Can nurse’s discipline be barrier to continuing nursing education? – Alabama Nursing Board Defense Lawyer – Call Today! – (866) 348-2889
A reader who has been a nurse since 2007 wrote about her termination from a previous job due to a HIPAA violation.
The violation was reported to the state board of nursing. She was disciplined and required to pay a fine and take several classes. She successfully did both.
The nurse applied to an RN-to-BSN program but said she was not accepted because of her discipline by the state board of nursing. She wondered if she could continue her education and if all nursing education programs hesitate to accept RNs who have been disciplined.
