Several options, but I am speaking from Texas Bon, and Texas Board of Health, that granted me my respiratory care practioner lis.
1). Even though your nursing lis. Is revoked most all states grant application to reinstate, in Texas it is after one year...
i I applied and was granted reinstatement in 1996, for my RN lis., but did not like the stipulations re: uds, having to call or check in every day to learn if it was my turn. I felt it was more harsh...than a convicted felon....so I never completed for a while (almost ten years the stipulations)
in 2000 my first husband got killed on job, I came into significant $s....and did not have to work....but got bored some 2-3 years later......I wanted to return to health care, but did not want to jump thru the hoops of my nursing stipulations,
so, I entered local technical school got my associates in Resp therapy, actually passed my CRT, before I graduated, but had to apply to State of Texas for RCP.....of course one of the questions was past displinary actions and or criminal history.
I was honest, and explained I had xyz amount of sobriety.... I was granted approval, ten days after graduation I took and passed my RRT.....fortunately or however you look at it six months later returning to nursing became a burning desire....Texas board of nursing was just patiently waiting for me to complete stipulations, which I was more willing to do.
i learned a lot in respiratory school., they generally make more than LPN, not as much as seasoned RN.....if I had been content enough to remain respiratory...I would never have to do the 3 yr.monitoring stipulations to regain un encumbered RN status.....so today I do both, without regrets.
this is what works for me in Texas, hopefully Ohio will be the same.
