hi there~ I am currently a nursing student who just took the nursing boards. Currently my results are being withheld because the Board of Registered nursing has not received all my documents from my school. The administrative and records office has time and time again messed up with correctly filling out my documents. I currently have a job on hold, which I can not start until my license number appears on the BRN site (again, nothing will show until all correct documents are received). My orientation is this coming Tuesday and I will not be receiving the nurse's rate due to this whole fiasco. I have tried to get in contact with the records office and they are not seeing this as an urgent matter. Is there any way I can have the school pay for the difference that I will not be getting paid due to their mistakes and negligence? (the records office messed up on every single students' documents in my cohort and the anxiety level is increasing. Some students also can not obtain a testing date due to this as well) HELP! I need some advise!

will it cost more (time and money) trying to file a lawsuit against them than just going through the orientation and then waiting for my license number to show online?
It is impossible for anyone to answer that question accurately. The answer is dependent upon when (or if) the school properly submits all documentation. It will also depend on whether your employer will hold your job
what type of specialty lawyer would I have to find?
I apologize but due to site related technical difficulties I am just me of receiving your follow-up question. Typically it would be best to retain a civil litigation attorney.Thank you so much for the bonus.If I can be of assistance in the future, begin your question with: "For FiveStarLaw"
