It seems that Gov. Schwarzenegger is getting a bigger problem with the California Board of Registered Nursing, as Ruth Ann Terry – the Board’s 16 year executive officer is stepping down.
From the LA Times:
The longtime executive officer of the embattled California Board of Registered Nursing resigned Tuesday, ensuring almost entirely new leadership for the agency as it strives to revamp its oversight of hundreds of thousands of caregivers.
But the sweeping reforms promised by Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger this week face significant obstacles — not the least of which are the governor’s own budgetary gambits and his failure to fill key vacancies in his administration.
On Monday, the governor abruptly replaced four board members and filled two vacancies, saying in a statement that his new panel would move “quickly and decisively” (there is still one vacancy on the board). He will swear in the new members today.
