Happy New Year! I am returning to work after a two week staycation. I did a little work everyday but I really needed some time to unwind and relax. I read all four Twilight books. Jacob is hot!!!
Well its back to work with a bang for 2010 and I am excited and ready for the challenges of this new decade.
I received an email yesterday from a nurse who signed a Consent Agreement with the State Nursing Board and what's to know what can be done to change the Agreement. I also received an email from a nurse who entered into a State Nursing Board Alternative to Discipline Program for Chemical Dependency and now wants to quit the program after 6 months. Okay. Let's get the New Year started right and I want to make this the first post for 2010.
If you are involved investigation or matter with the State Nursing Board, contact an attorney. Even if you don't decide to retain an attorney speak with an attorney about your situation. I love the nursing online chatrooms, boards, and forums because I think to a certain extent those online forums are educating us as a profession on the practical minefields in nursing practice.
But as Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz said "there is no place like home", as a license defense attorney (who would love to own a pair of bright red slippers like Dorothy) I am saying "there is no substitute for legal advice and counseling."
I know money is tight but so are skinny jeans after the Holidays. Retain an attorney or at least consult with an attorney if you have a situation that may involve your nursing license.
