@mississippiRN71 Its all going to be okay. I doubt if you will be suspended. I think you definitely want an attorney to argue the fact that you were not contacted for 3 years. Worse thing they could do if make you do monitoring. I don't believe they will suspend you due to the fact that you have been practicing for 3 years and at this point it makes them look stupid. You self reported like you were supposed to, you did your part. I really hope you don't even have to do monitoring because I think its ridiculous after all this time. If you have proof of treatment and can get your boss, coworkers, therapist, sponsor, or anyone else that may be able to give a character reference I would have that ready too. I honestly believe that at this point for you its all about whether or not you want to do monitoring. If you don't I would fight it if you have proof that you have been clean this whole time and they let you renew twice. I got into it immediately because I knew it was coming either way and I wanted to do anything I could to fix my mistakes. Im not even sure you would qualify for monitoring without a board order at this point. The board may also ask for an evaluation to determine if there is a substance abuse problem. I would just wait and see what they say, but I know its all going to be alright. Good Luck and keep us posted!
