Thank you, XXXXX XXXXX a challenge for you..... I think that we might have a case against the state of CA of double jeopardy for making nurses go through 2 trials to practice nursing in the state of CA. The first when they are convicted of a DUI with the county then, when you have to go to trial again with the State Board of Registered Nursing to defend their Nursing license. The Constitution provides us these rights as a country, the State can impose rules and regulations so not to over exceed the Federal Regulations. I got a DUI 3 yrs ago, then the State of CA decided to convict me of violating the Nurse Practice Act of Florence Nightingale almost 3 years later. They made me quit my job, go to 6 months of alcohol rehab, pay $4,000.00, attend meetings every week that you have to pay for.
I'm not sure what the "challenge" is, it seems as if you are suggesting representation. As you may know from the terms of service on this site, the experts are only permitted to provide general information, we are not able to actually represent any customer of the site. Assuming that to be the "challenge", I cannot help you in that way.
