• You do need to contact an attorney. This is not a good situation to be in. Many states are now requiring that you have a license in other states when dealing with patients over the phone, which is kinda stupid, but that’s the board for you. Their ideas often have devastating consequences to nurses, not that they care.

  • You are in a rather difficult situation. I would contact an attorney as soon as possible and get some advice on this. Make sure it’s an attorney that deals with nurses.
    You will be caught if you answer that question with a “no” and there is disciplinary action on you in another state. Is it possible to get another job in case management anywhere…[Read more]

  • I need some advice. I live in DE and diverted narcotics back in 2009. While waiting to hear from the DE BON, I thought I was well enough to handle working in a hospital setting again. I diverted again in a hospital in MD.
    When I appeared before DE’s BON panel, I only disclosed that I had “relapsed” and never explained into detail what had happe…[Read more]

  • I’m so sorry that you’re experiencing these difficulties. Or many of us who have been going through this for a long time it is no surprise. It just helps to have other people to talk to that understand what you’re going through. Especially since this group is a private group you can tell your feelings without fear the Board of Nursing or your…[Read more]

  • Awe, Stephanie you are certainly not alone. Everyone here has been through what you’re going through and knows how you feel. It’s probably one of the most difficult things you’ll ever go through in your life. You have to stay strong and make sure you have a good attorney. Do not talk to the board without an attorney. I hope you had one with you…[Read more]

  • Well, here I am. Just like most of you I’m sure, I never thought I’d be here. I’ve gone through so many emotions while going through this process, I’m now so confused I don’t know how to feel. I had my evaluation yesterday so now I’m waiting to hear what the outcome is. Will I be able to return to work? Will I have restrictions? Will I lose everyt…[Read more]

  • Samantha, make sure that you tell the other nurses that you’ve met about this group. It’s very important that we get the numbers together so we can fight against the Board of Nursing. In fact, anyone reading this right now can help grow this group immensely just by posting on other internet sites for nurses and telling people that this site is…[Read more]

  • Hello Janine, welcome to the most wonderful group on the internet for nurses who are facing disciplinary action or are in recovery. The Board of Nursing regardless of which state you live in are horrible people whose only job is to wreck the lives of nurses that don’t deserve it. They put serious restrictions on nurses. Ones that can’t even be…[Read more]

  • Hi,
    Welcome to the group. How did your dialysis interview go?

  • Welcome to the group Janine, we are glad to have you. I have been here since the group started so I’ve seen a lot and heard a lot of horror stories. But I’ve also heard a lot of good stories nurses that made it through the program.
