    Nursing @ Ground Zero AZBN 

    If you are considering rejecting probation, counseling or whatever this Board is offering to close your case you can refuse to sign the consent agreement and have your license revoked. That is what they’ll do.  There is no legal due process, and this Board does NOT follow the state laws. Sign this petition and help stop the insanity.

    https://www.thepetitionsite.com/423/443/415/end-all-board-of-nurses-denial-of-civil-rights-and-due-process/

    If there is doubt to the cause of the now present day shortage of nurses maybe the following will help clear the fog on that. There is some degree of exits of nurses directly related to the baby boomers retiring: some degree, but there are other reasons. There has been a major exodus of experienced nurses leaving the bedside as bedside nursing is now dead and considered a profession nearly impossible to do what the training called for. At any given time an expedition through most clinical areas be it critical care, long term or even day surgery you’ll find a majority of nurses tied to a computer cow demanding they satisfy program after program designed by the knee jerk responses of a government and a nursing board, such as the AZBN, who’ve got no idea of the log jams needed to be busted to get by just to get to the bedside. How many ex nurses have gone into a hospital, as a patient, and come out shocked at the care they didn’t get?? I dare you to ask one, a real nurse that is.

    As the numbers of total working nurses dives to record lows the answers to promote patient safety are blocked by the overload of regulations created by people who have little knowledge of what nursing is about.  You walk onto a busy Med/Surg floor and you see nurses saddled to computers and patients about to do swan dives as you walk by.

    So with all this time away from the bedside the suffering goes to the patient, and to the advantage of the immoral nurse who wants to have his way with a vulnerable patient that can not speak. Think back, how is it possible for a nurse to have enough time to impregnate someone without anybody noticing. Simple, he knows precisely the times many other nurses will be wasting time on the computer cow. This is a one time thing?? Better think again.

    Nurses need bedside time to be nurses and promote good care and safety, since they’re not getting that time, and that is what they signed up for, they are leaving nursing. They do not want any part of covering for Mr. Penis. And who plays a major role in creating patient safety protocols?? You got three guesses, the first 2 don’t count. AZBN, that is who.

    Its unusual for most attorneys to refuse to represent a client in a case, and as one attorney said upon refusal, “This board is a monster, a waste of time and money in search of justice.” Wish I could identify that attorney. The AZBN is a well established and powerful criminal organization masquerading as a protecting agency for the public. They DO NOT abide by state laws, and do service for hospitals and powerful physicians needing cover ups. Sharing your story here helps keep these illegal activities in the public eye. There will be no white knight to save you, we recommend anonymously posted stories otherwise the black knight may visit you.

    Joseph Flaherty of the Phoenix New Times asked an experienced nurse their opinion of the AZBN? This is the answer he got. he’s the journalist covering the GC University issues.  Arizona Nursing Board is known throughout the land as a corrupted & captured agency. Typically they take leads from hospitals & physicians to promote a safe haven for themselves; In a now world of the worst health care system in the industrialized world the AZBN will normally blame the nurse, or anybody in the low bid range. Gov. Doucey has publicly reprimanded them many times over recent times. If it wasn’t such a headache I am sure he’d fired them all, but he still may. AZBN does NOT follow state laws.

    I would remind posters that traffic here is high. Think twice before posting facts under your real name.

      How many boards ambush nurses with their staff , security guards , police, attack secretaries, courts, to intimidate and make them out to be dangerous? Like a sorority of young men raping a women, as a group , they think they have no responsibility , they just blend in, with the gang. Well joe did it first, and i wasn’t the only one. Then they are singled out, one at a time are asked questions. What was your role in this? From Preston whispering to a newbie and pointing people out to pit them against that person, to the out of control guard who went the extra mile. Not the first time they starting dropping their fabricated and trumped up rumors, to control the other persons mind. Which seemed pretty easy to do for Preston, as the ear she banged gave looks of immediate disapproval . So sickening to watch someone with a job as important as deciding others career fate could suck it in AND ACT on it. Shame to both of you gossiping wenches. UNPROFESSIONAL CONDUCT BOARD OF NURSING, and STAFF .

      AZ board only ‘acted’ for political reasons . And probably nudging from Gov. saw many posts what is the licensing board doing. When they acted , which if the man is guilty would be considered emergency , the board waiting until their regular meeting , and the man was already in custody and was not getting out until arranged so it was a publicity stunt only. Then the main idiot wrap it up randy quinn, mr disrespectful to women himself. made the statement ” he will never practice nursing in this state again” and of course everyone is relieved and glad . ignorant to facts the moron cannot make those statements, his time on the board is short, and he cannot speak for future board members and he cannot speak for the entire board . a true blue big A hole all around.

      So this board says they are for public service , the only board who renews every four years, one other every 3 . the rest every 2 or annually. Lazy Az . When nurses renew they have to answer questions, actively working , how many hours ? And declare CEU”S . OH but lazy Az does not require them ! We all know that the speeding ticket you can take a class and when anyone does it makes them renew their privilege to drive and are more careful. When you work as a traveler every time you take an assignment you are required to take med tests skills tests , rcardiac strips (for every dept even ob ) a few days worth of testing. It refreshes your memory and keep you up to date and renew things learned back in the day. But az is so lazy and unorganized , you can skate along for 4 years and not have any questions , not have any evaluations, any renewal to fill out, if someone did not report an arrest this is when they find it. AZ board of nursing is NOT protecting anyone but their paychecks, retirement and jobs, make sure they take a lunch , come in to the office or not . get paid to sit in court as a lying witness. They themselves are not required to do any CEU;s and it SHOWS !!

You are letting this evil agency off the hook. the set up is strange . a crooked judge , then it goes back to the board who are suppose to be a jury of your peers , they are not.

      I ‘d like to add to your tips for new victims of this evil board of nursing az. If you ever get a complaint and get a letter of no concern or dismiss , get the h*ll out of dodge . Do not ever work another day in AZ . Move . Some states actually have mature professional boards.
      Another thing is do not ever contact this corrupt board of nursing on the phone , ever . Send emails , if they don’t answer send to a second person. Keep the emails and record . They tend to lie A LOT , twist things around do not trust them to twist around your conversation . Misquote , no it is deliberate. A big game , a big ha ha.

      IF anyone thinks what this corrupt board of nursing and staff write in their summary on nurses is a work of non fiction , you need to talk to the number of nurses who will beg to differ.
      A real sick minded devilish one. Sit there and read comments pick out ones you can use partial sentences, leave out anything that shows the nurse did right . Just write comments , distort facts eliminate facts, then submit to the corrupt judge who is willing to sign what ever the corrupt board wants, after all it is the board who is paying them and the DA $75 hour. Together they aren’t worth 2 cents !

      Lies rolled right off the tongue of the lying board members . There are only so many instances where they CAN obtain medical records, and when they use this sneeky tactic , it is probably not one of them.

      You know this corrupt board of nursing has counselors in outlying areas , group meetings. Now when i look up who will be the counselor ; her name is Tina Snow. imagine that , think SNOWflake, FLAKE, SNOWLOW , and CHAD SNOW all r/t by a similar thread. If that is not some crazy sh*t in itself , she is marriage and family counselor. TOTALLY not qualified but neither is Randy Quinn, so their you go ! But hey with a last name like Snow she most likely will do what ever the AZ bd wants. No wonder a nurse from Yuma “shooter ” made it through her probation !! A political name on the legislature (before he did his crazy stuff ) and a relative . Make sure she keeps her license. Still think this board is about public safety ?? Or taking care of ‘friends’ with strange beliefs? Put nothing past this corrupt AZ board of nursing and staff !

      The AZ Corrupt board of nursing, doesn’t have the money to replace retired investigators , my my. sad isn’t it. when every two months for the board meetings you see some of the investigators have no cases one or two. So for 8 weeks, 40 hours a week, this is all they do ! Very surprised Ridenour hasn’t said hey lets change the renewal date (AGAIN ) remember the license renewed in June and this corrupt board ran out of money and changed it with noone’s input to April ! Or they would operate in the red. Ridenour has a hard time balancing her budget, but when you put an attorney on staff kinda eats up the money. Why was a full time atty needed by a Board of Nursing Agency, ? Are they doing things they should not be doing ? hmmm, Is the atty doing things she should not be doing ? Something to think about.

      Here is a Bill that needs to be written ,pull AZ out of the dark ages. IF not Bill then union is the only answer !
      FOURTEEN YEARS OLD: Is Patient Safety Reporting and Non Retaliatory Policies: Article 11/ARS36-450 relevant in 2017???

      The Arizona Nurses Association recently sent out a newsletter to thousands of nurses all over the state, and normally I wouldnt care. But I take exception with a section of this newsletter entitled “Executive Director’s Report: Nurses+Policy=Healthy Arizonans.” Veteran nurse Robin Schaeffer, the author of this piece, is also the Executive Director of the organization. In this article she briefly discusses the importance of nurses taking part in the legislative process to improve practice issues that affect our profession and patient care all over the state. She asked a pretty good question too: How many of you consider advocating for our profession and the health of the state of Arizona a part of your skill set as nurses?

      That’s an easy answer, based on my own experience trying to get nurses to come forward and engage without being scared to death to do so, worried that they will be targeted as a troublemaker, a changer, a nurse who challenges the status quo instead of just going with the flow. Because lets face it, THAT IS, and ALWAYS WILL BE a major barrier to improved participation in the legislative process —- in a right to work state, nurses have told me time and again they dont wish to be identified by coworkers who may start rumors or be targeted in their workplaces if they are caught trying to engage other nurses in change.

      I cant stay I blame them. Now, on to what I perceive to be some pretty important points: Leading by example. Being forthright. Providing the most accurate information to our state’s nurse workforce so that they feel confident that they are up to date with policy that affects their everyday practice. After all, the AZNA newsletters are the closest a majority of them will ever come to the State Capitol or to one of the State Legislators. So, they trust that the information is timely, relevant, and reliable. They trust that they can feel confident in the information provided to them as they go about their day.

      That being said, I took note of a glaring problem in Robin Schaeffer’s piece. She takes a retrospective look at what the Arizona Nurses Association has “accomplished” for the nursing workforce and for patient care, the “wins” if you will. The “home runs.” The big advancements the AZNA has made. While its always great to celebrate a battle won, those moments we take a giant leap forward by improving our patient care environments or in advocating for our profession—its also important to make sure the nursing workforce is not misled in anyway and provided information that gives them a false sense of confidence, comfort, or security.

      My problem lies with the bold heading titled: “Whistleblower Protection For Nurses.” In this part of the article Robin champions the efforts of the AZNA: “Arizona nurses spoke out and were successful in passing the Patient Safety Reporting and Non Retaliatory Policies Act….some refer to it as the whistleblower protection bill.”

      THIS is grossly misleading. The “Act” Robin Refers to in the article is a vague three paragraphs of legal wording (also known as ARS 36450) that do ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to protect nurses from retaliation for coming forward to report patient safety concerns or medical/surgical error…..FURTHERMORE—there is not a single place the word “whistleblower” is specifically defined, nor is the term used within the three paragraphs. How one can refer to it as a whistleblower protection bill without even using the term in the title or in the body of the statutes is perplexing…..this is a major misstep, because it is giving nurses false information.

      Robin also floats in one of those inspirational nursing quotes we see everywhere on social media but rarely have the time, or support, to act on: “A wise nurse once said that unless we are making progress in our nursing every year, every month, every week….Take my word for it, we are going backward.”

      Wellllllll. since we are talking about making progress in the profession and being diligent in making strides–perhaps it would behoove us to note that the statutes Robin is referring to, ARS 36450, was initially endorsed by the Arizona Nurses Association and passed by the state legislature in 2003, 14 YEARS AGO. (September 18, 2003) The healthcare system has changed a whole lot since then, the issues affecting our practice have changed even more. And like cancer spreads quickly, over the past few years nurses all over the country have been increasingly retaliated against for reporting patient safety violations and medical/surgical errors. Many nurses have experienced this very pitfall in Arizona too. If we are to be making progress shouldn’t we be re examining and consider the revision of legislation that was sponsored and passed 14 YEARS AGO?

      We’ve all heard the saying “keep your eyes on the prize.” We’ve all gotten excited about hurrying to that finish line (whatever that may be for you) so we can say “we did it!” Unfortunately, on the way to that finish line we may forget to do some important stuff before we get there…..like, tie our shoes so we don’t trip and fall. In my opinion, as a former bedside nurse,…… a graduate level nursing education behind me, it appears that the AZNA got excited about the title of the “ACT” and didn’t completely stop to read and UNDERSTAND that the words within the ACT do nothing to protect nurses and patients”

      ARS36450 DOES NOT: Clearly define who and what a whistleblower is.

      ARS36450 DOES NOT: Clearly define who gets to make the decision about who a whistleblower is or is not.

      ARS 36450 DOES NOT: Hold anyone, or any healthcare agency/entity legally accountable (penalties) for retaliating against a healthcare worker/nurse whistleblower

      ARS6450 DOES NOT: Define types of retaliation.

      ARS36450 DOES NOT: Specifically define types of reporting that are covered by statutes

      ARS36450 DOES NOT: Provide a specific timeline that is inclusive of when the report is made, how long the healthcare agency has to address the problem, and the time period that a whistleblower cannot be retaliated against for reprting.

      ARS26450 DOES NOT: FORCE any healthcare agency/entity to adhere to the “anti retaliation policy” the state of Arizona “requests” them to…. “Each healthcare institution licensed pursuant to this chapter shall adopt a policy that prohibits retaliatory against a health professional who makes a good faith report…”

      ARS36450 DOES NOT: Specify any monetary penalties for not enforcing their own policies. In fact—-private healthcare corporations DO NOT, DO. NOT. HAVE TO follow their own non retaliation policy. They may set one in place that looks legit, but in reality, they do not have to enforce a policy such as this if they do not wish to do so. And the state cannot do a thing about it because there is no law saying they have to.

      Our nursing workforce, our chronically short nursing workforce…..the students who will soon be nurses……DESERVE TO BE PROPERLY INFORMED of what they are protected from and what they are not protected from because providing misleading information creates a lax culture that stagnates in the status quo, it hinders the process of asking “what can we be doing better?” “What do we need to change?” If leadership figures within our profession publish a piece that says something has been done, then point to a link where nurses can read it and examine it themselves instead of leaving readers assuming they are legally protected from the worst case scenario: losing their licenses, identities, and livelihoods doing what they took an oath to do on graduation day: The right thing.

      So it comes down to TWO FACTS: THERE IS NO NURSE WHISTLEBLOWER “BILL” AND THERE IS NO “PROTECTION” FOR NURSES IN THIS STATE WHO DECIDE TO REPORT MEDICAL OR SURGICAL ERRORS AND DEATHS IN THIS STATE.

      Returning to the title of Robin’s article: NURSES+POLICY= HEALTHY ARIZONANS? Perhaps….. but only if nurses feel SAFE and PROTECTED enough to come out and engage in creating the policy that has the potential to make a “Healthier Arizona.”

      If youre a registered nurse in Arizona, there is no better time to start learning how to advocate for your profession and your patients than NOW.

      Its simple: When you protect your profession your protect your patients.

    Sleeping Vendettas AZBN 

    Because Nurses need to stand together in solidarity. Because we are held to standards that facilities are not. Because Everyone is entitled to Due Process!

    https://www.thepetitionsite.com/423/443/415/end-all-board-of-nurses-denial-of-civil-rights-and-due-process/

    A large number of experienced nurses have erroneously &/or excessively been disciplined by the AZBN. Many have fallen for the specific reasons created by the board and plaintiffs; such as witnesses for the administration who are in fact perjurious if not imposters themselves, neurologicallly compromised witnesses who could not even remember the name of the nurse they were testifying against, a psychologist who you wouldn’t dare light a match near as you know they’d catch fire, ex defunct public servants whose own careers look like swiss cheese, hospital administrators putting cotton in the public’s ears as the sound of the whistle is too loud, on and on and on. Many of these nurses of experience are older and have children themselves who perhaps are also nurses and their parents pain is their pain. They know and remember that indelible mark of pain in their hearts as some clearly remember the suicide deaths of their mothers as miserable and unjust actions caused by the AZBN. The children grow. Many know the truth which is often secluded and surrounded by the shear strength for the human desire to go on. They grow and remember who did what and who said what. They work the hospitals and health care facilities as did their parents; the vendetta lingers until that special day when one of their patients has a name they will never forget. That patient has no idea the nurse is the ghost from the past. That nurse knows that retired nurse from the past. It isn’t something the younger nurse had planned, ever, its just life is risk and random. Do we know how much air it takes as a bolus. No, but somebody is about to find out. How many vendettas are floating in the hearts of present day nurses?

    Not really sure when AZBN brought the electric chair back to Florence; Everything has its fallout.

      A NP loses her license for not writing prescriptions to a patient they have never assessed . *sshole Sunita sitting there carrying on about she should have ‘bridged ” the medication. Like she has a fking clue. Let her father write RX for someone he has never seen. Redundant statements over and over in OAh, judges allowing the state to do what ever they want , a Dr on the phone repeating himself over and over , wonder what drug he is on. The Jewish center in the same building as the corrupt bon. A pattern of turning NP into the BON, who would work there ?? . The entire bottom line stems from Oregon, AZ cleaned up their cases for them , the connection is clearer now. Same creeps in Oregon, even paid a personal visit . wicked woman workin it together. Guess who else has a kid now ? SUNITA , they grow up so fast,

      As uncomfortable as this possibility is it is dripping with reality. Being a nurse it would be easy to flush a line with a blast of air that upon autopsy would reveal some kind of respiratory/cardiac insult but would doubt it could alert foul play. kind of makes one wonder if it hasn’t already taken place somewhere. Why would it be such an outstanding evfent in view of the current Arizona known atrocities circulating around the world ??

      A NURSE’S Story

      in reply to corrupt board of nursing arizona , AZBN, ” you would like my attorney she thinks they are crooks too and is very vocal about it. Long story short. I had a huge life changing event and became depressed and suicidal. Sought treatment and was hospitalized. Took myself out of the profession until my therapist thought I could return. I notified the BON, and they decided a witch hunt was in order. Decided I needed 3 years of monitoring, 24 UAs a year even though their own testing showed no issue with substance abuse. I just said I was doing everything right and would fight it. The week before trial they dropped the entire case. I really wanted to fight it because I had done nothing wrong. But they backed out. I even had the superintendent of the State Mental hospital ready to testify that I was completely fine. ”

      This has been going on folks , a medical provider cannot and should not ever divulge information about themselves to a corrupt board of nursing ! This board who said, Uh hey folks we don’t have a case here, did the smart thing and dropped it. unlike AZ , not so smart. Of course the above case is not in a mostly mormon state, the ones who think they know it all and are (laughable ) think they are the only ‘truth” . and can judge others by their strange ways. This needs to stop and blessings she got a lawyer who is not afraid to tell the boards what they think of them ! STOP SIGNING THOSE CONSENT AGREEMENTS!!
      Guess the board all of a sudden had a vision that she was not a danger to anyone after all ! Amazing how that horsesh*t works isn’t it ?

      generally people think it is very strange how this crazy AZ Bd has been working their cases , so unorganized and all over the place. First time that I have been asked “who is prosecuting this stuff ” . Yea it is strange a Atty General office is prosecuting nurses ,like they are criminals. When the people running the office have so much baggage. The main ones who do the prosecuting of nurses , (of course anyone asks what do you do, they are not going to say THAT ! The TRUTH. Is not part of their vocabulary . SUNITA KRISHNA ELIZABETH CAMPBELL. a couple of ‘mommy dearest” . Starred by a sociopathic sick mother . And then the real mother Fkr is EMMA MAMALUY . Notice how she raises her voice to that “im just a sweet little innocent and can’t figure out why on earth anyone would say that about me ” do not trust these snakes, and do not think they don’t enjoy making someone else’s life harder. Enjoy getting nurses fired on trumped up drama .

        Although many are tuned up to Bd behaviors you mention, this case isn’t one of them. Errors? Not sure what the mitigating circumstances are her defense counsel mentions but it would have to be a fault of hospital. Just can not imagine what that would be?? But she intended to give versed, therefore a monitor is mandatory. She left the pt. alone unmonitored. Her best deal is to take neglectable wrongful death and do the jail time which I think she deserves to show all her supporters that hiding last dose given in the trash is unacceptable.

      Well chalk one up for hair brain randy (QUINN) , stupid comments at board meetings. yep , well reviewed , a defense lawyers night mare for sure. Emergency suspend after a year . LOL . Campbell wasn’t to comfortable with her ‘usual ‘ judges who ‘take care of her’ . A stinky fish out of water for sure. She even knew better than to do her usual. We did not see any of the usual alj’s behavior, Slamming the respondent, yelling, huge sighs , eye rolling, reprimand them , stick up for the witness they are trying to ask questions, scold them until they stop asking questions, make the record biased they’ll never win an appeal. ANd if you really want to tick off this certain alj , ask the board’s witness if she got sued for killing a patient. OWE she did not like that , one bit. Yep take it out of dntn and in front of a judge who has no idea how this chosen one gets her way , (as long as she writes ‘for marc Brnovich” by her nobody name . ) even she know’s she has got to put that penis’s name on there or remind them who you work for or lose on your own stupidity. Constant objections didn’t even work. mostly just intentional interruptions ! what ever happened to John Tellier who was suppose to watch this “snotty to nurses on the stand b*tch”. You remember that hyena , at the board meetings a real nut job. 4 people paid to sit in court all day and listen to Randy’s stupid comments at the board, and their are MANY stupid comments , mouth never stops , and what comes out is just babble.

      look at this board of nuts, you got the mix up per law, 2 lpns , I think when they called for lpns they wanted people who actually work the bedside , give meds assessments The two do not , case mgrs in nursing homes. might as well have all public members . NP’ s who’s working ? who is seeing patients of 4 of them maybe 1 ! part time. what person is on the board that works a med surg, cardiac floor, er even is a front line person working in bedside nursing. not some glorified preceptor., political peds person, spending all day with new grads. The CRNA, who got his buddy Harris to change the statue to let him be on a board, hasn’t a clue, when you look at the number of CRNA, he represents less than <6 % of all nurses. sickening . But he sure loves getting the hard working floor nurses to bow in front of him where he can play bishop .Ducey just appoints whoever Ridenour says, who scouts out neighbors in PV to join who last maybe a year , during that time are no shows. the token has the right thoughts but backs down, every time. Chicken. Although Dale, certainly swore to 'dedicated" to do it . Now SMith with be president and GCu grads will hail, do for them what Harell did while that old bag with old fashion ideas did . obedient hag good bye to that one ! UH!

      One of the boards favorite name labeling on anyone they want to shame and blame is of course unprofessional. they use it on Drs too, “Today I came across a blog post you wrote entitled, ‘Words that Blame Doctors.’ I saw this comment (see screenshot) about the use of the word, ‘Unprofessional.’ I too have been shamed for actions considered to be unprofessional and threatened with probation, which never happened, but you get the idea.”
      Seems to be a pattern here, and in more than one profession , oh but wait is nursing a profession? or is it a job ? Any time they want to control you, they say’ that is unprofessional ” . Take the psych babble investigator at the az board nursing who told a NP , “do not talk about any of this with anyone except a lawyer, it is unprofessional ” HAHA. Can they stop you from talking about your case? Are you going to obey these liars ? Sure attys tell you not to talk about an accident you were in, or details if something happened at work , someone got hurt. But discussing how the board nursing operates ? OH no , you can talk about it. ! Not every nurse has the money to hire a lawyer. While they are going through crazy times with this crazier board , and its employees . Do not let them tell you , that you cannot talk about it or even write about it . They would love it if no one wrote about them !! IT is EXPOSE the corruption time and they will have to live with what they do .

      I love that you said that, we need a column to expose this corrupt state agency, called “bag of tricks of the board and their investigators ” With no training , Ridenour brings in the swampiest low lives to trash you and your reputation and license.
      Here is one . When you go to the meeting to talk to the investigator. IF YOU WANT TO < THIS IS NOT MANDATORY. They will tell you come alone and you cannot bring anyone except a lawyer. My advise do not meet with them , or do not answer any questions. Go and find out what they have . When you walk in , there are two , one is the investigator the other is a bully . Now after your fake hand shakes they will run to grab a chair, this is because of the camera set up on you. They want YOU to sit in a certain spot. State very little . They want you to talk , in court they will say the investigator said this and you said that , and then the lying investigator brings the bully to testify what THEY SAID IS TRUE ! really ! both are liars. They will write up the 'report ' for the board in words that you cannot recognize , a 'story ' book full of lies by liars. You will get a copy if you file in court and better be UNredacted.

      Ok 2nd trick illegal activity of this board. is to get nurses cna np to sign a consent agreement “if you want to keep your license’ they make it sound as if, you sign up for 1 year of probation it is over. NOTHING is farther from the truth. Unless you are in a private //silenced program such as cando and can find a place to hire you. You will not find work . This board is partial to druggies thieves and deceiving , they seem to identify with them . So the bd votes when you go off probation , but they will call you a liar, with no evidence to support that cause you know only they know ‘the truth’ , (sarcasm , they lie like rugs ) they can add skills eval at your expense , dont do it lose license but do it lose anyways and now they have ‘proof ‘ you are incompetent. ( what they did not tell you is that no one has passed skills test. ) they took a nurse of 34 yrs license anyways. They can re order psych evals (az one of FEW states that the accused pays for psych evals. ) so why is the board out of money ?? look at the savings there ! very pricey , It is usually wrap it up randy the dork who comes up with this BS!

      Tip # 3 (i’ll take this one !!) always fight you case if you did nothing wrong. The board loves to jump around to subjects that have nothing to do with nothing. Just twisted statements . The board knows they are lies but prints them anyways. Fight all the way, you can do it. It is about Justice for all , and standing up for everyone’s rights . No agency should be able to make up lies and put nonsense on the internet. A really big lie when they see you have proven your case and they do not have a case is to talk you into signing a ‘small fine. which is the same as “a speeding ticket”. You didnt speed but to put it to bed you sign to get rid of these evil witch hunters out of your life. Then you go to apply for a job since they got you fired , again, and it says “have you ever had a nursing board complaint ” you answer yes, the facility requests what it is about and the Board sends them the entire pack of lies ! big mistake signing , they can keep it all in the file against YOU but you cannot sue them . ! that is not an agreement , that is dictator ship !

      WARNING TO ALL NURSES WHO ARE ACTIVELY PRACTICING IN ARIZONA OR CONSIDERING IT!

      The ARIZONA BOARD OF NURSING is not your friend. Operating essentially without government, judicial, media or public oversight, the AZBN can destroy your nursing career and finances instantly They on the other hand, will suffer no ill consequences for any intentional or unintentional illegal or unconstitutional action or decision they make, no matter how egregious or devastating it might be to the nurse , their family and patients. And do not think AZNA will help .

      The AZBN purposely performs incompetent investigations, presents and utilizes unqualified physicians/ board investigators as “expert” witnesses, ignores and gives no response to your lawyer’s letters and requests, withholds pertinent records for years, encourages and allows the use of perjury, misuses ’emergency ” encourages and allows the use of hearsay , denies cross examination of supposed witnesses who aren’t even available by phone to testify and answer questions, denies Discovery, colludes privately with the Administrative Law Judges through their point of contact after a hearing . ALJ will raise their voices , flail their arms, roll their eyes, reprimand , scold one party to discourage them talking and making the record fair. The list is endless. The AZBN and their legal muscle, AAG Sunita Krishna Cairo , Assistant Attorney General (AAG) Elisabeth A Campbell , do all this “openly” knowing there will be no legal or legislative repercussions regarding their tyrannical behaviors .
