I've been terminated X 2 days and referred to IPN in FL. I've been recommended to contact them before the BON does. I've been studying the boards and need a little fill in info if you don't mind. How long do I have to contact IPN? How long before my 3 hour eval once I contact them? Some on the boards say get a lawyer ASAP, others, not so much. If I need one, how much time do I have to get one? I'm looking for an AA meeting and a friend of mine will help me find the right one. I'd like to get that started before I go in for my appt.
RE: JOBS: I can take a non-nsg job @ anytime- right? Does anyone know how hard for an NP to find a position- nsg or otherwise? My spouse is supportive. He says just take the time to heal. I don't care for the idea of not pulling my own weight as much as possible. Fine time to think of that now!
Thanks for any info you can provide.

I don't know the specifics to your questions regarding time frames, but I will say this:
Get a Lawyer! Facing the board can have permanent results on your license. You wouldn't defend yourself in criminal court. Don't defend yourself against the board...they hold your career in their hands.
