lpn reprimanded

  1. I need advice here's my story I'm a licensed LPN however right now it is lapsed here's why when I was a nurse aide and medication aide back in 2005 working at a nursing home I was dating a man who was dating other women at my job I had been constantly harassed well one day me and one of the girls got into an argument so foul language was used but not loud enough for people to hear. Well I resigned from my job and went on with my life not knowing I had been wrote up so I later switched apartments in the same complex I resided in so I never got paperwork til later when I went to nursing school. Well they wouldn't open the case & I got a default judgment and got my nurse aide , Medication aide, and home health aide revoked. The board let me go ahead and take boards and I passed they suspended it the first three months I then took classes and then placed on 2 year probation. So I graduated school in 2006 got my license in 2009 and because no one is willing to hire me with a restricted license I've since been living in poverty I blame myself everyday for my stupid mistake. I later learned my name is on an abuse registry even though it was just words between staff. I let my license lapse last year because I was wore out mentally. I live in the 918 area of Oklahoma is there any advice or any employers that would give me a chance .

    This is one reason why it is often suggested that a person obtain the help of an attorney when they become aware of Board action against their license. If you succeed in clearing up your problem with legal assistance, then whatever fee you pay is worth it over the course of your future career.

    Why don't you see if you have recourse? The TAANA organization TAANA Executive Office - Home can lead you to a local attorney who is experienced in dealing with your Board. Perhaps there is something you can do in your own behalf, even at this stage of the game. Good luck.

    From your description, this entire situation is so unjust. I would think that there is someone at the Board who would listen to your side of the matter, with or without the help of an attorney, but people state they have better results when they have an attorney represent them. I would hope you can have this action vacated. Good luck.
