    Seriously why did no one tell me?

    I left complex care pediatrics last November. I was home/school care PDN. Made the transition to LTC/sub acute. I love it. Even the higher patient load. People who want to progress. Even Advancing dementia is a non-issue for me with my background & experience. Working in a facility it’s not too hard to leave work at work. No one knows where I live. No one searching me on social media or begging my scheduler to give my personal contact info. Bonus points: non-smoking campus and no heaving smokers on staff so as I work through orientation I’m not abandoned by nurses or aides going out to smoke or vape. The patients/residents cannot smoke so no holding up a Med pass because someone is outside smoking. Is it perfect? No. Am I much happier? Yes. Even with a month and a half of day/evening orientation for a die-hard night shifter

    How long does it take to receive RN license in NJ?

    It's one or the other or you will get your account flagged for duplication. Online is preferred by the NJBoN and you can check status if you file online

    RN volunteering at the border?

    Red Cross uses nurses more in a case management role in relief operations.

    RN volunteering at the border?

    Find a school or medical organization that is going. Random strangers showing up to "help" are rarely welcomed.

    fraud & identity theft

    Alert the board of nursing and the social security administration as well as put a freeze on your credit reports

    LVN with Asscociates of Science in Nursing

    No. 30-unit will always be non-graduate even if you had a bachelors or masters. Why not use the credits for an ASN bridge?

    Nursing Course - LPN

    Many states no. Did you complete clinical and theory in adult med/surg, pediatrics, geriatrics, maternity/women's health, psych-mental health, nutrition, fundamentals?

    lpn ny license to nj

    You aren't eligible for LPN in NJ as you did not graduate from a practical nursing school. It is irrelevant that you obtained a NY LPN license

    Compact law

    NY is not a compact state. If you are a resident of a compact state you can only apply for licensing in your home state. You cannot apply in another compact state and "endorse back".

    Compact law

    No NY is not a compact state. Even if it were if you are not a legal permanent resident of NY therefore if your home state is a NCL state you are not eligible to apply for a license in another compact state.

    Nursing board exam

    Making a fake license will not go well and can bar you from the profession and even work visas. When CGFNS or equivalent goes to verify your nursing license and discovers the fraud it will be reported to both nursing boards/councils. Creating a fake license is fraud

    US citizen, trained in Australia wants to come back to work in US

    Experience cannot be substituted for clinical and didactic at a school of nursing
