    "I had so much pride, overcoming the obstacles of my youth and being the first person in my family to graduate college and now I feel like the lowest of the low and that my life has no value. I guess I put all my identity and self-worth into being a Registered Nurse. "......

    Your current situation doesn't take away any of your accomplishments. It doesn't matter if you have the title RN or not, you are still that person. Nothing can change that.

    I understand where you're coming from. I recently surrendered my license. As I let go of the letter, I burst into tears. The last piece of my identity was gone. I have no idea who the hell I am. Later I realized that a nursing license is similar to a marriage license. It's a piece of paper that means nothing. Surrendering my license didn't change anything about me. I'm still that person that is determined and faught like hell to GET that license in the first place.
