Skillfully Guiding Nurses Through Investigations
When allegations are made that call into question whether a nurse should be allowed to maintain a license, those allegations are typically investigated by state nursing board staff. Nurses who are being investigated have a right to be represented by a defense attorney.
State nursing boards regulate many different categories of nurses, depending on the state. These categories include but are not limited to the following:
- Licensed vocational nurses (LVNs)
- Licensed practical nurses (LPNs)
- Registered nurses (RNs)
- Nurse practitioners (NPs)
- Certified registered nurse anesthetists (CRNAs)
- Clinical nurse specialists (CNSs)
- Certified nurse midwives (CNMs)
If allegations have been made about the quality of your nursing or any other issue that could cause you to lose your nursing license, it is important to retain a defense lawyer right away.
Even the most informal investigations, such as questioning by telephone, can have serious consequences later on. You should not speak to any nursing board investigators or board members without an attorney present.
