So paranoid! LOL

Specializes in EMS, ED, Trauma, CNE, CEN, CPEN, TCRN. Has 12 years experience.

Every time I get something from the Virginia BON, I'm half-convinced that they're yanking my license because they're no longer so EC-friendly. Heh. So today I pulled a ginormous manila envelope from the mailbox, and I saw the return address and thought, "Ruh-roh ..."

Inside is my super-duper official nursing license! I got a small, utilitarian version back in August, but this one looks like a diploma! It's so pretty! :D I'll have to frame it.

Funny timing ... tomorrow is my last shift on orientation. Starting Sunday, I'm the real deal! Yay!!

I'm still waiting for my name to show up on the NY BON site.

Well done, Lunah. Well done!

Go girl! They aren't going to take that license away from you! See--they're giving you a pretty license. That's how much they like you.

In Iowa you get a paper card that you get to put a self-adhesive "lamination" thing on all by yourself. You also get a dinky little certificate looking thing made of paper with a shiny little seal on it. Nothing pretty. Hubby gets the same crud as an RN, so I have a lot to look forward to. We always laugh at the card we get. At least my Oregon license was heavy like a credit card and had some sort of holographic deal to it, but that wasn't my initial licensure. I wonder what other states give their licensees....

You all are lucky with your frameable licenses and laminated credit card type licenses!!

Here in CT you get 3 paper licenses (one for your employeer, but hows about if you have TWO jobs??, one for your wallet and one thats ohhh about a 3 x 5 size or so.) The paper is flimsy and its lessor quality paper than the Social Security cards. YUCK! No seal of any sort just the CT State Seal directly on the paper, nothing raised, nothing laminated.....hhurrppphfff!

Aww it doesn't matter they could print my license on toilet paper and it wouldn't change the fact that I AM a licensed nurse :nurse:

Lunah unleashed! That's just crazy talk! Knock em dead girl. Remember: all bleeding eventually stops. If you didn't document it you didn't do it, so don't document it. Go that way...really fast, if something gets in your way, turn! Double all ET tube and staff doses. Vix vapor rub and/or duct tape will fix anything.

Past that I just make it up as I go along....

I actually was unleashed a day early -- a nurse called out yesterday, so they unceremoniously dumped me off of orientation! :D It went just fine. I've been managing my own load for a while now anyway ... but it's nice to be all official 'n shtuff. ;)

How's the BSN thing working out? Which school did you end up choosing?
