I graduated from nursing school
in 1999 and passed the NCLEX. I started working as a RN in L&D, but ended up falling in love with home health. I loved what I did, but due to back problems and PMDD I had to quit working after only 10yrs. During this time I was arrested for a DWI which was exponged. I reported it to the BON as it was time to renew my license. It was not alcohol, but my own prescriptions that the cops said was the problem. I don't drink. I gave all the paperwork that the board requested to them, but they kept saying they needed more & there wasn't any. I finally gave up & my license is now lapsed. I'm much better now and would love nothing more than to go back to nursing. I'm worried that my SSI Disability due to my PMDD, or they just listed psych reasons, will prevent me from getting my license reinstated. I realize that the DWI is my own fault. Does anyone have any advice or dealt with anything similar?
