Very curious if anyone has every dealt with anything like this...lost

  1. I need some advice, I got into some trouble with a domestic dispute. I have hired a criminal attorney that is taking care of the legal matter aspect. I am unsure of what to do here. Anybody have advice about how I go to the board with this? Do I call them? Do I wait till I renew? HELP! Very worried RN

    We cannot offer legal advice. You need to work with an attorney, preferably one who is familiar with nursing licensure. TAANA.org is a good resource to locate such an attorney.

    Not only can't we offer legal advice states and laws vary. Where I live a disordery conduct doesn't even show up on your record. In a different state that could be a completely different scenario.

    And, in addition to what Rose Queen oosted, do not discuss this with anyone other than your attorney. You might also consider asking one of the moderators delete this post.

    Best wishes as you work through this.

    Thank you so much! Sorry....I have never had to deal with any of this and am just so lost. My attorney cant tell me what to do either...just was reaching out to see if there was anyone else had anything similar.

    Thank you! I edited my original post just searching for anyone that has dealt with anything like this. I really wanted to reach out to question when you tell the BON about an issue...I just don't want to look like I neglected to tell them. I have tried calling to get help but constantly busy signal.

    You still have a lot of identifying information in your post. If your attorney cannot tell you what to do, then you need another attorney- that's why you need someone familiar with nursing licensure.

    I fixed it...took out all identifiers I believe. Thank you!

    Check your BON's website for any rules requiring you to report things. Otherwise, wait until renewal time and then answer all the questions honestly. If the form asks only about convictions and you haven't been convicted of anything, then it's a no. If it asks about arrests or investigations and either of these has happened, then it's yes. Provide them with the truthful information they ask for and no more.

    Unless your attorney tells you otherwise. Best wishes.

    Thank you so very much! I spoke with the BON and they stated once the case is closed, I need to submit the certified documents with an explanation of the who, what, when and why. I have a meeting with another attorney that works for nurses and the BON as well. I wish I had realized that from the get go, I would have just hired him.
