Caught Diverting in Florida

  1. Was caught diverting Dilaudid in Florida. No police charges yet (sure they are on there way). This only happened 3 weeks ago. Any advice on immigration circumstances? Miraculously, I have not been fired, and my Visa is valid for 3 more years at this hospital, who I suspect will fire me as soon as arrest occurs. Just looking for any stories/experiences people have had while practicing in the United States as an International RN and diversion. Florida has the IPN program (waiting on contract), just looking for input. This lasted aprox. 2 months, no excuse, will take my punishment, just so many hypothetical/uncertainties at this moment.
    Thank you
