Have Legal Questions? Ask a Lawyer Now.
Do you drink to the point of passing out often?
Can you go without drinking?
I wonder who reported you to your state board?
Have you been in trouble with the State board in the past?
Unfortunately, once the State Board hears of something like this occurring, they usually take the action you describe. Their main function is to protect the public from nurses who may be dangerous or who potentially may work under the influence of a mind altering substance. You are now in the system and will have to go through the process set forth in order to keep your license.
I can have your question transferred to our lawyers if you wish.
Okay, I am requesting that this get sent to the lawyers on our list. I'm sure they can offer you more advice.
