RN License Renewal and Fingerprinting: Are You BRN Compliant?

fingerprints

You may think that you’ve already submitted fingerprints for your RN license renewal, but the BRN may still consider you noncompliant. There are several reasons for this, for example,

  • Your prints could not be read,
  • Your prints went to the Department of Justice, but not the FBI; and they need to go to both agencies, or
  • You did fingerprints for another license, but the prints did not cross over to your RN license renewal.

​Are you licensed before 6/6/08? If so, you should call the special number: (916) 515-5278 M/W/F from 0800-1200 or T/Th from 1300-1700 or email: BRNFingerprints@dca.ca.gov

Your license IS AT RISK, if you are one of the 50,000 RNs who the BRN still has listed as needing to submit fingerprints. Act now and make sure you are BRN license compliant.

– Health Professions and Education Foundation (HPEF) Scholarship Program through the California Office of Statewide Health Planning and Development (OSHPD) is now accepting applications through February 29, 2016.

The purpose of the HPEF scholarship program is to improve access to healthcare in underserved areas of California by providing scholarships to health professional students who are dedicated to providing direct patient care in those areas. In return for this support, recipients agree to provide direct patient care in a medically underserved area (MUA) of California for a period of one to three years. For additional information, visit their website.

The purpose of the NURSE Corps Loan Repayment Program is to assist in the recruitment and retention of professional registered nurses (RNs) and advanced practice registered nurses dedicated to working in health care facilities with a critical shortage of nurses, or working as nurse faculty at an eligible school of nursing. The program offers these RNs substantial financial assistance to repay a portion of their qualifying educational loans in exchange for full-time service at either a health care facility with a critical shortage of nurses or at an eligible school of nursing in the case of nurse faculty. A pre-recorded Webinar is available and covers eligibility requirements, the online application process, and resources for those considering applying to the NURSE Corps Loan Repayment Program.
