I finished...again!

  1. This is my second go around at probation. I got my letter today! I'm in Arkansas. I'm done! Finished! Feels unreal! Hang in there everyone! You too can do this! One day at a time. Keep your faith and your eye on the prize!! It sucks but it's worth it and doable. Message me with any questions if I can help. Especially if you're with the Arkansas BON! Best of luck and Happy nurses week, all!

    Finally, seeing another Arkansas nurse made me finally quit lurking for the last week and register! LOL

    I started my consent agreement back in January and will be under it for four years. So far all has been well, and it has not been too hard to manage. Fortunately, I FINALLY got my first job back in nursing TODAY, and it will become much easier to manage from a financial standpoint. It really has not been as bad as I feared it would be, overall.

    What kind of stinks is that, 10 days before my consent agreement was ratified, ARSBN approved a rules change to implement an alternative to discipline program! I'm happy for those that will come after us, but it sounds like we will be the last bunch of people who have no choice but to accept their disciplinary actions. Oh well, you reap what you sow, I suppose...

    CONGRATULATIONS on completing your probation!! You give me hope!

    Yeah, I read about the new alternative program coming up. I thought that I read you couldn't work as a nurse during that time. That would've been very difficult for me since I'm single. It's just like a top secret organization and you never know what's going on...ever. That's what makes is scary. Let me know if I can help you in anyway. I can give you my personal email. This whole thing can be tiring and a little overwhelming at times! Hang in there! You got this!
