    Good luck. Perhaps if you ask on the general nurses board or another board, rather than the introductions board, you'll get more people to answer. Welcome.

    The best advice I can give is to get an attorney- a Nurse Attorney if possible. If you have malpractice insurance, contact your agent and they should be able to help. Going it alone in my opinion is not a smart thing to do. Good luck.

    Hello, funkyglyph,:Melody:

    Many have had to defend their license before the BON. If you are concerned, you should contact an attorney. Now many BON will tell you that an attorney will not make a difference for the outcome will be the same with or without one, but, I suggest that you do so.

    Good luck.
