I understand we are all in the same boat. Regardless of why, we all have insight, info and encouragement that we can share. I agreed to surrender my license simply because this was a huge ordeal. The NP I worked for actually did jail time. I was so tired, frustrated and honestly never thought I would want to practive ever again. So after a year of not nursing I received the order and decided to surrender than to follow up with it. Then a few years later, missed it with every fiber of my being. That is when I reapplied and because of the "charting" and the way things were done as far in the clinic, possibility of diversion is what they came up with. Although I had issued several hair follicles that were negative, ect. ect. ect. they presented my attorney and I with this order and she suggested I accept it. So, here I am. I am getting to do what I love and so in all honestly, it's worth it. I'm not guilty of diversion, but I am and was guilty of not making sure we did everything by the book as far as charting, nar counts, wasting...ect.
It's been a 5 year ordeal...surely I can do another 1 or 2!
