    Tale of The Whole Dance AZBN 

    A real long time ago I was sitting in a Navy base classroom for future hospitalcorpsmen and drawing human anatomy pictures for our instructor, Lcdr Parker, a former WW 2 surgical nurse. She employed me as she saw my doodles in class and wanted me to depict her interpretations of battlefield wounds and their repair which in those days could be put on an over head and exploded on a screen so the class of future hospitalcorpsmen got a good idea what battlefield injuries looked like. I would honor her request and use pencil and pastels to match human tissue. She liked my work and said it did not take me forever to do it. Parker never smiled. One day, after class,  I was busy drawing and she approached me with a round piece of clay about the size of a baseball. She handed it to me and said, “I want you to squeeze this clay after each of the the words I tell you to say.” OK “Love,” I squeezed the clay, “Compassion” I squeezed the clay, “Honesty” I squeezed the clay, “Courage” I squeezed the clay. She then asked me to hand over the clay, “The clay is now molded with the four most important factors Navy corpsmen must have to be  the best corpsman they can be, you molded it and remember the most important person in Navy medicine is the corpsmen who holds these character strengths.

    I still have that piece of clay. The other day I was outside and picked up a rock about the size of a baseball and I could not mold it. I allowed my mind to consider it the for profit health care system and the agencies, and the lawyers, and the Attorney General who represented it. I knew it was Satan as the evidence was overwhelming and I could not change that rock, not a new revelation for me. However, I always presented myself as an honest person to these people, AZBN, Adm Law court, Attorney General only to find I was constantly dancing to their music of corruption. Like duress and under the gun to be approved by them so I could go back to work as nurse. The real truth was never heard, but I still can hear the music. The dance is not over.

      Patients who come in for scheduled surgery, are the best to work with, they know ahead of time that they will have therapy and participate. One day , assigned a patient a man . As an on call temp staff you will get the patients who no one else wants or has the family from hell. This patient was the latter, i mean report sounded like the nurse hated him, everyone did, the physical therapy hated him, and they only have him for 30 mins! The CNA’s didn’t want to go in his room. “he won’t do anything we ask and wont do therapy refuses baths”.
      I have had patients before , I’ve tried waltzing with …only to find out they didn’t even want to dance! And maybe that was him. Blocking out what I was told and evaluate the situation .
      So ok, different approach. Not going to ask him to do a thing, just talked , he was from NY. He finally opened up , everyone of his friends were killed in 911, family members, he had no one. Moved to try to heal, he was depressed with a capitol D . What kind of work did he do ?, sometimes I can relate something to that . He went on that he was in show business, movies and he was the cop on a funny popular show, I thought he was kidding, he repeated his lines , I knew he wasn’t kidding. I asked him if he had an old picture, he did. Wow. very popular. When I informed the other team members who he was you couldn’t keep them out of his room . He was more alive more animated, he got up out of bed and participated. I don’t know what ever became of him, but I feel this is what separates me from the new grads who call patients lazy stinking pigs , and want to know what day we get paid on. This is what separates me from the nursing board and employees, and that I am proud of.

      Several patients wrote in on my behalf. I brought in a huge poster framed with all my nursing accomplishments to prove I was not an incompetent nurse ( they told me that was not necessary and wouldn’t even look at it)…none of the false allegations against me were ever found even remotely true, but because the allegations were brought, the azbon felt it was their duty to keep looking, searching, and investigating until they could find something/anything to use against me…and the something had nothing to do with giving care, or even being a nurse, instead a personal problem that just happened to be playing out in my life at the same time. Then because of the existence of a non healthcare issue…I must need a psych evaluation …oh by a crooked psychologist on the board’s list…that charged me 500 dollars and churned out a 14 page report full of errors and omissions…followed by a lengthy list of unachievable steps needed to be completed in order to even be worthy of reconsideration for licensure…

      They know who they are, what they did …shame on them…what comes around goes around…all I can say

      Oh yes sounds very familiar . Only say bad things about the nurse , never acknowledge anything good. Smear contest. They do not want to hear one word of your accomplishments . (although Mccormies plays that little game , knock them down and out but then always leave them with a ‘little’ positive note ) she fools no one. She needs a big dose of her own advise. ! Just focus on the lies. Oh and the psych list , is basically a SHIT LIST of psychs who are narcissistic mentally deranged lazy quacks . I only hope that they get what is coming to them .

      They are what is called the invalidator’s , An invalidator will pick out the qualities about yourself that are the most important to you and then tear them apart. Listening to hear you say something you don’t like about yourself to throw it in your face later. If you confront them they will say , how silly of you. Or comments that crazed Randy Quinn, ‘we’ll order you a psych eval and get you back on the next meeting and ‘get you taken care of’. (sounding as if the moron is doing you a favor ! ) . It is sad to see this psychopath , saying to young nurses, “we’ll get you taken care of “. and them THANKING THEM. ! While he knows fully well he is fking up their entire careers, financial sacrifice over some nut some , using psych to have their input , when they KNOW their input is never good for nurses ! In short , the invalidator will do what ever is necessary to control you. They are control-crazy, and any time they perceive themselves not in control , they will be scared. Just hiring an attorney they perceive as a threat. How dare you not ‘trust ” them and bring in interference.

      They will attack you demand meetings , gather info, then not hear from them forever , then all of a sudden you are peppered with legal papers , demands all shortly before the board meeting to give you as little time as they can.< and their little trick when they are really looking to go for the jugular , run another back ground check , just before the meeting . (isn't that right sneaky CAROLYN McCormies , like's to encourage the investigators to do !) . Keep you in constant state of uncertainty . Rarely gives you an answer just vagueness. Make you feel unsure , uncertain for long periods of time , they know hanging on you is wearing you down to cave on signing those 'release papers " for THEM ; to let them off the hook. ALways written for their benefit, no one negotiates them , and the board never votes against "they have a signed consent agreement ". Why, it is all written to their benefit and they can ADD TO THE DEMANDS , and have you jumping hoops forever . Wearing you out financially with false promise of getting your license back , and getting on with your life. Not happening. They have a dr jekyl Dr hyde personality type . Becoming understanding , gaining your trust , then one swift blow they start with criticism, insinuations, and suppressed rage . While the target , thinks , what happened ? But will say to you , what happened? , you were doing so well. ! (it was not you who went off it was them in a calculated underhanded tactic). The members of the board of nursing and employees have to either really psych themselves out into being a different person, have multiple personalities , or they are just so sociopathic in their own psychy it is natural for them to play the games they do .

        it took a lot of us to realize that they’re not the average working nurse whose personality does not fall within the parameters that defines abnormal. Its also this Bd’s culture as well. Not all nursing boards are like this. Leaving the state is the best option. But I want the last waltz first.

      Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.”
      Martin Luther King, Jr.
      Nurses are not suppose to be proving themselves against untrue allegations. The DA is suppose to get off their lazy butts and prove their lies, but they never do , just statements with no proof . Criminals have more rights. Sunset won’t do a thing , the current crooked senate / legislature won’t either. Finding a judge who is fair / non biased is only way . In Az you have to get past the evil mormon’s who infiltrated the government roles to control everyone with their weird notions.

      How unimaginable it is that there are nurses sidelined from duty unjustly that could well have been very helpful assets to Arizonans during this covid 19 war. Perhaps this is part of the big guy’s plan…eradication of this mormon filth while we remain as spectators safe from all of it watching justice unfold. Either way, be assured justice will be served … it’s not a matter of if…instead, matters of how and when. In the meantime stay safe and keep spreading the word to nurses across this nation to avoid the evil that lurks in Arizona and to avoid nursing in Arizona until the house (azbon and all the other political gangbangers holding government positions) is cleaned out.

      Wouldn’t that be a hoot if the Gov demanded that any one who hold a nursing license be mandated to work in the ER, and bedside for 1 shift a week ! OMG ! Talk about rubbing their noses in the cat shit HAHA. Can’t you see, Ridenour , lol !! all complaints on her, she wipes out her DIRECTOR badge, when a urinal full of piss is thrown at her . And Robin Schaefer, putting on scrub , not that dorky lab coat like little pretender she is , and getting “get me my pain med bitch I ‘ve had my call light on for an hour ” . the ‘satisfaction scores would plummet . Patients would be requesting a new nurse, families would say where the hell did you find her ! Is she is new grad ? Show them your director badge again, HAHA, then bring in the rest of the incompetent crew. Dahn, Mand, Malloch, A riot , then when someone who knows them and how worthless they are in every aspect of life, demands keep her the fk out of my room . Patient states “i’d rather get corona virus than what is going on in that head of hers ” one sick mother there ” !

      Yes this is what is happening , as one nurse puts it so true .”” this profession in general won’t stand up. “I need my job, I have bills to pay.” Honestly if this profession were 80% male, life would be different and better. Bc men are far more likely to stand up for themselves and to stand with others. I took a stand at my former hospital when patient safety was jeopardized. I was retaliated against and humiliated. Ultimately I quit and sued. How many of my fellow nurses stood up with me? Not a single one. But how many came to me privately to voice their support and encouragement, only to end it with, “I wish I could say something but I’m the breadwinner. I wish I could be as vocal as you but I need to pay my bills.” Literally all of them. Meanwhile, I’m over here with five kids a mortgage and bills to pay, too. But I stood up for what was right and it cost me. The biggest lesson I learned is that the vast majority of nurses are cowards.
      Kudos ! stand up for what is right !

      Az is not a good state to work in. If this happened in AZ, the hospital would fire you, then turn you into the corrupt board of nursing, who will order a psych evaluation by their sociopathic , greedy psychs, then order probation then revoke the license . Think this doesn’t happen ?? THINK again ! (maybe a full blow up of this article ) She spoke up she must be punished, silence her , dunking tank is still alive and well in AZ the back wards state , punitive for nurses , and detrimental for women .

      A great post by a np who has been stripped of their license by the corrupt board of nursing, when asked to go back to work in her home state, her honest reply.
      “As a competent, caring and experienced nurse , I would volunteer my services during this worldwide health crisis. But, if I did, I’d be breaking the law. I am but one of hundreds across the country , who would do the same but for licensing boards that have stripped us of our ability to practice nursing based on false accusations of professional incompetence. It is the irresponsible Arizona nursing board. not us dedicated practitioners, who are the imminent threat to public health and safety during this deadly pandemic.”

      Right on. I live in Ohio and even out here I (and several of my colleagues and peers) have heard about this horrible nursing board and have (and will continue) to spread the word to all the nurses we can reach about “NEVER PRACTICE NURSING IN ARIZONA “…Trust me the word is out and spreading quickly….I’m surprised nobody in Arizona has looked into why they can’t attract nurses or pay enough to get them there…

      In the face of the stress and disillusionment that our world is experiencing because of this coronavirus pandemic, and the rampant corruption with the Arizona board of nursing violating civil and due process rights of nurses every day, life may seem out of step with the divine plan. But even when things seem to go terribly wrong, God can and will turn them around. He is in charge!

      “And we know [with great confidence] that God [who is deeply concerned about us] causes all things to work together [as a plan] for good for those who love God, to those who are called according to His plan and purpose.” (the Bible, Romans 8:28, AMP)

      Here is what I believe the Lord wants to communicate to you today…

      Nurses, I know the plans I have for you. They are plans for good and not for disaster. I give you a future and a hope (see Jeremiah 29:11, NLT). Sometimes it’s difficult for you to understand what’s happening to you and around you, but know this…all things work together for your good. Because all things are subject to Me (see Hebrews 2:8). The times are in My hand. And you are also in My hand (see Psalm 95:4). I am the Rock of Ages (see Isaiah 26:4), and I protect you in the midst of My presence (see Exodus 33:22).

      Violated nurses,

      I know that you love Me. I love you all too. I loved you before the foundation of the world. I demonstrated My love to all of you by giving My life on the cross for you. And I will always love all of you. You are never alone. I am with you until the end of the age (see Matthew 28:20). I haven’t left you an orphan (see John 14:18). My Holy Spirit lives in you and leads you one day after another. Expect to see Me act in your life in a surprising way. Prepare to see your situation suddenly turn around because I am able to change the bad into good.

      Trust Me. I cause everything to work together for your good. Even when things seem to turn the wrong direction, I can and will turn them around. My plan for your life is kind and full of blessings. And remember that the calling I placed on your life is irrevocable! (see Romans 11:29) Be at peace! I’m coming even now! (see Joshua 5:14)”

      I invite you to once again read and take a special time today to meditate on this verse: “And we know [with great confidence] that God [who is deeply concerned about us] causes all things to work together [as a plan] for good for those who love God, to those who are called according to His plan and purpose.” (Romans 8:28, AMP)

      Be encouraged and greatly blessed,

      This is what is going on in the hospitals. ! AZNA dir hasn’t a clue, probably using her stand up computer cause she sits on her best side too long, AZBON , they won’t darken the inside of a hospital when times are tough, oh no. so the schools and the hospitals no worry, it’s like a restaurant you wont see the health dept for a long time. While nurses (who are members of the public ) are putting their lives on the line , literally . And believe me this nurse can put things into perspective .
      I need to rant and this feels like a safe venue. I can lose my job if I don’t do all of the required Education every year. I cannot come to work if my BLS or ACLS is expired. I get my privileges revoked if I am late for a particular privacy education. TJC will crack on me if I have an uncovered cup in my Nursing area, a split in my chair, lotion outside my locker, trim falling off counters, rain spots on the ceiling, but nurses are wearing garbage bags for isolation, nurses in Phx are issued a gown and a mask for their entire shift, not even an N95, How do we as a whole stop this ass-backward bullshit? Why can’t we hold Admin and HR to the same expectation? Should we form a Staff Counsel and Nationwide Inspection Process every 3 years to see their PPE stockpiles, isolation gowns, gloves, masks, N95’s, everything they have in place to protect staff?

      if you go to court, they have for you what appears to be a staged 17th century , with hanging pole outside and all. Prepare for cases and get a dirty judge who puts on like they are interested but know they are going to put the noose on your neck. you don’t have a chance. my comment “”” The order issued in my case was full of inaccuracies and was in direct conflict with the facts listed within by the Judge as well as supplied in evidence. Yep FLOORED by our people’s legal system !
      No statutory declared timelines were upheld. The respondent missed every deadline but was always allowed to submit anyway. Then the Judge herself missed the 20 day deadline by more than 30 days. I questioned this verbally with no response so I then submitted a formal written questioning for reasoning and expectations which prompted a rushed and inaccurate order to be written and issued that same day in the respondents favor with the order itself listing contradictory evidence and facts!
      I am floored that this is our people’s legal system and that I believed it was fair! I guess it is time to seek my ombudsman to assist with my due process rights to a FAIR consideration of evidence!

      As optimistic as I am, action group will not make any changes that the bd doesn’t want. And will protect them, not being fooled, like they really want to work with this group, think about it. Many others have tried, a c, and others. Part of AZNA and they are not interested in helping nurses who are on probation revoked, surrendered AT ALL. They want to control it all . The OAH is still operating in it’s usual corrupt manner , and the bd will be too . Give them your problems with the board you want fixed and see what becomes of it.

      And if you ask for a hearing…You have just wasted your time (and money if you hire an attorney!!) The hearing offices Judges are a complete joke and do whatever the ROC wants 100%, like a bunch puppets that they are!!
      If you are considering getting a contractors license in Arizona! Do yourself a huge favor and move on to the next state or do not bother!!
      They are as bad and crooked as it gets!!
      Example: Imagine remodeling an entire kitchen with everything brand new…including cabinets, sink, counter top, new microwave, new refrigerator, new dish washer, etc…
      And the customer does not like the color of the counter top! Files a complaint with the ROC! And the ROC along with the Hearing Officices makes you give ALL THE MONEY back to the customer for the entire job…INCLUDING the brand new refrigerator, stove, dishwasher, microwave, and cabinets!!

      Amazing the only offices that are in place to obtain citizens rights but are a joke. Write all of this ‘sounds good’ mission statements, and policies , when none of it is true. Just send off a form letter, blowing you off , and they ‘did their job”. Like this corrupt board of nursing . Over the years sent in some very unsafe practices, it takes A LOT for someone to get reported. mostly take it up with the person directly but when the answer you get , is a flippant remark, well then they need to take it seriously and it might be the bon . Not ONE of the dangerous complaints was i called to respond or give input, never saw them on the agenda, NOTHING . Not even a ‘we looked into it ” , nothing ! I guess if they sent a letter saying they investigated, and something happens they are liable. . The fact he sent this, puts him more liable, the board doesn’t acknowledge and will lie they didn’t receive it , oh but your talking to someone who keeps records.
      They know or should know how many have taken the time to contact them , it’s all on record. And sometimes you got to call them on it !

      I can only imagine what these nurses are going through….how do they survive this with any kind of emotional health left intact? Not only taking licenses but tying their hands , when their calling is at it’s highest. It is now when the greedy, who took licenses, ordered unnecessary probation’s , that are getting a “LITTLE” bit of what happened to those nurses you so wrongly judged. It is now when Queer quinn, group will see the favoritism of who gets the emergent procedures and who is given the 2nd rate treatment , ” we “are more important. Even though they call themselves a “group” . or ‘team” . Dental offices closed, are they putting emergent when it is not to keep working forging documents to they can make a buck.
      Also, it’s an insult to the nurses, ….to think that they’d have to suffer a pay cut ; have their income taken from them, while “living through hell” while administration is not suffering at least the same pay cut?. And if the administration is not, then that is a failure of leadership that is inexcusable, and I would hope that after this crisis passes, that the concerned parties come forward and DEMAND that the administration is fired. “Inexcusable” is mildest word I can find.

Guidelines issued by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services state that nurse anesthetists should be “supervised” by a physician, thus preventing these well‐trained specialized nurses from providing anesthesia independently while freeing up physician anesthesiologists so more patients can receive care. “”””

    Whenever one reviews the history of nursing and goes far back into hospital journals which frequently display pictures of teams of nurses it is very apparent that these old pictures reveal a group of different nurses. At least in the visual sense. Going way back in the Boston City Hospital and Mass General libraries we see pictures of nurses that look like they could physically do some work. 

    Not long ago I was watching a video of Janeen Dahn speaking at the National Council meeting about some more regulatory interests that the AZBN thought was needed. She first started out mocking new grads for depicting themselves as ‘R.N.s’ by wearing specific jewelry and vanity types of accessories that new grads like to express in their success. This mockery lead into a group of failures commonly seen by new grads. The next AZBN presenter was much of the same. More regulation and mockery. The audience seemed amused. These presenters had one thing in common, they looked like they couldn’t carry a bedpan from point A to point B without stopping at a MacDonald’s for a big mac and fries. A good amount of the audience as well look so out of shape that they couldn’t last a full shift on a busy med/surg floor. So we end up with monster regulatory agencies whose main goal is to create more regulations and make good salaries and lots of big macs and fries who have little concept of what the real warriors are doing. These new grads could use assistance and guidance in those first few critical years of nursing not mockery and more regulations from a group that wants more regulations to add more tax dollars for their appetites of more MacDonalds big macs & fries.

      Right on, yep my thoughts exactly ! Like why keep coming on here ? numbers of the ones joining azna down ? When you look at who is on the over sight committee of the auditor general, forget about it. Talk about partners in corruption ! Not happening . The AZ Board of nursing and partners in crime , other agencies and those employees not on the board but a part of it are nasty people. No nurse should ever trust the AZNA. They could care less who is on the board , and how racist they are, it was a political move , and now they are parading around like hero’s . Not buying into it.

      The small Hitlers are around us every day , tormenting us with their promises , rejoicing in our weaknesses , demanding out trust , our votes, and our lives, while remaining totally indifferent to everything except their thirst for power. Power to order the lives of others consoles them for their own insufficiencies , their lack of humanity. They must have power or perish, and it is all one to them if they misuse their power of crush others in their efforts to seize power. With an obsessive need to control nurses and their destiny’s , no matter how much harm they cause it is a ‘high” , Always striving for more power because they are “small Hitlers”.

      Politics is always dirty . Politicians are always crooked in some way. Working for a state agency, the board of nursing, is not suppose to be political , legally . OAH, not suppose to be biased , but they are . Auditor General, well they go through the motions and have to make recommendations, but will not make changes , nothing drastic which the board of nursing needs and is long over due. The Attorney General office , prosecuting nurses for the board of nursing is unfair right from the get go. The AZNA should be an association that sticks up for the bedside nurse as well as NP, stick up for nurses so they can do their job , but they don’t they side with the corrupt BON , and hospitals. The board wanted to get rid of Lajuena Gillette, and the AZNA helped them push her over the edge. The board wants on paper more over sight to protect them, and the AZNA will act like they are against them and push for that , but in reality they are acting like a Government agency , for the BON and again not for the front line nurses . Getting a bill passed so CRNA”s don’t have to call for antimedics from their over sight Dr. BIG DEAL . Just doing that for idiot box Randall Quinn. Pushing to put CRNA”s on the board another BS move , who do you represent ? <900 . SO many things wrong with AZ BON , no way will any of the real problems be fixed. But then it doesn't affect the lab coat wearing , initials does it ? The only hope one has is to find a judge who is honest, impartial, and fair, and that is not something that happens .

      Looks like that cult member UDALL is a bit shady too.
      -“A preponderance of the evidence is such proof as convinces the trier of fact that the contention is more probably true than not.” MORRIS K. UDALL, ARIZONA LAW OF EVIDENCE § 5 (1960). A preponderance of the evidence is “evidence which is of greater weight or more convincing than evidence which is offered in opposition to it; that is, evidence which as a whole shows that the fact sought to be proved is more probable than not.” BLACK’S LAW DICTIONARY 1120 (8th ed. 2004).
      So every ‘trier ” of fact ” believes the liars who the board partners with . Nothing like being judged by a board of cult members , under the cults stupid statements that do not apply , just words to twist around. THERE IS NO EVIDENCE MORRIS YOU MORON ! WHAT weight is given to the defendant ? NONE , what information is WEIGHED ??? just stamp their corrupt name on the paper , then pass it off to a corrupt board ! And one can sit there and lie, and be coached by the crooked campbell cunt cueing them on.

      Cult leaders trap member in shame cycles by imposing abnormally strict codes of conduct (diet, appearance, sex , relationships, media ) guilting member for their shortcomings , then positioning themselves as the unique remedy to the feelings of guilt which they themselves created . Sound like the sick corrupt board of nursing ? Why are board members reading nurses , and even those who do not have a license anymore Fb, web, pages, etc , very ODD . Any shortcomings of their own are ignored and never brought up. Randy Quinn and Donelle Quinn both have their share of speeding tickets. POOR DECISIONS. Like your not endangering the public and your own kids? But that is poo poo’d, like no big deal.let’s only focus on dui’s. And now many mormon cops have let them off , of a lot of them . ? Like McCormies husband being a cop , how many has she lied about and gotten out of ? How many nurses have gambling problems, which is well known to cause other problems . Stealing from patients, cheating on hours, etc . Run a credit check on them you might just be surprised.

      The healthcare regulatory boards tend to publish absolutely awful things about us. They do this on websites, in press releases, an in other places for all to see. They lie, spin, twist, and defame. They make monsters of us. No board that we are aware of publishes the beleaguered healthcare professionals’ side of the story. Nor do the boards tend to write in objective styles. In language that is actually written into laws and rules, the boards write that we are “immoral,” “unprofessional ” ” and represent “grave dangers to the public.” The AZ board of nursing is unreasonable, ruthless and uses trickery . Many nurses go for years without being targeted, and will find this hard to believe a state agency would or could get away with this. Many agencies are helping them, it is a group effort and all of them know what they are doing, but gang style think it won’t reflect on them .
      Doing nothing, pretending it doesn’t happen, is a reflection of one’s assistance in helping them. judges, sham courts , political groups, lawmakers , auditor, Gov office, triage of complaints , they are all in on it.

      This arizona board seems to get worse by the year. Some nurses were caught in their snare trap YEARS ago,they don’t remember all of today’s corrupt board members. The ones who hang , like a turd you can’t shake , (valerie smith) know they are doing bad things , but will keep doing it. Elizabeth Campbell is aware she attacking someone’s credibility , and that the person is being framed , but continues to do it. Sunita Krishna , is attacking nurses , calling them liars when they prove it she changes her story. Ridenour with that SMIRK , look , of ha ha , so unprofessional , she really does need a public question and answer session, she couldn’t handle it , so dumbed down ducy will have to cover for the one who can’t talk little lone speak for herself . She had Harris on speed dial, til he got sick of her, and depends on other dummies in the office to cover for her . Putting it all on the board , none of them have figured it out yet she will walk scott free while they take the hit, all the while pretending she had nothing to do with it. Mean while she collects a pay check and shows her incompetence just watch her

    Review Legal Assessment AZBN 

    The run of the mill expressions here have brought a good amount of views throughout the state, and nationally, which has informed many nurses from all specialties. Comments have a wide range of sources that can be character assassinations to accurate probative evidence defining names, dates and locations of incidences of violations by AZBN. It would be a higher focus to call many definitions declarations of crimes. As this information has filtered throughout the internet much might be described as anonymous as names were vacant. In the past 2-3 months I have placed my name on posts that can be directly linked to me which has brought to me people and groups who want to move with the numbers of nurses that have been abused by this Board with issues ranging from false witnessing, posting at the national council site hearsay statements not to mention a mountain of violations by Beth A, Campbell, the AAG, of intentional ignoring of state statutes. We’ve been over this territory many times. There are groups of attorneys and nurses now making moves for review through the legislative process to address these issues and we need as many nurses whose civil rights have been violated to have this Board, and their constituents brought to accountability. Without going into specific detail I would say that the review is not for a while so we have got time to organize the evidence and prepare presentations for each nurse. The time to face your fears is soon, these bulls of abuse are in our cross-hairs and your input can guaranty relief from the illegal damage they’ve done to you and your family. The requirement of coming out of the shadows is a must and without sunshine on their evil deeds more and more nurses and patients will become victims. drethics@cableone.net and pearyb@yahoo.com are the contacts. Stand up and face the demons.
