Staying on the Job Story


"We are looking for someone to build a future with our organization." Those words were burning in my ears as I left the building. I saw my reflection in the window - I never felt so old. There I stood staring at my face as if the wrinkled lines were an etched pencil drawing: they didn't care about my experience, they thought I was too old. They are right - I am too old and tired to fight their discrimination.

  • I am a Registered Nurse and have worked continuously as a RN in the Phoenix area for 37 years. This year a requirement for proof of citizenship is required. I have my Certified birth Certificate but it is not acceptable by the State Board of Nursing because my first and middle names are reversed from what the Arizona State Board of Nursing have on file. The only documentation I received to verify the change was my social security card. I am a Medicare Benificiary and I receive Social Security Benefits. I have been researching the accepted lists for proof of citizenship and find that Arizona states if you have been accepted into the Medicare program no other proof of citizenship is required. I have been a Medicare Benificiary since I was 65, a total of 6 years. However, the Arizona State Board of Nursing lists do not include enrollment in Medicare as proof of Citizenship. What can I do to prove I am a United States Citizen?
