Hello my fellow Georgia RN's,
Did anyone else miss seeing the note to submit a SVD with your RN license renewal this year or am I the only nurse who missed seeing the "yellow block" with instructions? I filled out the online renewal form on Jan. 5, 2013, entered my credit card info and my fees were taken the next day. Meanwhile I was busy working, then lost my internet for 10 days, then went on vacation, and while on I-75 returning from vacation, recieved a call from my boss that my nursing license had LAPSED. Well, you can imagine my distress, so I found out on the website, that a SVD, a copy of drivers license had to be submitted, which my boss immediately did, and I called the BON, after holding for 45 minutes, I was told that I missed the deadline extension by 7 days, it was indeed lapsed and to reinstate takes "5 weeks or longer". OMG so....sitting here calling to try to find help, just wondering if I am the only one?
