  • What is the CA BRN Diversion Program?

    The Board of Registered Nursing (BRN)  has the primary responsibility of licensing and regulating registered nurses in California. The BRN's responsibilities come from the Nursing Practice Act, which is composed of California statutes that give the BRN, among other functions, the authority to manage a Diversion Program for registered nurses.

    The Diversion Program is a voluntary, confidential program for registered nurses whose practice may be impaired due to Substance Abuse Disorder and/or mental illness.
