Well the brains of the bunch and common sense goes to Smith, for the entire board of nursing . The lone vote the only vote and common sense approach .
So here is a young man, raised in California, came to NAU to go to nursing school. Like any co ed college students they take a break from studies and party. He made one mistake , dui. UH! More than a bad hair day. Expensive, plead guilty, now the after math of it .
Applied to AZ Board of Nursing, which ends up being a bigger mistake than getting a dui. A misdemeanor. OF course Boards do back ground checks after you pay them for a license , finger prints , and he marked it on his application.
At the AZ BON meeting in Nov it was McCormies, the non alcohol , non coffee drinking , magic underwear wearing , and harsh on all nurses except her sister/ brother mormons. McCormies has CONCERNS , (her way of making a mountain out of a mole hill , she has a way or pronouncing it too, ) louder and dragged out CONCERNS !!! . That the new grad is dishonest for some reason she imagined , and will not tell California board about his DUI. Untrusting , is another one of her traits , but I can show you a pile of lies this whack job will try to weasel out of.
So the gentleman who got the degree , made this mistake of applying in AZ , has gotten a bd order, to prove to ms untrusting McCormies that he told the CAlif BON.
IF you have never called Calif BON , it is about as hard to get a person as AZ , but at least you’ll get someone who knows what they are talking about . Back to the board meeting still paying an atty by the hour, Proof handed to Ms untrusting , Carolyn McCormies, who is trying to rule nurses in every state and every country. Then his investigator , who is another piece of work Bonnie , called the Calif BON !! (OMG is AZ board members think they are your prison warden?? WOW.
So now with proof , they do not want to let the nurse by education practice in his profession, not yet or ever in AZ . With good argument by Smith, we are going to give him a consent agreement, to work on a license in a state he longer lives in , will never work in, and has no plans of using , and order a psych evaluation and do what with it ? McCormies has no answer , she just continues her BS , blah blah blah public safety, stomps her feet , raises her voice , until she gets others<co bd members long term who are ‘friends’ helping ‘friends’ to agree with her . Then she says the most crazy thing, “IF THAT IS WHAT HE WANTS “. really ??? and you don’t think your lying your head off when you know he wants to withdraw his license and go to Calif and do what ever they require him to do . Then like a line , from a crazed person in MAD magazine , McCormies says . “How do we know he won’t withdraw his application in Calif and go to another state ” ! NOT kidding , !! Well McCormies how do we know , any future event ? But the most important part is IT IS NON OF YOUR BUSINESS WHAT A NURSE DOES IN OTHER STATES ! you dumb moron ! Smith was the only one who voted against this crazy notion. Then Ridenour actually made this board decision, and told them what to do ! She’ ll deny it and say it was a “Board Decision” . Joke Ridenour, your dir of nursing at the board, said “let’s just cut it clean , and deny “. (NOTHING CLEAN about Ridenours dirty hands ! Nothing ! The blame game is her way ! Next time maybe Smith will demand others see it her way like the childish rants of CAROLYN MCCORMIES . She is a embarrassment to the profession ! Shame on Boyer, Andersen, Gutierrez , Fountain, Ferrigan .
You might not drink (well we know Lori sure does ! ) but you got some serious issues!
DO NOT GET A NURSING LICENSE OR WORK IN ARIZONA AS A NURSE .
