Reinstatement, Re-entry..Anxiety

  1. 0 While working out of state in 2007 I was arrested for possession of narcotics-not work related. I was working on a temp license and that state just chose not to renew me. During this time my home state license expired. Rather than answer the "have u been arrested?" question I let it lapse. I decided to just deal with my recovery for awhile. 5 years later and I am ready to try to get my license back. I've since reported my substance abuse to my home state, reapplied and the BON told me to enroll in a reentry program. Does anyone know how this works? Will a reentry program accept me and if so will a hospital allow me to do my clinical under these circumstances- and how do I bring it up with the reentry program? I miss nursing so much and I really want to get my life back on track but I am really intimidated by the process. Any advice or experience would be greatly appreciated! I live in Georgia. Thanks!!
