An RN wanted a Florida nursing license, but she was concerned about two prior DUIs and the fact that the Board of Nursing told her she needed an IPN evaluation.
Benefit of Using Chapman Law Group:
The nurse retained our attorneys to assist with helping her obtain her Florida nursing license without the need for an IPN evaluation or monitoring contract. The nurse was concerned, and rightly so, that almost every RN with a prior DUI history who goes to IPN for evaluation is ordered to enroll in IPN. We worked with the RN to obtain several good character references, prior employment records, proof of prior alcohol counseling, and a current addiction evaluation. We submitted a detailed package to the Board of Nursing and argued that the nurse was fit to practice and should be granted a full nursing license without the need for monitoring or an IPN evaluation.
The Board of Nursing agreed and granted the nurse a full nursing license without an IPN evaluation or referral.
