Become A Nurse-Adopt Provider And "Clock In At Home."
Nurses California has a new state law; AB 1133
Our Assembly Bill 1133, became California State Law. Our State bill will require that, when determining the placement of a foster child who is medically fragile, “Priority Consideration” will be given to placement with a foster parent who is an independent nurse provider via EPSDT private duty nursing programs. AIW created this law for the growing medically fragile foster care population including micro-preemies, infants, children and youths. If they don’t come to us Nurses first, they are passed back and forth into numerous Group Homes, Institutional Care Settings, and into and out of under-educated and poorly supported foster homes. This is a childhood no child should endure, let a lone an innocent micro-preemie.
Getting Started; " Clocking In At Home."
Thank you for your interest in helping California's medically fragile foster care infants and children. We nurses work under Medi-Cal's EPSDT Private Duty Nursing program. It is a "NON-WAIVER," EPSDT program that requires Nurses to have acute care NICU, PICU, ICU or Pediatric nursing experience. For pediatric in-home-care nurses, 2000 hours or equivalent nursing experience is required. If you have the required nursing experience and if you meet EPSDT’s requirements, this is truly an opportunity to make a deep impact in the life of a child who is in need of loving, competent care. Being a Nurse-Adopt Provider will be one of the most gallant endeavors of your Nursing Career!
