If there is anyone out there who has had to go before the Board of Nursing in their state for allegations, could you kindly e-mail me. I had to. Wanted to do some travel nursing. As it turns out, even after the Board that issues... Read More

    Sorry that you are going through this, but I have filed bankruptcy before and you can not include student loans in a bankruptcy. Try for a forbearance or a deferrment, they are very easy to get. I think you can do them over the phone now. If not then they will always lower your payment to something affordable for you, just call them.
    Thanks Keekeedt. I'll tell you, from day 1 I have been swimming upstream in this field i still feel blessed to be a part of. I have had to request deferrments and/or forebearances in the past. Yes, it can be done on the phone, but it costs $150.00 with Sallie Mae. Don't have the money. But you know, it's o.k.; i still believe God has a plan for me and that divine intervention has a way of turning negatives into positives.

    Thanks for your input!:heartbeat

    Indian Reservations are a good place to look, any state license will work. Also, do you live in a compact state? If you did then there are 22 compact states you can work in with your home state license. Just a few options.

    sounds like you may need to consult an attorney. check out this search engine for nurse attorney's. look up the state in which you wish to be licensed. you may be able to get a free consultation.

    been there experienced that 19yrs ago.
    Nothing happened to my license. People make mistakes. As long as you didn't hurt anyone, no stealing drugs or impairment while on the job you will be OK . This will be a fly on a horses a_ _ in a few years. Honesty is best.
    There are lots of nurses worse and get by with it. Trust me-been a nurse for 20 yrs.
    What has changed alot is the Board wants Perfect people-no such thing, nurses are people just like anyone else.
    Learn the lesson, your life is not ruined and don't let others scare you.

    Yes i have malpractice insurance and yes I had an attorney represent me. couldn't have done it without her. No..it looks like I won't be trraveling for a long time. It is difficult enough trying to obtain a job when you answer yes on the employment application regarding disciplinary action.
    I am so sorry that this has happened to you. It could happen to any of us...even when the best intentions are put forward, especially with the way hospitals staff these days.

    Wacondo, thank you, thank you, thank you for all of your very true and actually quite profound. I wrote this yesterday after some additional rude awakenings. I'll tell you the truth, I've been quite delusional about myself and life for a long time. I thank God that Ii have experienced everything I have for these past 2.5 years as a nurse because....they have made me a much more informed, strong person and nurse and ......life has taken an entirely new meaning for me.
    Thanks to you and everyone who has so generously come out to say a few kind words.
    Question, when I apply in an institution with the truth, do you know if HR reports this to my resident state board (which is not the state where this whole "thing" happened. Don't know if you know, but if anyone else knows, it would be helpful.:redpinkhe

    It is really not clear exactly what you did wrong. It is unfortunate you have such a large student loan debt. I assume that was for more than your nursing education. This is a tight job market but there is always a job for you. Start applying to everybody and eventually you and your job will meet up.
