Amendment to Regulation18Vac90-19-130 Section DI

Foreign graduate nurses must not be treated differently in the Commonwealth of Virginia. Use of " Foreign nurse graduate applicant on name tags and signatures on official records  will be confusing to some patients and may be perceived by the patients as incompetent nurses.  Such perception may impede a good nurse patient relationship and trust.

I respectfully ask the Board of Nursing to change the designation to" RN Applicant".

Thank you.
