to the ER, MD etc if no urime return would be a safe bet and just run it by the doctor as well and see if they have any other suggestions.

    Question on CA Board Approval

    In other words. I am a Canadian RN graduate. I wrote the NCLEX and have applied to the CA BON. A fellow classmate did the exact same degree as me and is registered with the CA BON. I received a letter indicating I was deficient in clinical hours for peds/obstetrics. I took 80 hours of clinical in each of them. My class mate has the exact same amount of hours in them as me and was accepted and licensed by the CA BON. How do I appeal this decisions

    Question on CA Board Approval

    Yes they said I am deficient for clinical hours in Obstetrics and Pediatrics. I did contact my school to get more information to send to the CA board. Does anyone know if Community Clinical counts toward clinical hour requirements for the CA board?

    Thank you. That is exactly what I did. Does anyone know if the CA BON considers Community Clinical toward clinical hours requirement ?

    California Board Approval Question

    Hi. Is anyone familiar with a situation where the Californa Board of Nursing approves someone from your graduating class with the same exact coursework as you but ends up declining you due to some deficiencies? I am sort of in this situation and want some advice. How can I fight back against the CA BON?

  13. Hello Allnurses Community! I found out today that I passed my RN exam. I was born and raised in Canada (Winnipeg) and will be married to a Californian next year. I took the NCLEX-RN exam here in Canada via the Minnesota Board of Nursing. I am now registered with the Minnesota Board of Nursing. I took the NCLEX-RN to avoid taking it later when I move to California. I understand that when I officially move to California, I will have to register for the California board (via endorsement). Has anyone had a issue registering for the California board given they got their licence via another state's BON (Minnesota in my case) while living in Canada? I do not intend to live or go to Minnesota for Nursing.
