Well, it has been a long road for me.  My license was revoked for my failure to complete and comply with the BON confidential alternative program.

That was 17 years ago.  I moved to a new state, have been clean and sober and decided I want my nursing license back.

I have completed my refresher course and now am just waiting on placement for the required clinical hours.

I am aware I will be stuck in monitoring land for at least three years, but, I am more than willing to do so.

The hoops I have jumped through have been many, but, I am so excited to get on this journey and get this monitoring over with and return to nursing.

I have spent hours on these forums reading words of wisdom and hope and elation (when the program is over) and I thank you all.

Not going anywhere, just wanted to share my good news!

We can do this!!!

Been all those places you speak of and it's very worth it. I drove down to Kissimmee on the weekends, stayed Saturday nights in a hotel for my clinical refresher hours. Boy, was I relieved when that was over. 

I'm now working off my narcotic restrictions. 

I hope it all goes smoothly for you. Please keep us updated on any little victories.

Thanks for that inspiration. Did you get your license from another state. Or the state that originally revoked your license. Thanks

My original license is from another state.  I contemplated going back there to do their program, but, honestly, I just cannot see myself in that state.  I never liked it!

So, I am trying in the state I live in now.  I have talked with the BON and they do license RN's previously revoked in another state, but, obviously, I will have to go through their program.  I am willing to do so.  I do not think it would be any better or worse in my previous state.
