Hi all. Thank you for reading this post. I would greatly appreciate it if anyone can help me with this... I am confused about how NC-SARA affects California residents wanting to go to online out-of-CA NP schools. The definition of NC-SARA says:
State Authorization Reciprocity Agreement (SARA) is an agreement among its member states, districts and U.S. territories that establishes comparable national standards for interstate offering of postsecondary distance-education courses and programs.
California is the only state that does not approve NC-SARA. Does this mean that if a Californian resident enrolls in an online out-of-state NP program, they would not be able to do practicum in CA? That is my understanding but it does not sound right...
I checked the website of CA board of registered nursing. Their approved NP programs are all located in CA. I called them twice today and was put on hold for a total of 3 hours without being able to speak to a person.
Please help enlighten me... Thank you so much!
