Fight to Keep and Protect Your Livelihood
Once your license has been revoked, you must file a Motion for Rehearing no later than twenty-five (25) days after the date the revocation went into effect.
Therefore, it is imperative that you do not waste any time in acting to fight this revocation. A failure to comply with this timeline could mean that you must wait the requisite time period (usually a year) before you can petition the TBON for the reinstatement of your nursing license.
The TBON is looking for you to provide certain information in your Motion for Rehearing for them to decide whether or not to grant you your request. It is important to keep in mind that anything that is written or disclosed to the Board in your Motion for Rehearing can result in additional allegations from the Board or the loss of the ability to make certain defenses. For this reason, it is imperative that you do not attempt to complete this process yourself.
Providing the TBON with the information it requires increased the likelihood that your Motion for Rehearing will be granted.
If the TBON does not feel that your Motion for Rehearing meets their requirements, they will deny your Motion. If your motion is denied, you will have to wait the requisite time period (usually a year) to petition the TBON for reinstatement.
The TBON can take up to ten (10) business days to process the Motion for Rehearing. Once the TBON has made a decision, they will usually send you an email either denying or granting your motion.
We are just one call away
If your Motion for Rehearing is granted, your work is not over.
Your nursing license will be reinstated, however, now you must fight the allegations or charges that were presented against your license in the first place. Again, it is very important that you do not complete this process by yourself either. An experienced nursing license attorney can help you navigate through both of these steps to ensure that you and your license are protected.
