I was home for 15 years, let my license lapse
4 years ago we moved from Mich to Texas. Michigan said "take boards again, if you pass you get your license. (brag mode on: passed them the 1st try 20 years after the 1st time I took 'em!) Texass LVN board has refused me a license. They 've told me either go back to school and start over again or go back to Mich and work for a year. Wouldn't accept boards, no preceptorship, nope to refresher course. After more than a year of fighting with the LVN board, I've left husband and kids and moved temporaily back to MI. found a job the 1st week.. and they are willing to work with me. 25% of my time in MI is over. I'm at a SNF, on a rehab unit.
Still homeschooling, too Long Distance
hard decision, but in a lot of ways it beats spending 6-8 K repeating the education I already have. I make a lot more in MI than I can in TX anyway. maybe I'll get to build my house?
