RN to LMT...post discipline in Ohio. Possible?

  1. Anyone have any advice.....
    I am an OH RN, I have been disciplined and have permanent restrictions.
    I want to become a LMT but it is licensed through the Ohio Medical Board. Does anyone know if this is even possible....all the Ohio Medical Board can tell me is that it is on a case by case basis.
    I, like many others, made a decision out of fear and signed their consent agreement and now stuck in this situation.
    I have been sober since 2011 and actually have been working for almost 2 years as a nurse. I am in a case management position but am thinking of switching gears.
    This has been a heavy cross to bear and will ALWAYS have to notify the board if I take a position outside of a staff nurse.
    I want to employ mysef, maybe start a hollistic healing center. I can't do that if I can't get licensed.
    Any advice?
