    You will need to declare to the new state as it will ask. Then will they make their own decision based on what information you have submitted

    Your prospects for getting a license in state A while you have a license revoked in state B are slim to none....and closer to none.

    i had a nursing business 2001 doj closed the business. and found me guilty of 4 felonies. i was on probation for 4 years and had met all the requirement before my license was revoked by the BON for none response of the letters they claim they sent me. the nursing board said i can reply for reinstatment in april of next year. what do i do and how do i go about doing it?. what forms do i need? I have been on walfare for almost 3 years now. i just sit at home get $682 cash and $425 in food stamps, free medical and my rent for a 4 bed room $127. even though when i was working i barely had $100 left after paying all my bills i still wana go back to work. i love being a nurse. and i want to further my education. a felony conviction don't stop one from having free money it stops one from working what a wonderful country.

    You simply send a letter to the board requesting reinstatement. List all of the facts that lead up to the revocation (including the felonies), the order for revocation and provision for reinstatement after one year, and all of the things you have done to pay your debt to society (probation etc.). Be honest and contrite. They may schedule a hearing or rule without one.

    the nursing board told my wife that she would have to go through the process of getting her license back in order to get off the exclusion list, even though she is going back to college to be a dental hygenist, this does not make sense to me. does anyone know if this is correct?????

    what i do know is this - (my experience) After i got my nursing license reinstated i did get off the OIG list. My Nursing Board gave me the web address to request the forms online, which I did, and in a matter of a few weeks I got a letter in the mail stating I was off the list. What I also do know is - do not accept the answer your wife got from her state board as the truth regarding what they told her she would have to do, go one step further and get your own "version of the truth" from the source (OIG people), as how she can get off exclusion list. from my experience once I opened up a line of communication with the OIG people they were very helpful and had my best interest.

    "Anything worth having is worth fighting for." I agree with the others in saying that it is best to have an attorney represent your interests and be your advocate when you are dealing with the state board. I know it is not cheap, but payment plans may be an option. The attorney should have experience in handling nursing board related matters. The American Association of Nurse Attorneys (of which I am a member) has a referral list and many of the nurse attorneys do have experience in representing nurses before the nursing board. As far as getting your license back, check the order of revocation to see if it stated how long of a period had to pass before you could re-apply for your license. The primary thing that any board is going to be interested in is your recovery and what evidence you can present on that issue including participation in any treatment programs and continued sobriety. The nursing board websites for each state offer a wealth of information. Take some time and review the website and your particular state's rules. The nursing board staff can and will answer your questions but keep in mind that they are their to protect the public's welfare, not your license. Even if you are able to get your license re-instated, be prepared that it may be granted with conditions including monitoring and certain restrictions on your practice. Best wishes.
