The average nurse can make between 40-125 thousand a year. From that, state tax gets a least 10,000.00 and some would claim more, but the point here is nursing makes up the largest and most financially prolific profession in the world. Arizona claims better than 70,000 nurses live and work in Arizona. If that figure is confirmed by the AZBN you can forget that. They have dead nurses as active licences. If they claim otherwise they’re lying as usual.
If you are so concerned about doing good business as all your warm & fuzzy newsletter claim you’d be diligent to a fault in keeping nurses working. As the nursing shortage continues to grow the need to promote employment retainers becomes imperative. Instead, nurse retainer ship, is non existent. This evidence can be noted through the costly use of nurse travel agencies which has skyrocketed in recent years. The cost for one experienced nurse is about 1000.00 per shift whose own take home from that is less than half.
Maintaining the mission of the AZBN as the governing body of nursing could not be any further away from what the modern nursing founders had created these agencies for in the first place. Nursing doesn’t need to be governed and monitored by people who hate nursing and nurses. Most have obviously never learned to eat, and they’re judging those who frequently do not have enough time for lunch.
The motive for felonious criminal activity by the AZBN has been such a mystery to determine. The first thought is the AZBN is doing the right thing. Right. Then you’ve got 20 plus nurses who were illegally prosecuted by Beth A. Campbell with all kinds of evidence to conclusively determine the complete process is a violation of more than ethical standards but criminal activity as well. Although it matters little to the adm. that new laws and bills are ignored causing many disruptions in nursing. What is the motive. its GLORY. We are the almighty and are never wrong and we get all the licenses revoked we need to define our roles and we are very important. You’re dangerous criminals is who you really are.
Its bad business what this board is doing and will reflect this in state’s coffers. This page has better than 65,000 views and is responsible for depicting the attorney general’s office and AZBN as lying corrupt bastards. Which they are, bound for Glory. Although Arizona isn’t the only trash heap in Nursing Boards, Its the only one with a well circulated page as this. Working in Arizona as a nurse is way less attractive partly because of the information provided through this page than say, Rhode Island. For every nurse whose license goes south the state tosses away at least 10,000.00 year. Does the governor actually believe his regulatory agencies promote public safety and great job creation is Arizona’s future? I’ve seen Governor’s return letters about the AZBN complaints, you can not take these pecker-heads court. The courts are more corrupt than the Board. The only people who need this Board are the ones who work there. What an incredible waste of tax payers resources.
The perfect crime is possible when law enforcement commits the perfect crime.
