Worried About a #Malpractice Lawsuit? The Board of Nurses Should Worry You More - Taralynn Mackay, RN, JD #nurseup

Worried About a Malpractice Lawsuit? The Board of Nurses Should Worry You More. by Taralynn Mackay, RN, JD:”Most nurses only think about the Board of Nursing [the Board] when they are undergoing the process of obtaining their license or when they are renewing the license; however, the Board is involved with more than just the licensing of nurses. While most nurses worry and plan around avoiding lawsuits, they give little thought to which actions or omissions might attract the Board’s attention. Even though lawsuits affect a nurse’s wallet, the bigger concern is the impact the Board can have on a nurse’s ability to practice nursing. When most nurses think about relinquishing their nursing license, they assume that it will be due to a voluntary action like retirement or maybe a large inheritance or maybe even winning lottery millions. But, few nurses expect to have to give up their ability to earn money as a nurse because the Board revokes their license or forces the nurse to surrender the license.
