You can retire a license, which basically states you're not practicing. It prevents you from being required to obtain CE's while you're retired, but when/if reinstated, you must take CE's to become current. I'm not sure, as I can find no information on this subject, if it would prevent my license from being revoked, suspended due to the disciplinary action being taken against me.
The board has not yet revoked or suspended my license, this will happen after 30 days -- the time I was given to pay the fines and admit guilt which I do not want to do. The disciplinary action/penalty remains on your license "forever" and as I am pursing graduate studies soon, I do not want this prevent me from going into another health career.
Thank you. That lets me know where to go next. I appreciate it.
