Call Forshier Law, LLC immediately. Timing is critical as responses are usually due within ten days. Do not delay! This is a serious issue and may affect your ability to practice nursing, and your livelihood. The Minnesota Board of Nursing can potentially revoke your license if you do not properly respond to and refute these allegations. If you are slated to appear before the Minnesota Board of Nursing, you will need an experienced nursing license defense attorney to protect your right to practice.
What would happen to my nursing license if the licensing board doesn’t believe me?
Everything depends on the specific details of your situation, how severe the allegations are, and what type of nurse you have been up until this point. Your license could be suspended for a set period of time or it could be revoked entirely. You could be required to pay a fine. In some circumstances, you may be required to complete additional education and training before you return to your job. You may be required to have supervision while working or while completely specific job duties. The Board of Nursing can also order you to limit the scope of your nursing practice. If your allegations involved substance abuse or mental health disorders, you may have to be subject to monitoring services provided by the Minnesota Health Professionals Services Program. Due to the varying nature of every case, it is highly recommended that you seek out consultation with an experienced nursing license defense attorney to defend you in this time of need.
