Getting a certified letter informing you that a complaint has been filed against your nursing license is a frightening, embarrassing, anger producing, and intimidating situation.
The effects of a complaint with the Nursing Board, your career and your physical and mental health can be minimized with proper actions. I have found these tips very helpful in my years of practice:
- Contact your insurance carrier. If you do not have insurance, it is too late to purchase it to cover this investigation; however, you need to carry your own malpractice insurance (be sure it also covers regulatory actions).
- Hire an experienced administrative attorney. You do not have the time nor the knowledge to effectively defend your license. An attorney that has experience before the state board in the current state you are practicing, can help you navigate the upcoming obstacles.
