It depends on your state. I have a nursing license but screwed it up with my addiction and have to apply for reinstatement. I know that when I went to school, GA forbid nurses to have felonies and maintain their licenses. That has all changed.

Most boards of nursing have websites and you can get a lot of info from that. If not, just call and ask them. I have to apply for reinstatement as an "impaired nurse" and go through an intense probation period of 4 years, and my license will always have a "mark" on it.

I also know that with MY nursing probation, home health is forbidden...you have to be under direct supervision.

I'm about to start jumping through the hoops to get my license back....want to join me?

Hugs and prayers!
