I support the petition for rule-making to amend regulation 19VAc90-19-130Section D1.

I support the above petition for rule-making to change the requirement for an applicant from another country to use the designation of "foreign graduate nurse" to the designation of "RN Applicant on nametags or when signing official records. I feel it is discriminatory, in that, the continued use of foreign graduate nurse to undue discriminatory treatment and practice.  We should be moving forward and the equality in the nursing profession should be maintained.
