I have been an RN for 30+ years and am currently working as a pediatric home care nurse (in Iowa). This has been a really rough year due to family illness etc. and I forgot to renew my license. I had my CEU's done already a year ago. My license renewal was due in Oct. of 2011. I just realized 2 days ago that my license was expired with the weekend ahead of me and not being able to get ahold of the Iowa nursing board to find out what to do. Has this ever happened to anyone??? I have never done anything like this before and am so upset.
