Glasgow, KY asked in Employment Law, Medical Malpractice and Probate for Kentucky

Q: Limited probation of nursing license

I am on limited probation in KY as an LPN. In my agreed order it mentions if I can’t meet the agreement terms I could put in writing that I wanted to surrender my license and it would only be for a period of 2 years then I could try to get them back. Is there a possibility that they wouldn’t let me have them back at that point? And is there even a point in acquiring and attorney at this point?

A: There is a real possibility that they might not let you back in. You should consult an attorney immediately before you do anything. In any event, I would not recommend surrendering your license.
