I entered into a Consent Order on November 5, 2003 with the Nursing Board. I completed all the orders and received a 100% compliance letter, and the reinstatement of my licenses with no restrictions in 2007. I don’t understand why their is still the consent order attached to my nursing licenses. I just thought after so many years it could be removed. It is very embarrassing having to explain to potential employers. I always loved nursing and was a very good nurse. I have stayed out of nursing because of the stigma of the consent order. I want to go back to nursing very bad, and think if this old record could be removed my chances of working in Home Health would improve. I am 57 years old have had and done many different jobs since 2003 have even received other Ga. licenses. I would really be thankful if You could help me.
