NO MAN’S LAND . . . The Gap Between
Program Completion And BRN Certification
The BRN will not complete the NP/CNS certification process
for 2-3 months. They will notify you of your NP license
number once they receive all the necessary paperwork and
process it. During this period, you cannot “hold yourself
out” as a nurse practitioner or clinical nurse specialist,
because you do not yet have your license and have not
been formally recognized by the State of California, nor may
you practice as a nurse practitioner or clinical nurse
specialist during this period. Having said that, you certainly
can practice as a nurse using your new knowledge and
skills to supplement your nursing practice. Until such time
as you have your license in hand, we recommend that you
identify yourself as “RN, MS” whenever you write your name
and whenever you chart.

Ceremonies
MASONIC AUDITORIUM
1111 California St., San Francisco
         June 2, 2006
THINGS TO REMEMBER:

 Detailed information will be mailed in April
 Location: Masonic Memorial Auditorium, San Francisco
 Time: Ceremony is at 6:00 - 7:30. Reception is 7:30 - 8:30.
 No limit to the number of guests you may invite. No tickets
  necessary.
 Consider your family and friends. Is it better to plan a later
  celebratory dinner reservation (e.g., 9:00 pm) or late lunch
  somewhere?
 Think, also, about planning parties or celebrations with
  classmates on the weekend or another day as the reception can
  be fun but chaotic.
 Arrive at Masonic at 5:00 p.m. We will separate family from
  graduates at 5:00. In the student/faculty assembly area, we will
  ask MS students to line up single file in two lines. Remember
  that if you want to sit with friends, you need to line up in front or
  in back of your friends as the two lines will go into separate
  sections of the auditorium.
