Relocating with a Monitoring Agreement - Page 2Register Today!
- Apr 4, '12 by jackstemQuote from lobbyThe attorneys I've consulted with generally recommend finishing your current monitoring program. Every state deals with this issue in a different manner so you can't use an experience in one state to predict what will happen in another, hence the recommendation to involve an experienced license defense attorney. With 6 months remaining on your current program, now would be an appropriate time to seek out an attorney.Jack-
Thank you! I am now at the 6 month mark, so I only have a little bit longer to go. I am planning to move next week to South Carolina. Michigan's HPRP has been difficult to deal with only because they never give me a straight answer. They don't seem to have a policy/procedure on how to move. At this point I have decided to pack my bags and move. I will continue to follow my contract while in South Carolina until I decide to transfer everything over to South Carolina. I do have an attorney on board in South Carolina and would like to know when its best to get them involved, what do you recommend?
Also, since I have 6 months left on my Michigan contract do you recommend I finish out my contract while in SC and hold off on applying for a license and finding a job until everything is complete?
Your advice is greatly appreciated!
The American Association of Nurse Attorneys has an attorney referral service available.
- Apr 4, '12 by all_over_againI guess it's an "If you can't beat 'em, join 'em" strategy.
And I agree with you 100% that your outcome is likely to be more favorable if you have an attorney.
The entire process is fundamentally unfair. When you're sick, you should get a doctor and get well. You shouldn't have to have a lawyer.
- May 2, '12 by lobbyThank you for all you assistance, it is greatly appreciated.
- May 2, '12 by lobbyThank you for sharing your story. Honestly, this is not easy, but I know that I (we) will all get through it one day at a time! If you don't mind me asking what other states to you apply where they did not require additional monitoring. Good luck to you!!!!

- May 2, '12 by all_over_againJack, I'm soooo glad that you still care even though there is $ to be made from others' misery. Kudos to you. All I've ever wanted is to help without being traumatized myself. If the world were perfect, I would expect a competent person to make a case for my reinstatement without an exorbitant fee. Not gonna happen. Sober and healthy without BON help, AOA
- May 2, '12 by all_over_againBut I should add that I am seriously underemployed! Not a perfect life, but not beholden to some dumbass socialworker with issues. LOL.
- Sep 10 by mullen831May I ask what states are not requiring you to do monitoring?? I'm in OH and about 6 months away from the end but want to move so badly after finishing this madness. I can't and will not do this over again.
