Is challenging a board of nursing discipline an uphill battle? – ANA Continues to Speak Out Against Harmful Cuts to Health Care. – (866) 348-2889
A reader’s RN license was revoked “on a default” due to her being criminally charged with disturbing the peace, a misdemeanor.
The nurse petitioned the board of nursing to reinstatement her license and it agreed, placing her license on probation. Later, the criminal misdemeanor was dismissed and the charge reduced to an infraction.
The reader wants to know if she can still be placed on probation even though the charge was reduced. She is planning to petition and ask that her discipline be reduced to a reprimand instead of the two-year probation.
All the details concerning this process in this nurse’s state is not known. To begin with, she did not share what her conduct was that resulted in the disturbing the peace charge.
