Can you find work with a revoked license?

On Behalf of | Mar 8, 2021 | Professional License Issues |

License revocation is one of the worst things that medical professionals can experience. As a nurse, you depend on that license to find work. You put time, effort and money into it.

So what can you do if it gets revoked? Fortunately, there are still job opportunities out there that you can apply to even with a revoked license.

According to Chron, working as a nurse may no longer exist within your reach. But while you are working on getting your license reestablished, there are other options in the medical field that you can consider applying for.

Medical assistant

This can come in the form of a nursing assistant or a general medical assistant position. A nursing assistant’s position will allow you to experience work very similar to that of a full-time nurse. But you might not qualify if a history of patient abuse or neglect is your reason for license revocation.

A medical assistant works in a doctor’s office or clinics. Their job is to handle all clerical and administrative tasks. Unfortunately, this is not a good fit for individuals who found the active side of nursing to be the most fulfilling or interesting. Medical secretaries fill the same niche, but also offer the same potential problems.

Home health aide and personal care assistant

A home health aide often handles housekeeping, personal care and daily tasks to help make an individual’s life easier. You will have to face a background check, which may prove a hurdle to you. But if you can pass this, you can enjoy the benefits of a fulfilling medical career.

If you want to learn more about your options, consider contacting a legal professional. They can coach you through the possibilities.
