HELP!! Previous reprimand?

  1. 1
    I've been stressing out so much that I thought I would create an account. Almost three years ago I was targetted as a union rep and reported to the board. After obtaining a lawyer, the end result was a reprimand of unprofessional conduct, failure to collaborate in a healthcare team, and failure to report in SBAR format. Even though I feel as though I am not guilty, I have become such a better nurse from it, and all around I am thankful. Currently I am in NP school. I am SO scared that after I graduate my state will not approve my license because of my prior reprimand. Although I appreciate advice, I am asking only nurses who have been through this to respond.

    Each state is a touch different but if a "complaint" was against your license then it will show. If it was resolved it might show as closed/resolved and sort of a non issue. I know a NP friend who had a similar, likely much bigger thing that happened as a RN, it was a non issue.

    do not stress over it. Recognize it as you have and move on.

    Thank you very much. Can I ask you a few questions? Did you take your classes online? If so, did you feel prepared. Did you specialize?

    No, brick and Mortar, and I am faculty Associate in same, honestly am not comfortable with a lot of online programs as they have no ability to offer community connections, and learning that I think a hands on in your face lecture, with engagement gives.
