What is an indefinite license suspension?

Can anybody let me know what an indefinite license suspension is? I'm placed on it for two years and want to know if you think I can try to appeal a year early. A lawyer told me the LPN board is a piece of work and very hard to persuade to get them to see your POV. But told me at least trying in august when I've completed a year is something that can't hurt.

In Louisiana and the board told me I'm suspended for two years but it's usually 4 years but they're doing me a favor. And that I have to pay fines almost $1500.

Yeah and apparently the LPN board down here is way more strict than the RN board, which I don't get because they have way more responsibility than us! And I've also heard that they protect their RNs license, like you would have to do something terrible, like killing someone, for them to take your license. I know RNs who's just been on probation for diverting meds and taking them and also DWIs. It's nuts! But good luck to you, just hang in there. I'm doing restorative care as a CNA. Can't wait to finally work with my license.

Yes, you are correct, but I plan I’m fighting this too the wire, my employer is also assisting me as well, enough of the board and their foolishness, and these compliance dept. workers have never been nurses, refuse to hear our POV, because they don’t know anything about our field

Do your order mention anything at all about when you can re-apply for your license?

 Based on the comments I have read online and interactions with LVNs from Louisiana, the BON down there is known for strict penalties.

It wouldn’t hurt to get a second opinion from a lawyer who specializes in  nursing license protection/reinstatement and deals with the board down there.

I have colleagues who had to transfer their license because of the said “foolishness” with the board there.

With that being said, don’t stop fighting.

Keep your head up.

GET a an attorney NOW! Specifically one who has dealt with state boards. I had a case that was dropped, later I spoke with the expert witness for the board, she was a colleague I knew and she reported the board/DA never sent her the files to review.....crazy. 

You deal with boards get an attorney pronto is my advice.

Reported the board/DA ? To who?

The expert witness told me later after the case was closed no one sent her the records to review. In other words the BON had no interest in providing a fair process to my RN client. Sanctions were filed against the RN by a DON of a CA State prison without adequate investigation. 😆
