THE BOARD OF NURSES AND JUSTICE

It often fails to be just for those who have experienced a Board of Nursing action against their license. It is not uncommon to experience false or highly overstated charges. It is true that the Board has a duty to protect the public. One would think, however, that it fails to protect the public when yearly thousands of nurses are removed from practice, and many are innocent or good nurses who made a mistake. Unfortunately, once a nurse has received Board of Nursing Formal Orders, posted on several national sites, it is difficult to obtain employment. Boards of Nursing, therefore, have a duty to carefully, thoroughly, and accurately evaluate all of the evidence. It is not to give the nurse her "Just Due" to consider the original received complaint as true. Complaints should be proven as true and not acts of retaliation or a facility placing blame on the nurse to protect themselves from the scorn of regulatory and accrediting bodies.
