This is something we can't advise you on - you NEED a lawyer, one who specializes in administrative law and who has dealt with the BON on multiple prior occasions. You should NOT discuss this.
Yes, you need a lawyer.
However, I am pretty sure you made the BON mad by not doing as they asked. You CAN be supervised as a SRNA and they will definately require it now when they give you a Board Order, even if it doesn't come til after you are a CRNA.
YES it matters when you apply for a job or hospital PRIVILEGES (not a right-sadly, you have none).
Don't sign anything, be anonomous and call TPAPN to find out their requiments and if you are even eligible to self refer. The requiments are stringent but no greater than the BON will require now that you are on their radar. The BON has now branded you as uncooperative and its easiest for them to just suspend your license.
The lawyer will best advise you if its best to self refer and get all this NONSENSE overwith.
The BON IS NOT YOUR FRIEND! They have a huge backlog and want to deal with you the simplest way.
NEVER RESPOND TO THE BON OR HOSPITAL PEER REVIEW GROUP WITHOUT TALKING TO A LAWYER 1ST!!
TO ANYONE, if a hospital peer review group starts making aligations, don't admit to anything other than you want to call your lawyer-one that has dealt with the BON and is on your speed dial. They have the right to revoke your PRIVILEGES and you are GUILTY until proven innocent.
