Nurse Practicianer can and do, but I am not sure about a straight RN (Registered Nurse).
A quick search on the net, I do not see where a RN can do a C&P. All I see are NP's, or registered nurse practicioners.
But they may have changed it up,
Are new laws currently in effect lowering the medical qualifications for C&P examiners??
I was looking on the USAJOBS government website tonight and it seems the VA is seeking to hire nurses as C&P examiners.
Does this mean that RNs can be hired to examine, fill out dbqs, and do IMOs?
This is a game changer if true.
Yes appeal is at intake center at bva. But have not received a docket number yet.here is a copy of c-file denial. We have not talked to Vso yet. And the reason is the new claim says a development letter has been sent but of course again it has not arrived yet. The claim originated June 30 and is in gathering evidence. We don't have any new evidence relating to kidney disease connected to his heart disease. He has had diabetes since 1999. He was diagnosised with kidney disease in 2011. And ihd in 2013, when they had to replace his arotic valve. Now I have no idea what is going on. On the new claim on ebennies in a little box. It ask if we want them to go ahead and decide the claim to check the box. My other question he did not put in for p and t,. But if you notice on one of the dbq our doc said in his opinion he is not able to work. And these are diseases that are going to get worse and contribute to his death. So will they grant p and t. Even if he did not file for it. I think they want to say it is related to his heart,. But afraid they will say related to valve problem and deny it again. So if we say yes decide it. Then that kills the appeal. I'm I right on that? Any ideas are appreciated.
