If a state board denies the application of a practitioner who did not have the required number of practicum hours, should the action be reported?

What to expect when your nursing license is suspended – Alabama Nursing Board Defense Lawyer – Call Today!

What to expect when your nursing license is suspended – Alabama Nursing Board Defense Lawyer – Call Today! – (866) 348-2889

A reader submitted a question about her RN license being suspended and wonders what she should do to get her license back.

A suspension of one’s professional nursing license is a serious discipline. Only a revocation is grimmer. Although any professional licensure discipline may present problems, a suspension raises unique complications.

The written order of suspension
The board’s written order of suspension is key to strategizing a course to obtain re-licensure. It will include requirements the individual must meet in order to apply for reinstatement of the license.

Although the reader did not include why her license was suspended, the more serious the reason the board took that action against her the more difficult it is to overcome. For example, if the license was suspended because of the commission of a crime for which she was convicted, the board will carefully evaluate the applicant’s character and fitness to be re-licensed.
