When does the diversion program start in CA
- 1Sep 20, '11 by Tanya33Hi. So, I get my letter from the CA Bon saying there is a report against me and I can either do diversion or be investigated. I have 10 days to respond. If I do elect to enter the program, how quickly does it start? Is it immediate? If I decide not to do the program is that decision final after 10 days, or can I change my mind and do the diversion program down the road? Not sure what to do. Thanks!

The American Association of Nurse Attorneys
The California Bar Association Lawyer Referral Service
Good luck and let us know how things go.
