What Could Jeopardize a Nursing Career?

Nurses have extremely demanding jobs that put their physical and mental health on the line. When you work long hours under tremendous stress, it’s easy to make mistakes in patient care, from medical prescription errors to HIPAA violations. These situations often lead to a formal complaint before the State Board of Nursing.

A criminal process could also put your career at risk, even if it has nothing to do with your work. For example, failure to report a DUI arrest or conviction, or any criminal conviction that involved using alcohol or drugs, could make you lose your license.

If you face disciplinary actions or believe your license is at risk for any reason, contact an experienced nursing license defense attorney immediately.

What Happens During a State Board of Nursing Disciplinary Process?

A disciplinary process typically starts with a formal complaint against a nurse for inappropriate or unethical behavior.

The board of nursing will review the complaint. If it falls under the board’s jurisdiction, an investigation will begin. Depending on the investigation findings, the board will close the case, issue a disciplinary action, or suggest an alternative solution. For example, nurses who struggle with substance use or mental health issues could receive a referral to the Pennsylvania Nurse Peer Assistance Program (PNAP).

Disciplinary actions against nurses can range from a reprimand to license suspension or even a permanent license loss. Your chances of a favorable outcome are much better with a nursing license defense lawyer on your side.
