It's my first post here. I am licensed RN in WV, and have been since 2005.
This year, I was 2 days late completing application.
I paid the fees, and submitted. The question that says have you ever been convicted
of a misdemeanor or felony, etc charge, I answered NO. However, I have been.
LET ME SAY: In the past, I answered yes, and it gave a few lines for explaination, and
I would put "Previously Submitted Info", because all documents were submitted prior to the
board and no new convictions. Since there was no drop down lines for info, I didn't want to
make it look as tho there were any NEW charges. My conviction was in 1999.
They are placing my application with the Disciplinary review committee.
Why would I lie about it now, when I have always answered yes? It was just a weird moment
in time that I checked no.
It has been over a week, when will I know something?
What are the odds that I won't get anything against license?
I have been TOTALLY honest with them, and sent in a written explaination,
yet my license is hanging in limbo....
Advice? (other than check yes next time, I got that)
