    Some of is of my own fault, but one thing this situation has done, is give me a chance to reflect on where I am in life and what I really want. I plan on going in a different direction from here. EVERYTHING HAPPENDS FOR A REASON !!!:angel2:
    i truly hope you find what you're looking for.
    wishing you peace, closure and many successes.

    Quote from MustangSallie1997
    Heidisuz, I feel your pain, and know what you have been through. My husband, who has been very supportive, is currently working 2 jobs. The BON keeps saying I can work, I have no restrictions at this time, but as long as a potential employer goes to verify my license and it reads ALERT:UNDER INVESTIGATION..... what do you think is going to happen?? They move on tho the next person in line. I have 3 children, so I cant just go get a job at McDonalds or something, I wouldnt make enough to pay childcare !! My main fear is that my husband, who is prone to fall asleep at the wheel even with a full nights sleep, will be on his way home or to work and crash and kill himself and/or someone else, then where will my children and myself be ??
    I have gotten 3 letters of support per my attorney's advice and they were presented to the BON at my meeting. Two were from long time co-workers and one from my former boss. The committee meeting on my case will be held October 25th, I pray this will all be over then, and life can get back to normal. Christmas is comming, and the thought of SANTA not being able to get my children what they wish for just about breaks my heart.
    Thanks for your story, and your warm words of support, advice, and encouragement. It is just a shame that anyone can file a complaint and put you through this. I understand many complaints have merrit, but many do not and it is just not fair, especially when the process takes so long to go through.
    Thank you for writing back. I was not aware that they could put ALERT UNDER INVESTIGATION ON YOUR LICENSE> There is a place on a job application to tell your side of the story also. I have a discipline on my license for as long as my state wants to leave it there and states I served a probation. It also states that my license is free and clear too. If you are denied jobs then, the job was not where you need to be as if that is all they evaluate you on. Many a boss has had a discipline put on them. People who escape ones are those that probably needed it. In my state the Under Investigation means that is it confidential under investigation and they are not allowed to tell anyone. You tell only. But if you go for a job and they are not told then it is grounds for dismissal. Without any restictions then, if then, I was told here in this state, " Do not give prospective employers any information unless they ask until they offer you a job. " Then, what I was told to do just to tell them, " you have had a complaint. " Simple, they can not kill you for it. LOL ( my sense of humor )

    Who does not get complaints. We all do. If we did not get complaints it would show we are doing nothing. I have never seen a nurse that has not had some sort of complaint in his or her career. ( Behavior is not what others do to us but how we react. )

    Go get a job. Nurses are in such demands. Take a look at the people with complaints in your state. You will have an eye opener as this is public record.

    I have had one complaint over the height of a bed which under some silly rule I say for it is called a near miss, this is all I have had in 20 years. I am told this is a good record. I always get hired somewhere. No one has a job all the time. Sometimes we have down time.

    Those kids of yours need a Christmas.. Get up in the morning wash your face brush your teeth, put on clean clothes and look for a job. This is time they want to hire.

    My favorite attorney told me." some doctors have 20 complaints in one day written against them to the state." He said this to be true as he has had to get them taken off.

    Let us suppose, that they drop your complaint and give you a warning. What if they give you a discipline, you can still work. Remember they cannot take your license unless you have done something drastic and it sure sounds like you have not.

    Some facilities hire people that are on restictions. It is what you do daily and how you believe in yourself and how you find your inner strength. I am here if you ever need me to chat with, you have support out there. I have been through the worst and walked through it. I may not have reacted as I know I could have. I do have this experience to share with you. If it helps then, maybe that is why I had to go through it. Things will get better and you will remember but this will seem so small. This is not a felony, you are not being locked up, remember it is not the end of the world. If I were there with you I would give you a big hug and boot in the rear to get out and get another job. I am looking for a job right now. I want a better one then I had. Soon when you get through this you will develop another sense to help you deal with things. I believe someone said, " That that does not kill me with make me a stronger person. "

    Thank you for giving me the opportunity to share with you. It will be alright.

    Sincerely, hugs and things, please hug your kids and your husband and your pets if you have them. You only pass this way once.

    HeidiSuz, also says, "thanks for me email today !"

    Heidisuz,
    You are so right !! The jobs that I have lost out on were not where I was ment to be right now in my life. I know the right fit will come along, I have 4 potentials out there right now. I know things could be so much worse right now. Our bills are payed, there is food in the house, gas in the cars, and I have had all summer with my children. I have been home with my daughter, my 3rd and final child, her entire first year of life and for that I am thankful !! I hope you keep in touch with me on your job quest as I will do the same !!

    [font=impact] today has been a good day for me! i received a job offer today ! it is a case manager position that i was really interested in. after a few months i will be able to work from my home ofice !! this will allow me to get my kids on and off the bus and still have a full time job. i am still scared that they will take it back, afterall it has happened to me twice already. the know about the "issue" because i was sure to address it in my interview, but until i actually start i will be looking over my shoulder.
    [font=impact]i have learned a lot about myself and my strength as a woman. this has been the hardest thing i have been through to date in my life. i know it has made me stronger and better for it. i have felt this whole time that i was at a crossroads in my career, like i needed to make a pretty big change, and this will be. no direct patient care, my clients will be in another state. i am going from being on a loud hospital unit to sitting infront of my coomputer and conducting phone calls. i feel like this is the direction i want to go, and if i try it and i was wrong, oh well, i tried !!
    [font=impact]i hope this is the start of a new life for myself and my family, i have lost a lot of my innocents during all of this, i guess i was too trusting of people and it bit me in the butt this time. i am a sceptic now and i am going to have to try very hard to soften up those walls i have put up these last few months. i know i will be ok, but it has still been a long hard emotional rollercoaster ride !! and it is not over yet !!!

    the monkey dance. you have made my day, just listen to the insight you have gained in a short time. pat yourself on the back. if you do not go through something then, how are we supposed to learn. always watch your back, there are some mean people out there that do not know any better. yes, i do not want a sick environment job and some have hostile work environments too. stay away is my advice and suggestion.

    i love the phrase monkey dance, and remember life is just a monkey dance and so are the situations you are in with other people's foolishness. keep up the good work. i am making you a spiritual sisiter. love and peace, dogs, cats and heidisuz

    thank you for sharing, never know who it might help. bye

    Well another day has gone by, and they have not called to take back their job offer, I guess at this point no news IS good news. I keep my fingers crossed everyday that this nightmare is finally over and I will start this new job. Not only do I NEED a job I actually WANT this on. It is something I think I will really enjoy !!
    It is sad that it takes something like this to open your eyes to a new world. I look at this so differently now. I know I will forever be a different nurse. You really do have to be paranoid and anal about things in order to CYA !!
    Hope all is well with all of you tonight !! :spin:

    The definition of a monkey dance is good or bad. It can be used as an affectionate meaning or a person who is cruel. EX cruel people will give you a monkey dance with their bad behavior without any respect for you. Then, when someone is nice we can all have fun and do a good monkey dance. We can even have a group hug !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
