Hi my name is Saundra Oberschlake, I have been an LPN for 10 years now. Here is my issue that I hope someone with the same or similar issue has had some experience or advice for me.

6 years ago I missed a treatment on a patient, and was turned into the board. They placed me on probation and put restrictions on my license. I followed my attorneys advice not to tell my employer and when they found out they fired me. I have been out of a nursing position for 17 months now and cannot get hired in a nursing position.

I cant find an employer who will work with me to get this probation over with. Its 6 months to 2 years. I have completed 4 months of it. I HAVE to be in a nursing position to complete it. Right now I am a Housekeeping/Laundry manager for a major corporation.

I LOVE being a nurse. It has really taken a toll on my mentally. I don't know what else to do. Can anyone on this forum give me some advice?:hmmmm:
