I think this is a line in a West Coast rap song. I will have my legal assistant try to find the name of song or maybe I can write the lyrics.
The summer is coming and that means license renewal time. I am smiling from ear to ear writing this post because RN and LPN license renewal makes me want to dance. I can do the money dance from June 1st to October 31, 2010 because its nursing license renewal time in Ohio, Kentucky, and Indiana. I am also receiving more inquiries from other licensed healthcare professionals related to license renewals: RTs, PTs, OTs, etc.
If you have to self-report a criminal conviction or another Board action on your LPN license renewal application, you need to speak with an Ohio license defense attorney before you submit your application. This does not mean you are REQUIRED to retain an attorney but you should speak with someone about your issues because it ain't all smooth sailing when you disclose criminal convictions to the Ohio Nursing Board.
RNs and LPNs in Kentucky are renewing this year also and have to disclose criminal convictions and other issues to the Kentucky Board of Nursing.
In Indiana, its LPN renewal this year I believe. I am sure someone will correct me if this is incorrect.
Don't want to speak with an attorney or don't want to retain an attorney? I am not offended and I certainly understand but do your research. Review the Board's website, read the Board newsletter, and get an idea of what to expect going forward when you self-disclose information on your nursing license renewal application.
And don't even think about falsifying your renewal application. That's when things really get ugly and I am receiving more phone calls and inquiries from nurses and NCLEX-Applicants who have failed to disclose and report information on the initial applications for licensure and/or the license renewal applications.
In some states, this is grounds for revocation of your nursing license.
Think and then think again before you intentionally or negligently fail to disclose information on your State Board of Nursing applications. When I receive calls or emails or faxes in these types of cases, I scramble to find my calculator to compute my fee. No, just kidding:)
