When I enteredthe DBA 'A Forever Recovery' in the Michigan LARA system to check for any type of medical/nursing license the response I got was:

No Licenses were found for the search criteria entered.
Also got the same response for 'Narcon'.

It is NOT legal in Michigan to call yourself a nurse if you are not properly trained and licensed. By Federal law even a nurse aid has to be certified and registered. From: http://www.michigan.gov/lara/0,4601,7-154-35299_28150_27529_27544---,00.html

Nurse Aide Registration Program

The Federal government passed legislation in 1987 entitled the Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act (OBRA). One of the provisions of that legislation was the registration of nurse aides. A Nurse Aide is defined as any individual providing nursing or nursing-related services to residents in a long term care facility who is not a licensed health professional, a registered dietitian or a volunteer who provides such services without pay. Nurse Aides must complete a training program and pass a knowledge test and a clinical skills test before they can be registered in Michigan.

The Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs, Bureau of Health Professions is responsible for the administration of the nurse aide program. We review and approve the training programs and contract with Prometric to develop and administer the tests. Prometric also maintains the Michigan Registry which is the master list of all the certified nurse aides in Michigan.

A little bird told me that a complaint was filed in Michigan with absolutely no response.

Sounds to me like a Federal complaint would be in order, since the requirement for Aids to be registered came from a Federal law.

Perhaps, but that would require names of unlicensed nurse aides and facilities where they are employed- meaning more than one place. BTW, A nurse aide is an easy license to get. Calling oneself a nurse, however, means one is implying one is a LPN or RN. Only unawares people call a Nurse's Aide a Nurse. Staes also have rights to expand on this Nurse Aide law. ( Do you have a link to the federal law?)
A complaint to Michigan licensing with speacifics and the law referenced should do it.

The Federal law started with a requirement in the Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act of 1987, which led to legislation in the 1991 Social Security Act requiring Residential Care facility nursing aides to be certified. The job of administering certification programs, and tracking certification status was laid on the states. I'm trying to find a link to the specific info that doesn't lead to a zillion page .pdf document.

This was mainly aimed at problems that had been happening in nursing homes for the elderly, but in fact applies to all Residential Care facilities. All 50 states have nurse aide certification requirements as a result of the 1991 SSA. Most of which, including Michigan, are tighter  than the Federal rules. The link for the Michigan certification info is in my earlier post above.

And Aides can be called Aides, Nurse Aides, or Nursing Aides, but they cannot be called Nurses, which requires years of training and licensing, as opposed to 4 months of training and certification as an Aide.

Mary - Have you seen Holly Conklin's letter? It's not dated. Apparently, she's being persecuted by people in scary masks.

That letter was a good attempt to deflect the fact that she is on the Narconon payroll.  I am not "Anonymous" nor am i attacking her personally.   I am out in the open saying Narconon and all of its operations lie, cheat and steal to get money.  They lie about their program being scientology, they cheat to get credentials and they steal money from families and insurance companies.  Hey Holly, where did you get your CADC cert from?  Im curious as to who certified you and how you got that cert.  Do tell in the next letter.
ET went home.

LOL! No but it does not surprise me. I went and did a search of WWP to see what the heck she's talking about. There are a few posts about her on WWP, beginning in 2011- 2012 - Benign ones about her drug education articles on her site, a nice photo of her, comments and a copy of the complaint sent in by someone to the OK state licensing which mentions her name and her continual lying to the parent of the Narconon victim writing the report. Nothing to freak out about.

BTW, that letter has been up at least since Sept 2012, per the internet archive

I wonder how many recommendation letters she got out of it so far  ;)
