Board Of Nursing 19

Board Of Nursing 19



It seems that every occupation has different criteria that people need to​ follow in​ order to​ work in​ their chosen field .​
Many different occupations require testing in​ order to​ be certified or​ licensed in​ that area .​
In most cases this is​ a​ very good thing because it​ provides for some consistency in​ knowledge amongst the people that enter the occupation .​
It is​ a​ good way to​ measure that the person has learned what they need to​ be in​ that line of​ work.
In some occupations you need to​ be licensed by the state you are working in​ and for other occupations there is​ a​ general examination that is​ accepted in​ all the states .​
My daughters have found that not all states have similar laws when it​ comes to​ the board of​ nursing .​
Both of​ my daughters obtained their nursing degrees from the same university .​
Once they graduated with their degree they contacted the board of​ nursing to​ take their examinations .​
Once they passed the exam they were considered registered nurses .​
They both passed and started working in​ the state we live in .​
My older daughter met a​ young man and got married .​
They needed to​ relocate to​ Texas for his job .​
My daughter contacted the board of​ nursing in​ Texas to​ inquire about taking the nursing exam .​
She was told that as​ long as​ she had proof that she is​ a​ registered nurse she could work in​ nursing in​ Texas .​
She was relieved that she did not have to​ retake the board exam .​
They moved and within a​ month she was working for a​ clinic that was located a​ few miles from the home they were renting.
My other daughter decided that she wanted to​ make some big money and see the country at​ the same time .​
She signed up for the traveling nurse program .​
This is​ for professionals in​ the medical field that are willing to​ go where there is​ a​ shortage of​ staff .​
The pay is​ high and some of​ the locations were appealing to​ my daughter .​
It seemed like a​ great job for a​ single person .​
Once she signed up she found out that not every state accepts the registration from our state .​
Some states did and others required that you took the examination for their particular state .​
She contacted the board of​ nursing and complained about the inconsistency .​
They agreed with her, but explained that at​ this time there is​ not a​ national registry for nurses .​
This is​ something that is​ being worked on .​
Once this would be established a​ nurse can take a​ national examination and work any where in​ the country .​
This seems like it​ will be a​ more organized way of​ helping nurses find work in​ other states.
