Has anyone been fired and reported while on a travel assignment. Surrender their license in that state and complete ATD program in their home state?

Anything that results in disciplinary actions in one state will affect licenses in another state.

Yes I am aware of that. But what if I self report in my home state and go through ATD in my home state. Will that protect my RN license if I voluntarily surrender it in my travel state.

I would check with the BON in the state you wish to give your license up and see if they will accept your program in your home state, as compliance?

Your best bet may be to talk to an attorney who has RN license experience.

Good luck and take care of yourself!  Happy New Year.

I was a travel travel nurse before i got help. i was in my home state practicing when it all went down though. i am enrolled in my home states peer program. now that my other licensed states have heard the news they're coming after those licenses now. hoping they will accept my home states program and I can retain them, but I will warn you that of you surrender a license during an investigation you'll be reported to the OIG and they'll likely ban you from working for anywhere that accepts Medicare Medicaid (so almost anywhere other than plastic surgery and private pay assisted living). best advice is to A.) get a lawer and B.) try to see if they'll accept your home states peer program in place of there own.
