  5. license reinstated
    I recommend that you get a lawyer specializing in administrative law who has experience dealing with the BON. Do not "get honest" with the board until you consult with a lawyer. That said, if you...

    I am in Nebraska, where there is no alternative to discipline program and you can sink or swim based on your own guts, not based on any help you are given. :mad: When I have a decent nursing job...

  10. PNAP 41 conditions
    My guess is PNAP is a monitoring program through the OP's BON. I would suggest that Dean222 contact the BON directly. You should be provided with everything in writing if you are going to be...

  11. Working with stipulations
    I think it is a crime that one nasty coworker can cause such fear and pain in a person who is OBVIOUSLY trying to do the right thing and is owning past wrongdoing. :mad: Cartmom :paw:

  14. Help me please!
    I believe Hunny was responding to Johnson103, who, by the way, used a lot "textspeak" which is against the Terms of Service (and a pet peeve of mine, which is why I am mentioning it). Catmom :paw:

    I was out of work for well over a year and a half. Unemployment had run out and I looked ahead and figured I would eventually have to commit suicide. I still don't have a nursing job but I got a...

  23. Does the rejection ever end?

  24. Regarding the Medical Records of Nursing Students
    My advice is to keep it to yourself and tell no one. You are setting yourself up for a lifetime of trouble if you admit that you sought help 8 years ago. It is so wrong what nursing does to people,...
