The Disciplinary Process

July 10, 2022

If a nurse receives a letter from the Board of Nursing alleging breaches of the standards of care or infractions of patient safety practices, it is best to seek legal representation. Every state has a variation of the disciplinary process. The process plays on various levels, such as investigation of the allegations, meeting with investigators, hearings with the board, and appeals through the court system. Licensure issues fall under administrative law (Box 2-6).
