Has anyone ever surrendered their nursing license out of ignorance and later gotten it back?

If you enter "surrender my license" or similar in the search bar at the top left you may find what you're looking for.

Most of us would encourage you not to do so. Good luck.

If you haven't already surrendered , I wouldn't do it!  I've seen horror stories on here about all the hoops you have to go through to get it back.

I surrendered it without legal guidance in 2017 because I substituted a drug/alcohol test and admitted it. The test csme back dirty for cocaine. I did not use drugs whatsoever, but I wasn't supposed to drink alcohol and I did have a glass of wine. 

I was afraid the ETOH would show up. However, they retested my urine and even did a hair analysis both were negative for any substances. 

The board said I couldn't be trusted even though I was honest and owned up to my mistake.

I crushed my own heart surrendering, but I was afraid of going to a higher court and having it revoked for 5 years. 

I am retaining a lawyer.

Did they say why they couldn't trust you?  Mine explained exactly why they could when I followed what they asked.
