Are you in CA? They use public reprimand as a slap on the wrist, to make sure you realize you were fortunate to miss an act of real discipline, that would somehow limit your scope of practice. Anyway, pull up your state BON, type in your name/license, if the 'publci reprimand' is of significance, there will be a comment regarding the status of your license. I received a 'letter of warning' from CA BON about my DUI, but on the website my license reads as 'clear', with no other comments. Some states use the term 'censure' instead of 'pubic reprimand, by the way.
