- 0Jun 29, '12 by bpowers5211My heart goes out to you as I myself have also made poor decisions in my past. However, some times we go through trials in our life for reasons we can not explain. I would keep pressing on. Also, if your record was truly expunged and the BRN didn't catch anything when they ran a background check, I don't see how a local hospital is finding stuff. When your record is expunged you are not legally required to claim the mistake. I would research some attorneys and explain your case. Might be able to get a pro bono.
- 0Jul 17, '12 by love2244I just received a letter from the Board of Nursing that states an investigation has been started because the find evidence that a brech of the nurse practice act as be violated such as ". Obtaining a license by fraud" even though I self reported!! Im in a process of an eviction and can't afford a lawyer!! I thought things would have been better but I may loss my RN license!!! There goes my dreams?!!1. If I do get to keep my license will it forever state I was investigated??2. Will anyone hire me with an arest and past investigation on my liscence??
- 0Jul 19, '12 by FLmomof5It is a bit hard to follow through your posts. Did you tell the board that you had a conviction @18 that was expunged? The application for nurse in FL is very clear....you must disclose ALL convictions regardless of expungement or withheld adjudication. If you did not declare these, you have a serious issue! If your "self report" of your criminal history came after you applied for the license and were granted one, you have brought your lie to their attention. It may help that you 'came clean' but I have no real idea about that.
Expunged and withheld adjudications should not be discoverable by employers but should be there for the BON to see and should match your application wherein you disclosed them at the time of application. If you failed to do that, then you integrity is at issue with the board.
It is a day late and a dollar short at this time. This is where I advise that you get an attorney. You will need all the help you can get in keeping your license.
- 0Jul 23, '12 by love2244Your right FLmomof5, so now I am accepting the fact that I am no longer going to be a RN and have settled to just wait for my time to pass on earth. I've got hired as a cashier to pay my loans and this is now my career take care and be greatful for a blessing life you have!!!
- 0Jul 23, '12 by caliotter3You should have obtained legal advice before contacting the Board but that is probably now water under the bridge if you have decided to give up. Best wishes for the future. Should you decide to take up the issues with your license, get an attorney before dealing with the Board again.
