DACA ADVISORY #DreamActNow

 DACA ADVISORY : Despite the craziness in Congress and from the Trump administration’s incensed rhetoric, current DACA recipients CAN APPLY TO RENEW their status. Please note that if someone has never had DACA, they may not submit a new application.

DACA recipients are encouraged to consult with an immigrant-rights attorney or qualified advocate to assess their circumstances before applying to renew their status.

Will the Supreme Court Silence Nurses?

The Supreme Court will hear the billionaire-funded case of Janus vs. AFSCME that threatens to silence the collective voices of health care workers. Patient care will suffer, and the health and safety of those who care for them is at risk.

ACA Repeal: Millions Will Lose Coverage, Hundreds of Thousands Will Lose Jobs

From the UCLA Center for Health Policy Research.

ACA Repeal = Millions will lose coverage + Hundreds of thousands will lose jobs

Up to 3.7 million insured in California’s Medicaid expansion and a further 1.2 million Californians receiving subsidies to buy affordable health insurance in Covered California are at risk if current Republican plans to repeal the Affordable Care Act are enacted, according to a set of new studies and county fact sheets from the UC Berkeley Center for Labor Research and Education and the UCLA Center for Health Policy Research.

Millions of Californians stand to lose from ACA repeal in some way — either through lost access to affordable coverage or to jobs created by health insurance expansion.

“Fallout from Republican changes to the health care system could be even more harmful if the administration changes the way Medi-Cal benefits are calculated or if coverage features are reduced,” said Miranda Dietz, researcher at the UC Berkeley Labor Center and lead author of one study.

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.
