Not sure how to start but that is where I am at "the start". I am getting my paper work together to petition for re-instatment after a drug arrest and federal incarcertion. RN licencse from TX. Sober for 5 years now. I am having trouble going through with the process of just submitting everything to ask for the hearing. Seems hopless???? Has anyone dealt with the Texas board on this type of issue? Any Advice?? I realize the re-instatment is just half the battle. This is a personal goal now. I have a great non-nursing job but I love nursing and so want to go back. Advice encouragment please.
