    I had no money for an attorney and still don't. So I took the mark and have been totally compliant so far but now I have no idea what they're going to try to do to me. I am going to do a free consultation with an attorney tomorrow.

    I opted not to do vdap after allegations of diversion. I ended up getting 12 months probation with monitoring. I thought my new employer was going to work with me, but they ended up firing me because I didn't list the hospital that all this happened on my job app. So my manager reported that to board and now I have a new investigation 3 weeks into my probation. This one is for fraud. I kind of want to give up but I'm hanging on. I hope things get better for you....and me.

    I can't afford one. I might just call and do a free consultation. I wonder if they will extend my probation now. And if so will it be more drug testing since this offense had nothing to do with drugs. Uggg. 😔

    Hello all. I started my 12 month probation in Alabama d/t the typical not wasting of narcotics and allegations of diversion. This happened about a year ago. My probation started June 22 so today is day 19. I'm resolved to just buckling down and doing my time, striving to be a better nurse. I received 12 months probation with monitoring. After I was terminated from the hospital where the diversion allegations happened, I then got a job at another hospital. I did not disclose the investigation at that time. When I learned that I was going on probation, I notified my manager and it seemed like they were going to work with me. I brought her my consent order, she signed, etc. But then she informed me she had not run it by HR yet. So about a week in, she calls me on my day off and said not only did HR decide not to work with me, they are terminating me for not listing that job on my job application. As soon as I was terminated, I began seeking new employment and surprisingly got a job at a LTC within 24 hrs of being terminated. I disclosed everything and came clean on everything and I began working there on Monday of this week. It is not a dream job but they are working with me and I'm resolved to being the best nurse I can be and getting back on track. However, yesterday while I was on break, I received a call from BON and they informed me that my previous job reported me for "falsifying job application " and now I'm under further investigation for fraud. She said it was another violation of nurse practice act and a violation of my probation,, but then she stated that I wasn't on probation when I submitted that job application. She is going to turn it over to a board attorney and proceed from there. I'm heartbroken and can't believe that they went that far. I am off today. I didn't sleep a wink last night. Has anyone else been in a situation like this and if so, what happened? Should I even write a statement? They have a copy of my job app. I know everyone will say to contact a lawyer but I have no money for that. Any advice would be much appreciated.
