Hello fellow nurses! My name is Walter and I have a situation that hopefully I can get some feedback on. I graduated from the University of Michigan Flint in 2004 and immediately moved to Chicago and passed my boards there. However, I had a DUI conviction so they put my nursing license on probation right from the start. Anyway, I did not adhere to the terms of my consent order so my license was suspended in June of 2008. I have since gotten a petition to restore my license but am kind of stuck because it recommends an attorney. To complicate matters, I am currently living back in Michigan and would just like to get the suspension lifted in Illinois so I can apply for a license in Michigan. Does all of that make any sense to anyone? I know it's a long story but if anyone has been through something like that and can steer me in the right direction it would be a BIG help. Maybe there is an attorney that is highly recommended in this area and works for a decent price? I'm new to this site and am not sure how to retrieve messages so I will also leave my e-mail address for any responses. firstname.lastname@example.org
. Thank-you for your help!!!!!
