If a nurse were to forget to renew their license, and continued working for an entire month, how likely do you think it is that the BON would allow him/her to keep his/her license? Anyone have experience with this?
You "forgot" to renew your license, despite the notifications from the BON and your employer?
BTW, there's no such thing as working "under an expired license" -- you're just working without a license
. Your employer didn't catch this? I remember when a close friend of mine didn't realize, at our first renewal out of nursing school, that there was no grace period and it was really important to renew on time, and let her initial license expire; the first day she showed to work after her license had expired, she was met at the employee entrance to the hospital by someone from nursing administration, who told her to go home and not come back until she had an active license again.
The sooner you get this dealt with, the better. Whatever the BON consequences may be, they will just get worse the longer you work without an active license.
