He uses meth and decided that I would be viewed as "guilty by association" since I am married to him. We have been separated since last July. He told me that they said I used "speed" in August and was bringing home Morphine from the hospital. The board sent me a little without ever investigating asking me if I wanted to accept enrollment in the TPAPN program; which I politely declined. They have told anyone who will listen. My case has been referred back to the board for further investigation. I have been a nurse 20 yrs and have NEVER been referred, reprimanded, etc. I have never used drugs and have never had a positive urinalysis. I have had two random drug screens for pre-employment agency work in the last two months. I'm thinking with the letter he has written me and all the texts I have from both of them, that it should resolve without issue. However, this is not a good place for any nurse to be in, innocent or not. It leaves you with a "stigma".
Thank you and I will begin that process with the board. My only other clarification is this. Since his mom filled out the form and signed her name as complianant, it would be her I needed to cite in a suit correct? And is it possible for me to prepare and file the Tort of Libel myself and if so, where can I find those forms?
Thank you very much, I truly appreciate your assistance. Even though some may think this trivial, I am good at what i do and nobody should try to take someone's career and way of life away from them out of true evilness. I don't care if they have a dime and I get nothing, it is now a matter of principal for me. Again, thank you so much!
