Registered nurses (RNs) are among the most important of all health care workers. Becoming an RN is a very lengthy, challenging, and costly experience. Yet, all the hard work and commitment that you put into earning a nursing license can be unraveled by a single accusation of wrongdoing. Cases presented to the Board of Registered Nursing are highly critical and should be treated as so. It’s not uncommon for a patient to have unrealistic expectations from a nurse who has met the acceptable standard or care or for a false or exaggerated charge to be filed. But good nurses also make simple mistakes, especially when working extreme pressure.
If the complaint made against you contains allegations of criminal activity, ethical violations, or violations of state health codes, you’ll be investigated. This could cause emotional stress and could easily tarnish your reputation. However, many RNs make the mistake of thinking that their case is not serious if it’s before the Board and not in a courtroom. No matter the accusation, your case is very important, especially given its ability to have long-lasting effects. The Board has the power to block your application, strip you of your license, suspend or restrict your license, or force you to resign from nursing.
